A protein packed vegan burrito with an amazing filling made out of crispy tofu, fresh kale and flavorful baked lentils. This is the perfect lunch-to-go as you prep and wrap it in foil! Absolutely delicious, filling and nourishing.
Rinse green Lentils and fill into skillet, together with veggie broth. Turn on medium heat and let cook for about 15 minutes or until lentils absorbed most of the broth.
When water has been absorbed add spices and stir lentil frequently. Remove from heat and set aside.
Set skillet on high heat. Add water. When pan is hot crumble Tofu in it.
Add salt and pepper and stir until browned and crisp on all sides. Turn off heat and set aside.
Defrost frozen or rinse and drain fresh Kale.
In small sauce pan on medium heat add water and minced garlic. Stir frequently for about 2 minutes.
Add Kale and stir until wilted, for about 3 minutes. Turn off heat and set aside.
As Kale releases a lot of water (frozen Kale comes quite moist) make sure to sit on paper towel for a few minutes to soak up excess moisture!
Cut Avocado in half, take out flesh into a bowl. Mash Avocado with fork.
Add diced red onion, chopped cilantro, lime juice and red pepper flakes and mix together until everything combined. Set aside.
Onion & Bell Pepper
Set skillet on medium/high heat and add water. Slice red onion and bell pepper.
Add onion and peppers to skillet and stir for about 5 minutes or until onion is translucent and peppers have softened. Season with salt & pepper. Turn off heat and set aside.
Fill your Burrito like so…
Get your whole wheat tortillas ready:

– Pan fry on medium heat for about 3 minutes on each side in clean dry frying pan (no oil or water added)
Layer lines of all prepped fillings in the center of your burrito. Add Asian sauce and this could be:

– Hot Chili Sauce
or any homemade tahini/soy/peanut sauce. Anything will go with this! Voilá
