Directions

Click:

  1. Preheat an oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. To a bowl, add the soy veggie ground and spice mix and stir to combine.
  3. Take a wrap, and top it with a heaping ⅓ cup of refried beans, spreading it out over half the wrap. Sprinkle overtop of this about a ¼ cup of the soy veggie ground mix.
  4. Continue to add to the wraps the remaining ingredients, to your liking: bell pepper, scallions, corn, cilantro, olives, and jalapeños.
  5. Fold in each side of the wrap, then roll, starting from the closest edge, until the wrap is closed. Place seam-side down on a baking tray.
  6. Repeat with the remaining wraps.
  7. Bake in the oven on the centre rack for 7 - 10 minutes, until the wraps are lightly golden. If after 10 minutes they are not golden enough to your liking, turn on the broiler and grill them for a minute. Keep your eye on it so it doesn't burn in that time.
  8. Allow the wraps to cool to room temperature before wrapping them in parchment paper and freezing.
  9. To reheat, remove from the freezer and thaw in your lunch bag or the fridge until you are ready to eat. A thawed or slightly thawed wrap will reheat faster than a frozen solid wrap. Use the microwave on a thawing mode (400W or lower) for 2 minutes, flip and heat for another minute. Continue to heat at 30-second intervals until the wrap is heated through. Alternatively, toast in the oven at 390°F (200°C) for 5 minutes, flipping at the halfway mark, adding extra time if needed. For stovetop reheating, place a medium non-stick pan on medium-high heat and place the wrap in the pan. Heat for 3 - 4 minutes on each side, until the sides are toasted and the wrap is heated through.
  10. Top with desired garnishes like salsa, guacamole, avocado slices, or hot sauce. Enjoy!

Notes

  • * Speed-it-up: by using a store-bought burrito or taco spice mix.
  • Tip: some fillings don't freeze well, like tofu, fresh tomatoes, or lettuce. Instead, add those as fresh toppings on the day you're eating the wrap.

Storage

  • Keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months.
  • When storing in the freezer, make sure to wrap them in parchment paper so they don't stick together or to the sides of the storage container.

Delicious!!
Only not sure about the black olives in this one. I think next time I’m gonna leave them out.


Aldora - Sept. 4, 2021, 8:38 a.m.

I loved these! They were delish! My only problem is I could not wrap them like I had planned. I thought mine were "large" tortillas but apparently not large enough. I'll just eat them like a taco instead, no biggie.

PUL Team - Sept. 4, 2021, 5:39 p.m.

Hey there, Aldora! Thanks for sharing your experience with this one. It's super appreciated to help PUL improve. The tortillas we use are about 24 - 25 cm (10 inches) in diameter which we've now added to the ingredients to make sure others don't have the same issue, so thanks for sharing! We're so thrilled the recipe was enjoyed in any case 😃


Natalie - Sept. 1, 2021, 9:24 p.m.

These are delicious! However, the tortillas I bought apparently weren't big enough to hold all of the fillings, and I couldn't seal them properly to store them in the freezer, which is why I decided to make them. Could you specify how big your tortillas were? Thank you!

PUL Team - Sept. 2, 2021, 3:57 a.m.

Hey Natalie, sorry to hear you had trouble wrapping up these ones. Our wraps are about 24 - 25 cm (10 inches) in diameter. I hope this helps!

Natalie - Sept. 2, 2021, 1:53 p.m.

Thank you so much for your response! Yes, it seems like I used tortillas that were a bit too small. Is there any way I can change the review to five stars? :)

PUL Team - Sept. 3, 2021, 3:37 a.m.

Aw very kind of you, Natalie - I'll ask Robin and see if it's something we can modify. And thanks again for your feedback, we've actually updated the ingredients to more clearly indicate the size of the wraps so that others don't have the same issue. It's super helpful in helping us improve our system over here, so thanks a million! 🤗


Marie - Aug. 29, 2021, 2:41 a.m.

