Vegan Freezer Burritos

Do you ever have those days (or weeks) when you feel like you’re firing on all cylinders at work and in your personal life? When you’re super busy and it makes you insatiably hungry? That’s where these easy, pop-em-in-the-oven, vegan freezer burritos come in clutch.

I made a double batch of my chickpea and red cabbage scramble last week, and wrapped half in soft spinach tortillas (you could use any tortilla flavor your like) with some leftover brown rice and a sprinkling of sliced green onions and vegan shredded cheese. The cheese is optional and we rarely buy it because nutritional yeast usually gets the job done in a more healthful way, but there’s something about biting into a burrito with warm, melty cheese…occasionally you just have to do it.

Dipped in your favorite spicy salsa, this is one comforting, filling, and EASY meal for those hangry but short-on-time types of moments when you could very easily go to town on an entire bag of sweet potato chips and a vat of guacamole (we’ve all been there…right?!). A vegan freezer burrito is a better idea, trust me.

  1. I think I need to stock my freezer up with these! Sometimes I get in a bind and have nothing for dinner, so this would prevent me from hightailing it to the nearest taco place (which, luckily enough is a block from our house!)

    1. Amanda says

      We do the same thing with the burrito place near us. Hopefully this helps us curb that habit a bit!

  2. O man, I totally want this!
    We didn’t really get any snow here in DC, haha! Just a teeny tiny bit and they still canceled my morning class (after I already went all the way there…in the cold!) Haha!

    1. Amanda says

      Ugh, that stinks that you got all the way to class before learning it was canceled!

  3. Caitlin says

    i love that these are filled with chickpea scramble!

    all of that snow…ugh. yesterday, everyone in philly was bitching because the forecasters totally got it wrong for us and rather than getting 8-14 inches like they expected, we got….1-2. even though i hate the snow, i was looking forward to being “snowed in”. but, alas, i wasn’t and had to go to class at night :/ but looking at your instagram i realized how lucky we really were that we avoided the majority of the storm. sending positive vibes and thoughts of spring time your way <3

    1. Amanda says

      Chickpea scramble is my current favorite meal. It only made sense to put it in a burrito next!

      I don’t really understand the people complaining about the lack of snow in some places. Less snow > more snow in my book. (and this last blizzard was a doozy!)

  4. hope you are staying warm, i have been meaning to give scrambled chickpeas a try, this burrito is totally calling my name.

    1. Amanda says

      You must try chickpea scramble! It’s such a nice alternative to tofu scramble.

  5. Jennifer says

    I love making homemade freezer burritos. I usually just take leftovers and wrap them up with rice. Like I love taking curries and wrapping it up in a burrito with rice and sometimes tofu. I’ve gotten pretty creative too, the most creative one was a “japanese” burrito, using grilled tofu, sake boiled sweet potatoes, sake peppers and eggplant with a mushroom gravy. It was crazy good.

    1. Amanda says

      Um, can you make me some “Japanese” burritos?? That sounds insane.

  6. Kait says

    AWWWWW I got an unofficial shout-out! *happy dances*

    Yes I’m claiming all of NYC for my own. *ahem*

    Also – I could have used these tonight! Sadly, our freezer stinks and freezer-burns everything within days. Its so so sad but not the worst thing since I tend to let things live in the freezer forever.. =/

    1. Amanda says

      You’ve probably already tried this, but do you still get freezer burn if you wrap the food in plastic wrap, then foil, and THEN put it in a freezer-safe bag? That seems to do the trick for me, and I’ve been known to lose things in the freezer for a very long time.

      1. Kait says

        I haven’t actually tried that. We don’t really keep plastic bags in the house as I’ve been trying to get us to be plastic-free…usually just use pyrex (OMG pyrex how I adore thee). Any hacks for that?

      2. Amanda says

        I’m not sure…I’d love to go completely plastic-free though.

      3. Kait says

        Join the crowd – we alternate between being GREAT at it and not-so-much. The latter is usually when we have leftovers from family events…

  7. We got a serious dumping here too! These would have been so nice to wake up to this morning when I had to trudge through all the snow to work. Thank goodness I bought good winter boots this year!

    1. Amanda says

      Good winter boots make SUCH a difference! I’ve yet to find an awesome pair, though my tall rain boots, fleece socks, and toe warmers are pretty solid. (so much gear just to go outside!)

  8. Meghan says

    Thanks for sharing this, Amanda! It looks insanely good πŸ™‚ I’d like to give it a try, but my dad can’t eat any legumes… any suggestions for alternatives? Would this work with tofu?

    1. Hi Meghan! I haven’t tried this recipe with tofu, but I don’t see why crumbled tofu wouldn’t work. πŸ™‚ Let me know if you give it a try!

  9. Toya says

    Hi would microwaving it for a few minutes work? Then toss it in the pan wrapped in a foil? I think 40-45 minites of oven is just too long for me. Would love to hear your opinion about this. Wonderful recipe by the way. Thank you

    1. Microwaving should work just fine! I would try cooking it as you would any frozen burrito in terms of setting/time (and of course, don’t forget to remove the foil πŸ˜‰ ).
