Scrambled tofu

  1. Gently fry the garlic in the oil in a small saucepan or frying pan for about 30 seconds until lightly golden. Don’t let it burn.
  2. Add all the other ingredients to the pan and mix together.
  3. If you would like the mixture to be a little less dry then gradually add a splash of plant milk until you achieve the desired consistency.
  4. Heat to warm through for approximately 5-10 minutes.


  1. Place the hash browns in the toaster and pop them down a few times until they are a dark golden colour on the outside and cooked through on the inside. Make sure you switch off the toaster at the mains before removing them. (If you’d rather heat the hash browns in the oven then follow the instructions on the packet for oven cooking.)


  1. Using a large frying pan, heat a little oil on a low-medium heat.
  2. Place the tortilla into the pan and sprinkle over the vegan cheese. Heat for a couple of minutes. (You can also pop the tortilla with vegan cheese in the microwave for 30 seconds).
  3. Remove the tortilla from the pan and then place the scrambled tofu and other filling items down the centre of the wrap. Add the sauce of your choice.
  4. Fold the sides of the tortilla over the ends then roll the burrito tightly.

Did you know that Vegan Recipe Club is run by a charity?

We create vital resources to help educate everyone – vegan veterans, novices and the v-curious alike – about vegan food, health and nutrition; as well as the plight of farmed animals and the devastating environmental impact of farming.

Through this work we have helped thousands of people discover veganism; but we want to reach millions more! We rely entirely on donations as we don’t get any government funding. If you already support us, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you are really making a difference!
