Healthy, delicious Mexican Breakfast Burrito Bowls with roasted sweet potatoes, seasoned black beans, homemade turkey chorizo (optional- or use vegan chorizo) avocado, cilantro and an egg (or sub scrambled tofu). Easy, Full of flavor and lightened-up! Vegan-adaptable.
Weekend mornings start off slow around here, with breakfast sometimes morphing into the lunch hour. By the time we’ve gotten around to it, it’s already noon and we’re famished. It was Brian who first started making these Mexican Breakfast Bowls for us, and I really love them because each time they are just a little different, based on what we have on hand and what’s in season.
Here, they’re with roasted sweet potatoes, black beans, a lightened-up turkey chorizo, avocado, cilantro, scallions and an egg. (Leave off the chorizo, or sub soy chorizo for a vegetarian version.) In summer, add tomatoes or sautéed bell pepper or even zucchini, keeping it seasonal. In fall, try it with braised kale, or white beans and sage. You get the idea!
The eggs can be scrambled, poached, over easy, sunny side up or however you like. You can even leave the eggs off altogether and use scrambled tofu, which I really like too.
The sweet potatoes can be roasted in the oven or cooked in a skillet.
The easy flavorful Turkey Chorizo can be whipped up very quickly – and the best thing is the leftover turkey chorizo is delicious in so many other things too – think tacos, burritos, pizza or nachos or this Enchilada Pie Recipe.
If looking for a vegan alternative, you can always try this Walnut Chorizo, or use store-bought version.
Heat and season the black beans. Scramble, poach or fry the eggs. And once your ingredients are ready, just assemble, dividing among the bowls.
Top with avocado, cilantro, scallions and tomatoes when in season.
Drizzle with hot sauce or a little dollop of sour cream.
