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.
