Protein packed Quinoa Egg Wrap Breakfast Burrito to start your day.

Quinoa Egg Wrap Breakfast Burrito

Egg wrap, egg crepe, egg tortilla, egg roll. Whatever it’s called, it’s pretty brilliant. Just whisk 2 eggs to make a thin omelette to use it as a wrap. It’s a quick gluten free, protein filled nutritious addition to your breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Egg Wrap is kinda my new favourite. Especially leftover egg wraps. All you need is about 5 minutes to make the egg wrap and reheat the leftovers. Just beat 2 eggs and the egg wrap is ready in 2 minutes for any leftovers, or to wrap fresh salad ingredients.

Customise your egg wrap flavours with any sauce or paste. Red curry paste for Thai wrap. Pesto for Italian wrap. Hoisin Sauce for Chinese wrap. Miso dressing for Japanese wrap. Well you get the idea.

I made some quick Refried Black Beans by using the pressure cooker, and together with leftovers of quinoa, guacamole and mango salsa (from previous fish taco recipe), American style Breakfast Burrito is served for brunch.

The trick to get a really thin flawless omelette is sieving the whisked eggs to get rid of the membrane parts and using a non-stick pan on medium heat. Using a normal pan with oil still gets the omelette stuck to the pan. 2 medium eggs makes a thin omelette with 16cm pan. Adjust the eggs required with the size of your pan.

Quick Refried Black Beans with dry beans using pressure cooker (no soaking needed)

Serves: 3-4 cups
Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Place dry beans and 1 teaspoon salt in the pressure cooker and add enough water to cover the beans by two inches. Cook the beans according to the instruction time on your cooker. Mine is 15 minutes to get it mushy soft.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoon of olive oil in a large frying pan on medium high heat. Add the chipotle powder, chili powder and cumin. Once the spices are sizzling, add the chopped white onion and cook until translucent, add the garlic and cook a minute more.
  3. Add the cooked black beans (and liquid from the pot) to the frying pan. Use a fork (or potato masher) to mash the beans in the pan. Let them cook 3 to 4 minutes longer. If the beans are a little soupy for your taste, just let them cook longer. If too thick or dry, add more water. Adjust seasonings to taste.
  4. Garnish with chopped green onions and fresh cilantro. Great in tacos or burritos, or for a dip with corn tortilla chips.

Notes
I cooked the soaked dry beans in pressure cooker first. If you are using cans of cooked black beans, skip the first two steps, rinse and drain the beans and add to the pan with a little water in step 2.

  3. Can I know whether sourdough bread is gluten free?

    • Usually Sourdough dough/bread is made using long natural fermentation, it can be made with wheat/rye/spelt/other grains flour which contains gluten. Check if the sourdough bread is made using gluten-free flours

  4. Great suggestions for what to put in an egg wrap. I have in the past done a kind of greek salad thing, and also put in poached salmon with herbs, but I really do like these ideas very much, Shannon.