Thank you for this excellent recipe! 💕 I'm excited to have something both easy and enjoyable to bring to campus for lunches. I also appreciate how your recipes provide the option to calculate measurements based off of how many servings are desired.

PUL Team - Aug. 29, 2021, 9:39 p.m.

So glad you enjoyed the recipe and new website functionalities, Marie, it means so much!


Melissa - Aug. 9, 2021, 10:08 p.m.

What a good idea! I left a couple of the ingredients out because I do not like them. And I'm ready to go for the week.
On another note, what kind of knife was used in this video?

PUL Team - Aug. 10, 2021, 4:26 a.m.

Hey Melissa, thanks for the review and question! We mostly used a chef's knife in this one. You can learn more about our preferred knives in our kitchen essentials article if you're interested and haven't already seen it: pickuplimes.com/article/kitch… :)


Ali - Aug. 3, 2021, 7:42 a.m.

Sooo delicious! Put in extra corn and used black beans instead of refried beans... The jalapeños are a new favorite for me!!


Adele - July 26, 2021, 7:15 p.m.

Writing this review with a burrito in my tummy! 😁 First homemade burrito we did and as always your recipe exceeded our expectations. Delicious, super easy. Thank you once again for all the great work you do!

PUL Team - July 28, 2021, 3:59 a.m.

Aw you're too sweet, Adele, so glad you're enjoying the burritos 🤩


Katherine Vorster - July 25, 2021, 6:56 p.m.

This is the most recent recipe of yours we have tried. Wow. They are so easy, so delicious and so convenient. Fresh or from frozen they are super yummy.


Randa Pause - July 24, 2021, 10:04 p.m.

I have made this recipe a couple of times for my friends and they looooved it!
Thank you so much for this delicious recipe 😁


Ori Aniri - July 24, 2021, 9:29 p.m.

I always struggle to cook in advance, so I always spend money on take away lunches. These burritos are saved my money over a week😀 they are testy even if you need to eat it cold. I also added some chipotle sauce for more reach flavour ☺️

PUL Team - July 26, 2021, 8:15 p.m.

Oh, Ori, we appreciate this so much! We're so happy to hear the burritos have been enjoyed 🤩


Anastasia - July 24, 2021, 7:36 p.m.

Tried these for a no fuss easy breakfast reheat, but ended up eating them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. These are super tasty, filling, and so easy to make. Froze and reheated well.

PUL Team - July 26, 2021, 7:38 p.m.

Woohoo! So happy to hear the burritos were enjoyed, Anastasia 🤗


Michelle - July 22, 2021, 6:54 p.m.

I made a ton of these burritos, planning to freeze them so I could eat them later… I ended up eating about 15 in one week. These are so tasty and are great to grab on your way out each morning! 😊


Anna - July 22, 2021, 4:56 p.m.

Batch-made them, but then we ended up eating those for breakfast, lunch and dinner, eating up the whole batch in a day because it was so good! Thanks for this & much love!


Chenny - July 11, 2021, 11:45 p.m.

As a person who prefers savory breakfast foods over sweets, I was so excited to try this and this definitely did not disappoint! I will keep making this in the future!

PUL Team - July 17, 2021, 2:04 a.m.

So happy to hear, Chenny, thank you for taking the time to share :D


Clémentine - July 10, 2021, 12:59 a.m.

Amazing recipe ! I made it to feed several friends for my birthday parties and to have some left in the freezer, due to the amount I made it was a bit time consuming but well worth it ! Very filling and satisfying :)

PUL Team - July 10, 2021, 10:28 p.m.

What a lovely idea, Clémentine! So happy the labour of love was worth it 🤗


Margaux - July 8, 2021, 11:37 p.m.

