*3 Ingredient Vegan Chipotle Mayo:

  • 1/4 cup Vegan mayo
  • 1-2 chipotle peppers from chipotle peppers in adobo 2 is quite spicy
  • 1 lemon juiced (about 3-4 Tbsp)


  1. Preheat oven 425F.
  2. Toss sweet potato in oil and 1/2 Tbsp chili powder, salt and pepper, place spaced out on baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, prep chipotle sauce:

  1. Place all the chipotle sauce ingredients (except for water) in a high-powered blender or food processor and pulse until smooth and creamy, and all the chili peppers are blended.


  1. Heat skillet medium, drizzle oil and sauté onion approximately 10 minutes until thoroughly cooked, set aside.
  2. Scramble the eggs/ tofu, pour over skillet, let cook about 2 minutes until bubble and move them around in figure 8 motion until scrambled/ thoroughly cooked, remove from heat.

Prepare burrito wrap:

  1. Place the wrap on a clean surface. Spoon a thick layer of black beans, followed by greens/sprouts, a couple of slices of avocado, chopped tomatoes, caramelized shallots, eggs/ tofu (or opt-out), and a drizzle of chipotle sauce, if adding some cheese or Greek yogurt go ahead (just a small amount of each will do fine).

  2. Take one end of the burrito and fold over the ingredients, lightly tucking the edge under your pile of ingredients. Then fold the bottom up and the top down, followed by the other side, roll tight.

If you have a Panini press, this wrap would taste delicious lightly pressed. Alternatively, you could sprinkle some cheese/ oil and garlic sauce, on top and broil for 2 minutes.
