High Protein Vegan Tempeh Burritos – Healthy Plant-Based Dinner

I think burritos don’t need any introduction. They are easy and quick to make, a great way to get rid of your leftovers and you can have them at any point of the day. And let’s admit it, everyone loves them.

I’m sure you’ll love this burrito as well. This vegan burrito is filled with beans and tempeh and therefore also high in protein. The burrito is super simple to assemble, as a burrito should be. But if you want to put in some extra work, you can make a lot of the ingredients yourself (and we recommend it). Especially the guacamole.
