Chef's Notes

Gluten-Free
Use gluten-free or organic corn tortillas.

Flour-Free
Omit the tortillas and enjoy as a vegetable scramble instead.

Soy-Free
Substitute 1 (15-oz) can black beans or fat-free refried beans for the tofu scramble.

Prep Ahead
For best results, make the burrito filling ahead and assemble just before eating.
