The Vegan Slow Cooker for Two or Just You comes out tomorrow so will you join me in some overnight breakfast burritos to celebrate?
Sometimes even I need a change from oatmeal. Make this burrito filling right before you go to bed, and it will even let you sleep in. (Add extra water if you’ll sleep in longer than 9 hours.) If you have leftovers, prep extra burritos and store in fridge or freezer for busy weekday mornings.

This recipe uses a 1 1/2- to 2-quart slow cooker (like all the recipes in Vegan Slow Cooking for Two or Just You)
1 1/2 cups (258 g) cooked or 1 can (15 ounces, or 425 g) black beans, rinsed and drained
7 ounces (200 g) tofu, crumbled (no need to press)
2 tablespoons (11 g) cooked onion (page 19)
2 tablespoons (19 g) green pepper, minced
¾ cup (175 ml) water
½ teaspoon ground turmeric
¼ teaspoon ground cumin
¼ teaspoon chili powder
¼ teaspoon smoked paprika
Salt and pepper, to taste
4 whole-wheat burrito-sized tortillas (**use gluten-free)
Extras: salsa, vegan sour cream, Cashew Cream (page 28) or *Extra-Thick Silken Tofu Sour Cream (page 28), shredded vegan cheese (*omit to make oil-fee), lettuce, avocado, etc.
The night before: Add black beans through smoked paprika and cook on low for 7 to 9 hours.
In the morning: Taste and add salt and pepper. If your tortillas are stiff, put them one at a time over the mixture in the slow cooker and steam them into submission. Spoon 1/4 of the mixture onto the tortillas. Add any extras you’d like, roll up, and serve.
