Healthy Breakfast Burrito
- 16 ounces dried red lentils
- 2 ½ cups water
- 1 teaspoon salt , for the lentils
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil, divided
- 12 ounces vegan sausage, such as Field Roast
- ½ cup onion, diced
- 1 cup green bell pepper
- 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced (cremini or button - I used button)
- ½ cup salsa, your favorite
- 10 whole wheat flour tortillas
- Put the lentils and the teaspoon of salt in a large saucepan. Add water to just cover the top of the lentils.
- Bring to a boil and cover the pot. Turn down to medium-low heat.
- Cook 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and the lentils are tender but not mushy. Set lentils aside.
- In the meantime:
- Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
- Brown the sausage on all sides. Set aside.
- Add the prepared onion, bell pepper and mushrooms to the pan. Cook for about 10 minutes. Quite a bit of liquid will cook out of the mushrooms.
- Cut up the "sausage" into small chunks.
- You will have a lot more, of everything, than what is shown on the plate in the photo above. This is just to show you the wonderful ingredients after they are cooked.
- Now place some lentils, bell peppers, onion, mushrooms, "sausage" and salsa down the center of a tortilla. Fold in each side to keep the ingredients from falling out and roll up the burrito. You can see in the photo what they will look like.
- You can eat right away or keep in a tightly covered glass container in the refrigerator for 3 days.
- Heat each burrito in the microwave for 15-20 seconds or bake on a cookie sheet at 350° for 20 minutes.
