Egg Breakfast Burritos

Ingredients

4 Wholemeal tortilla wraps
200g Cooked brown rice (optional)
50g Baby spinach
100g Chopped tomatoes
6 Eggs
2 tsp Rapeseed Oil
200g Grated Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese
Handful Chopped coriander leaves
1 Chopped/Mashed  avocado
100ml Plain Yogurt
2 Limes
Salt & pepper

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 180C.

Chopped the tomatoes, wash and drain the baby spinach leaves and grate the cheese.

Mash the avocado with a squeeze of lime juice to prevent it from turning black and adding a little zing to it.

Beat the eggs in a bowl until combined but not completely homogenous. Season to taste. Heat up the oil in a non-stick frying pan and cook the eggs on a medium heat until cooked but not dry. Stir frequently so the eggs cook evenly.

While you are cooking the eggs, put your tortillas in the oven to warm up.

Spread a couple of tablespoons of the rice (if using) in middle of each tortilla, add some spinach, chopped tomatoes, a layer of avocado, a sprinkle of cheese and a little yogurt if you like. Finish with some chopped coriander.

Roll your burrito by folding up the bottom of the tortilla to cover the filling. Now fold in the sides (about 2cms each) to ensure the filling doesn’t come out and roll up the bottom of the tortilla until you get a perfect burrito. Serve with some lime wedges.

Serve with lime.