I made these to use a big 1kg pack of tortilla I had laying around, I was not disappointed!
I switched the ingredients up and made two different kind of wraps with what I had on hand, but the oven tip is really what takes this recipe to the next level ! The burritos are nicely sealed and it's so easy to pull one out of the freezer for a quick meal, thank you Pick Up Limes!
My non vegan friend even asked me to bring her some :)

PUL Team - July 11, 2021, 2:22 p.m.

What a lovely review! Thank you, Margaux ✨😃


Elle - July 8, 2021, 9:38 p.m.

Made these for ease of preparation work breakfasts and I was not disappointed. So delicious and wholesome and I really enjoyed how simple they were to prepare. I so appreciate the obvious time and thought that you put into every recipe. p.s. extra delicious with a simple topping made of avocado, lime juice, and garlic powder.

PUL Team - July 11, 2021, 8:25 a.m.

We're so grateful for the support, Elle! Thank you for sharing the lovely review and toppings you enjoy this one with ✨


Kirstyn - July 8, 2021, 8:57 p.m.

These burritos have been a big life saver over the last month. They were super fast to make/assemble (I used canned refried beans and whatever veggies I had in my fridge) and make a perfect breakfast or lunch if you don't have time to make it! I microwave to warm them up but have also put them in the toaster oven to get the wrap a little crisper.

PUL Team - July 11, 2021, 12:52 a.m.

We appreciate the review so much, Kirstyn! Thank you for sharing 💖


Gabriella - July 8, 2021, 6:23 p.m.

These are super amazing. Makes my breakfast so easy as I pull them out of the freezer.
Love your recipes and the fact that they are vegan and healthy. Keep the recipes coming.
Would love to have nutritional content in your recipes as I need to stick to about 1400 calories a day as I am only 1.55 metres (5' 1").
Your website is amazingly beautiful and well designed for ease of use. Thanks so much.

Monique - June 25, 2021, 2:46 p.m.

Hey, sounds like a delicious recipe I will try it for sure!
I was wondering what would be an ideal amount to eat for breakfast when you are 53 years old?
Kind regards,

PUL Team - June 25, 2021, 3:27 p.m.

Hey Monique, thanks for the question! How much the "right amount" is really varies from person to person. For some of us, it may even change from day to day! For example, sometimes our appetite might be more if we've had a more active day or less for other reasons.

For these burritos, we've approximated a serving to be one wrap. Feel free to enjoy more or less based on your needs though. Working with a registered dietitian may be beneficial for personalized nutrition support in this sense.

Mitch - June 20, 2021, 6:13 a.m.

Been eating these all week! So quick and easy to make and they hold up great in the freezer. Even my non-vegan roommates looked very interested, I’d give them a bite if I didn’t want to have them all myself. Next time will be making even more to share, thanks for another amazing recipe!

PUL Team - June 21, 2021, 6:36 a.m.

We're so thrilled to hear this, Mitch, and so kind of you to share! 😊


TS - June 18, 2021, 9:32 p.m.

Hey :)
I have a question ^^ does the vegan mince have to be cooked before added into the burrito? or do you add that in raw ^^

PUL Team - June 21, 2021, 6:18 a.m.

Thank you for the question, TS! We added it straight from the package (uncooked) as the baking time in the oven is generally enough for soy veggie grounds we've come across. You could always double-check the package instructions for the brand you use and cook it beforehand if desired 😊


Bekah - June 17, 2021, 3:05 p.m.

WOW! I have been vegetarian for years and recently have began my vegan journey. Your YouTube channel and blog were recommended to me by a friend and I am SO glad I found it! I just made these burritos and they are so good! Thank you so much for this recipe! ❤️

PUL Team - June 18, 2021, 2:50 a.m.

We appreciate this so much, Bekah! We're so glad you joined our PUL family and enjoyed the burritos 😃


PD - June 12, 2021, 10:06 p.m.

PUL Team - June 13, 2021, 1:14 a.m.

Thank you for the incredible review, PD! We're so glad the burritos were enjoyed 🤗
