Makes 6 burritos

  • 14- to 16-ounce tub soft or firm (but not extra-firm) tofu
  • 1 tablespoon Earth Balance or other vegan buttery spread
  • 1 cup salsa (your favorite variety—try black bean and corn,
    cilantro-garlic, chipotle, etc.)
  • 1/2 teaspoon good-quality curry powder, or to taste
  • Six 8- to 10- inch soft flour tortillas
  • 1 1/2 cups (approximately) vegan cheddar or nacho cheese

Heat the Earth Balance in a medium skillet. Add the tofu and mash with a potato masher or large fork.

Stir in the salsa and curry powder, then cook over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes, until well heated through. Turn the heat up and cook a little longer if there is excess liquid in the skillet that needs to evaporate.

Microwave each for 30 to 40 seconds, or arrange all of them open-faced on a baking sheet, and bake in a preheated 350 degree F. oven until the cheese is melted. Fold two ends over the tofu mixture, then roll up the rest. Repeat with each burrito, then serve at once.
