Super Easy Soy Burritos

Here is an easy dinner that we like to have every couple of months. It satisfies my need for Mexican food! Have fun with it.

Super Easy Soy Burritos


2 pkgs. Smart Ground, Mexican Style
1 Tbs. Canola oil
Romaine lettuce, sliced thin
2 tomatoes, diced
1 cup of cheddar style vegan cheese, grated
1 can of black olives, sliced in thirds
1 container of Tofutti Better than Sour Cream
Your favorite salsa (we used Herdez medium)
1 package of burrito-style flour tortillas


In a medium skillet heat the oil on medium heat. Take a potato masher and smash up the Smart Ground in the oil. Cook for about five minutes, until heated through, stirring occasionally. I like to put the other ingredients, except for the tortillas, in a divided party tray, so everyone can take what they want. To easily fold a burrito up - I'm going to add these simple directions because there are some people that actually would like help in this area - put your burrito filling towards one side of the tortilla, fold that side over the filling, fold up the bottom, and finish rolling the first side over. If necessary, keep tucking the bottom end up to make sure the filling doesn't fall out. Open wide! Feeds five hungry vegans.


  1. I so love burritoes, I make mine with tvp!!!!
    I think I will make some tomorrow, great idea, and simple too! You rock! lol

  2. Wow, I'd like to see your version of the burrito! I hadn't thought of TVP. Thanks for the idea. :)

  3. Hmmm, I wonder if I can make something similar but use a flax flat bread? That could be a fun experiment. Thanks for the inspiration.


  4. Sounds interesting! I'd like to see what you come up with, Alicia. :)

  5. Excellent...I love tortillas. Good job!

  6. I like how you always are always generous w/the olives in your savory recipes.

  7. Hey, believe me, with three kids, my husband and I still barely get any! :)

  8. My family and I love burritos. Someone needs to tell me why I haven't made it in so long then. Thanks for the trigger.
