Vegan Breakfast Burrito

This Vegan Breakfast Burrito is all you need in the morning. I'll attribute that to the inclusion of plenty of pepperjack cheese from Daiya. Any vegan cheese can be used though...

Daiya Pepperjack..

New. I'm a sucker for new products. A new flavor of coconut water, a new flavor of soy ice cream, new this, new that - I'll buy it just to try it. And sometimes a new flavor can be quite disappointing. Leaving you spending money on something only to find out you don't like the "new" version! Example, those plastic bottled coconut water flavors (pomberry and such) - tried them all - and I've learned that I like coconut water "as is" - no new flavors needed. But Daiya flavors...

Luckily, with the new Daiya Cheese pepperjack flavor I was quite pleased. So yummy! In fact, Pepperjack my new fave Daiya flavor.

Breakfast Burrito. Then this morning I did the best breakfast burrito I have ever had. Dive in...
