Chorizo Tempeh Breakfast Wraps

These wraps are hearty and super filling. The tempeh is seasoned with chili powder, cumin and garlic to give it a spicy, smoky flavor similar to chorizo sausage. And for my on-the-go breakfast crew, the wraps are super easy to make ahead of time.


1 1/2 cups (375 mL) peeled and cubed sweet potato (about 1 small)

1/2 onion, sliced

2 tbsp (30 mL) vegetable oil, divided

1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt

12 oz (375 g) tempeh, roughly chopped

1 red bell pepper, sliced

1 tbsp (15 mL) nutritional yeast

1 tsp (5 mL) chili powder

1 tsp (5 mL) ground cumin

1/4 tsp (1 mL) garlic powder

2 cups (500 mL) coarsely

chopped kale, ribs removed

4 flour tortillas

1/2 cup (125 mL) tomato salsa

These wraps are great to make ahead, but the directions differ slightly from the recipe. After reheating, serve with salsa on the side for dipping. To freeze Let the filling cool completely. Assemble through Step 4, but do not add salsa. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and store in the freezer for up to 3 months. To reheat from frozen in the microwave Remove plastic, then wrap tortilla in a damp paper towel. Place on a plate and microwave on High for 2 to 3 minutes, until heated through. To reheat from frozen in the oven Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Remove plastic and place tortilla on a baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until heated through.


  • Large rimmed baking sheet, lined with parchment paper
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Place the sweet potato, onion, 1 tbsp (15 mL) oil and salt in a large bowl; toss to coat. Spread onto the prepared baking sheet in an even layer (reserve the bowl) and bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes or until the onion is starting to brown.
  3. Meanwhile, add the tempeh, bell pepper, remaining 1 tbsp (15 mL) oil, nutritional yeast, chili powder, cumin and garlic powder to the reserved bowl; toss to coat. Add to the baking sheet and stir gently to combine. Bake for about 15 minutes, until the sweet potato is fork-tender and the tempeh is golden. Remove from the oven, add the kale and bake for 2 more minutes, until the kale is slightly wilted.
  4. Remove from the oven. Divide the mixture among the tortillas and top evenly with salsa. Roll each tortilla up from the bottom, like a burrito. Serve.
