Alternative Preparation Method: Oven-Baked Veggie Burrito With Tofu
- 4 large flour tortillas
- 1 1/2 cups of tofu, cubed and marinated
- 2 cups of mixed bell peppers, thinly sliced
- 1 cup of red onion, thinly sliced
- 1 cup of corn kernels (fresh or frozen)

- 1/2 cup of salsa
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 teaspoon of ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon of chili powder
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
- In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add marinated tofu cubes and sauté until they develop a golden, crispy exterior. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
- In the same skillet, add sliced bell peppers, red onion, corn, and black beans. Season with ground cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Sauté until the vegetables are tender and the flavors meld together.
- Place one flour tortilla on a clean surface. Layer it with a portion of the sautéed vegetable mixture, crispy tofu cubes, shredded cheddar cheese, and a drizzle of salsa.
- Fold in the sides of the tortilla, then roll it up tightly to create your burrito. Place it seam-side down on the prepared baking sheet.
- Repeat this process for the remaining tortillas.
- Bake the burritos in the preheated oven for about 10-15 minutes or until they’re golden and crispy.
- Once baked, remove from the oven, let them cool slightly, and serve with additional salsa or your favorite toppings.
Tips for making Veggie Burrito With Tofu
- Tofu Tricks: For an extra-crispy texture, freeze your tofu before using it. Thaw, press, and marinate for optimal flavor absorption.
- Balanced Spice: Be cautious with the spice. Adjust chili powder and cumin to your preference; it’s easier to add more heat than to cool it down.
- Even Distribution: When assembling the burritos, distribute the ingredients evenly to ensure every bite is a harmonious blend of flavors.
- Prevent Sogginess: To avoid soggy burritos, don’t over-saturate your tortillas with salsa or other condiments.
- Crispy Finish: For an even crispier finish, lightly brush the burritos with olive oil before baking.
- Refreshing Side Salad: Pair your baked Veggie Burrito With Tofu with a crisp green salad dressed in a zesty vinaigrette.
- Guacamole Galore: A side of fresh guacamole with tortilla chips is the perfect complement to the flavors of the burrito.
- Sour Cream and Salsa: Serve with a dollop of sour cream and a variety of salsas to customize the level of heat.
- Chilled Beverages: Cool things down with a refreshing iced tea, a citrusy soda, or a classic horchata.
- Mexican-Inspired Rice: A serving of Mexican rice with tomatoes, onions, and cilantro completes the fiesta on your plate.
