If your breakfast routine could use a few new highlights, try this nutritious morning twist on a dinner classic – the breakfast enchilada. This vegetarian meal doesn’t skimp on the protein; with eggs and lentils, you’ll have the energy you need to power through your day.

Poblano Mac and Cheese

What’s better than bubbling hot cheese and a little spice on a chilly evening? This vegetarian mac and cheese brings the heat with poblano peppers added to the delicious cheese sauce – and you can customize the level of spice to please even the pickiest crowd. After cooking the pasta and roasting your poblano pepper under the broiler (so fun!), whisk up a cheese sauce and then put everything into a baking dish for the crunchy topping: our Thin & Crispy Tortilla Chips. You can also sub-in our Mission Organics Blue Corn Tortilla Chips to add a bit of extra flavor! You’ll want to keep this dish on rotation all season long.

Portobello Mushroom Quesadillas

For a quick and hearty recipe for vegetarians, look no further than these portobello mushroom quesadillas. Perfect for lunch or dinner, the rich and nutritious mushroom combined with two kinds of cheese is a great way to get a filling vegetarian dish. Use our Organic White Corn Tortillas and crisp them up in a hot skillet to add some crunch to your meal. A little bit of rosemary sprinkled inside adds a fun burst of flavor, too!

Thai Tofu Tacos

Are you feeling a bit adventurous and looking for a fun new vegetarian recipe to throw in the mix? This Thai-inspired twist on Taco Tuesday will quickly become a favorite due to its flavor combinations and easy prep (just make sure to let your red onions sit and pickle for an hour or so before you’re ready to eat). After you’ve made a red curry and coconut milk sauce, let your tofu simmer in the mixture for a while to absorb the flavor, then scoop into our Street Tacos Flour Tortillas – the perfect size for eating two, or three, or four! Finish with your favorite delicious toppings (like those pickled onions you made earlier!) and enjoy. It’s like traveling the world from the comfort of your cozy kitchen.

Veggie Enchiladas

For a healthier spin on a longtime classic, these vegetarian enchiladas combine beans, vegetables, goat cheese, and a whole lot of flavor with our Gluten Free Original Tortilla Wraps for a warm meal that you’ll feel good about eating. After starting with a sauce that’s packed with flavor (tomatoes, jalapeños, and herbs, oh my!), the black bean, corn, and goat cheese filling is the perfect compliment to complete this meatless masterpiece. Half an hour later, you’ll have a warm and filling dish straight from the oven that ticks all the boxes – delicious, flavorful, and nutritious!

Perfect for brunch or lunch on the go, the piping hot eggs straight from the pan will warm you up in no time!
