Chipotle Vegan Burritos with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

These Chipotle Vegan Burritos pack a one-two protein and fiber punch, with a filling of vegan sausage and tempeh. All of this healthy goodness is complemented by a salsa of fresh vegetables. Dip the burritos in a cheesy red pepper sauce for even more deliciousness at breakfast or lunch.

Course: Main/Breakfast
Cuisine: Mexican fusion, Vegan
Servings: 10 burritos


  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup coriander or cilantro leaves, finely chopped
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ pound cremini mushrooms
  • 1 12.5 oz package Field Roast chipotle sausage, remove from plastic casing and crumble with your fingers or chop finely with a knife (Another brand is perfectly fine-- Trader Joe's has a great-tasting vegan chipotle sausage)
  • 1 8-oz package tempeh, crumbled
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • Salt to taste
  • 10 whole wheat burritos

For zucchini-tomato salsa:

  • 1 medium zucchini, finely diced
  • 1 lage tomato, deseeded and finely diced
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • 1 jalapeno or other green pepper, deseeded if you want less heat, and minced
  • Salt to taste

For roasted red pepper sauce:

  • 1 large roasted red pepper (I used a jarred kind, but you can certainly roast your own)
  • ¼ cup raw cashews
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • Salt to taste


  • To make the sausage-tempeh stuffing, heat the oil in a wok or a large skillet. Add the onions, garlic and cilantro and saute until the onions start to brown.
  • Add the mushrooms and cook for a few more minutes until the mushrooms loose all moisture.
  • Add the chipotle sausage and the tempeh and continue to stir-fry about five minutes more. Check salt and add more if needed.

Make the salsa:

  • Place all salsa ingredients in a bowl and mix well and let it stand for a few minutes for the flavors to mix.

Make the roasted red pepper sauce:

  • Place all sauce ingredients in a blender and blend into a very smooth sauce. If needed, add more water.

Assemble the burrito:

  • To assemble the burrito, place some of the sausage tempeh stuffing in the center and top with some salsa.
  • Gather up the sides of the burrito and then roll. I like wrapping one end in aluminum foil to make it easier for little hands to handle the burrito without dropping the filling.
  • Serve the roasted red pepper sauce on the side.
