Scrambled Tofu Burritos


1 lb. tofu (firm, water-packed), rinsed and drained
1 12.3-oz. Mori-Nu tofu (firm or extra firm)
1/4 c. nutritional yeast
1 1/2 T. imitation chicken seasoning
2 t. imitation beef seasoning
1 t. Vege-Sal (or any vegetable seasoning)
1/2 t. garlic powder
1 4.5-oz. can diced green chilies
1 c. green onions, chopped
10 whole-wheat flour tortillas


Crumble both kinds of tofu into a mixing bowl. Add yeast, seasonings, and green chilies; set aside. Sauté 1 cup chopped green onion in water until water is gone. Mix in seasoned tofu, and simmer approximately 15-20 minutes. Serve wrapped in flour tortillas with your favorite toppings.

NOTE: I make the filling and then let each one of my family fill their own burrito. That way they can put on their own favorite toppings. Sometimes I put mushrooms in the filling for variety. If I am serving these at a brunch for a lot of guests, I fill them all ahead of time and keep them warm in the oven until ready to serve. I put the toppings out buffet style and let the guests choose their own toppings. Topping suggestions: Tofutti Better than Sour Cream, fresh tomatoes-diced, guacamole, tofu cheese, salsa, black olives-sliced, lettuce-shredded.
