  • ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup onion chopped into small pieces (½ small onion)
  • 1 cup chopped zucchini
  • 1 bell pepper chopped into small pieces
  • 1 cup canned lentils drained and rinsed (I used brown)
  • 6 eggs
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • 2 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 6 12 " tortillas


  • Heat oil over medium heat. Add the onion to the pan and cook for 5 or so minutes until soft and translucent.
  • Add the zucchini and bell pepper to the pan, and cook for 5 or so more minutes, until soft and cooked through.
  • While veggies are cooking, beat the eggs with the salt, pepper, and oregano.
  • Add the eggs and the lentils to the pan and cook for 3-4 more minutes, until eggs are cooked through.

Assemble the burritos

  • Spread out ½ cup of the *cooled* egg/veggie filling onto a 12-inch flour tortilla. Sprinkle with ⅓ cup of cheese.
  • Roll up as shown in photos and wrap with plastic wrap until you're ready to serve!

To freeze:

  • Wrap tightly in plastic wrap, then place in a large ziplock bag.
  • If you are storing for longer than 1-2 weeks, you may wish to wrap with aluminum foil as well.

To thaw:

  • You can either thaw in the fridge overnight, or microwave on a paper towel for 30 seconds/side.
  • I recommend crisping them up on a George Foreman Grill or in a frying pan.
