Breakfast Burritos, With Eggs, Avocado & Mexican-Style Cauli Rice
Swap the high-carb ‘Spanish Rice’ and beans for Fullgreen’s Cauliflower Rice With Tomatoes, Garlic & Herbs’ and transform your favorite Mexican street food heavyweight into a healthy, veg-packed breakfast on the go. Loaded with avocado, egg, cilantro and chili, it’s guaranteed to kick start your day, without leaving you feeling heavy or sluggish, like its high-carb Mexican cousin.
A great breakfast sets you up for the day. So back away from sugary cereals and leave those high-carb muffins at the coffee shop. Instead, reach for a full-flavored burrito, inspired by those, low carb, Northern Californian wraps. Our recipe is meat-free and rice-free but so delicious you’ll feel like you’re on a cheat day.
For an even lighter burrito, swap the white flour tortillas for wholemeal or gluten-free options, forget the sour cream, go easy on the cheese and get your kicks by piling high fresh tomatoes, chili and cilantro.

Ingredients (For 1 Burrito)
1 x 7oz Pouch, Cauli Rice With Tomatoes, Garlic & Herbs
1 x Soft Tortilla (we prefer Gluten-free)
2 x Eggs
2 x Fresh Tomatoes
1/2 an Avocado - Sliced
Red Chilis - Chopped
1oz Light American Cheese - Grated
1 x Fresh Lime
How to make it
Empty the Tomato, Garlic & Herbs Cauli Rice into a bowl and stir through to separate the grains
Scramble the Eggs in a flat pan and allow to cool
Coarsely chop Tomatoes and drain the juices. You don't want your burrito to be wet!
Slice the Chilis (how many you use is your choice!)
Thinly slice the Avocado and squeeze Lime juice over it (this stops it turning brown)
Place the Tortilla on a sheet of aluminum foil
Prepare the burrito by lining-up generous helpings of each topping across the Tortilla
Add Cauli Rice, then layer Eggs, Avocado, Tomatoes and Grated Cheese on top
Sprinkle generously with Chili and Cilantro Leaves
Fold the sides of the Tortilla inwards and roll it tightly
Wrap the Burrito in foil and twist the ends to keep it together
Here's an idea
Make your burrito in the evening and wrap it. Chill overnight and grab it on your way to work.
