  • ½ cup feta cheese crumbled
  • 1 ¼ cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 5 large flour tortillas 10-12 inches

  • Sauté kale- Add the kale and cook for 2 more minutes, until soft and the kale is wilted. If kale is frozen, add it straight to the pan without thawing, increasing the cook time if needed.

  • Add eggs- While the veggies are cooking, beat the eggs with the salt, pepper, and oregano. Add the eggs to the pan and cook for 3-4 more minutes, until the eggs are cooked through.

Notes

1-  you can use fresh or frozen kale; if using frozen, add it to the pan without thawing and increase the cook time as needed.
 
2- you can use your favorite type of mushrooms; cremini, button or chopped portobellos are all great options
 
Storage
  • fridge- store individually wrapped burritos in an air tight container for up to 48 hours; the tortillas can get soft and are best frozen for longer than that
  • freezer- store individually wrapped burritos in an air tight container or freezer bag for up to 3 months
 
Variations:
  • kale- swap for spinach or your favorite greens
  • other veggies- swap onions & mushrooms for sautéed bell peppers, cauliflower rice, roasted sweet potatoes or what you happen to have in the fridge.
  • eggs- you can make this vegetarian by swapping the eggs for tofu (follow directions for this tofu scramble)
  • feta- omit, but add at least ¼ teaspoon salt
  • other- you could turn these into breakfast quesadillas, or leave out the tortilla and enjoy as a breakfast scramble.
