When you’re in need of something satisfying, a vegan burrito is hard to beat.
The problem is, which one to choose? There are so many different recipes online it can become a little confusing, but fear not my plant-loving pals, these are the best burritos on the ‘net (and off it, for that matter!).
Enough talk, let’s get stuck into the first recipe on our list…
Speedy & Spicy Chili Bean Burritos from The Veg Space
Making use of canned refried beans and quick-cooking Mexican rice, this vegan burrito recipe is as fast as it is tasty. With the addition of guacamole, either pre-made or homemade, fresh cherry tomatoes, pickled jalapenos (if you like it spicy) and a sprinkle of cilantro, food blogger Kate has created a recipe that’s fast, easy, and nutritious.

The Ultimate Vegan Protein Burrito from Blissful Basil
Who said that delicious food and healthy food have to be mutually exclusive? This burrito lives up to its name with 22 grams of protein, loads of fiber, healthy fats, and other nutrients your body needs to stay healthy. Winning!
Quinoa takes the place of the traditional rice, kale adds an unexpected twist, and healthy dollops of pico de gallo and homemade guacamole provide a burst of flavor, freshness, and texture.

The Ultimate Vegan Breakfast Burrito from Lauren Caris Cooks
Food blogger Lauren Caris brings us her recipe for a vegan breakfast burrito so good, even meat-eaters will want it in on it! This plant-based burrito definitely proves that you don’t need eggs or other animal products in order to have a satisfying and filling breakfast.
Seitan makes a perfect bacon substitute, and scrambled chickpeas provide a vegan egg substitute that’s as protein-filled as the real thing. A sprinkling of green beans, avocado, tomato, and any other vegetables you want adds freshness and crunch to this wonderful wrap.

Jackfruit Burritos from Discover Delicious
Jackfruit is the vegan answer to pulled pork. This Asian fruit doesn’t have a lot of flavor on its own, but it soaks up sauces and marinades like a dream, and shreds into a texture almost identical to the ever-popular barbecue meat.
Meat eaters won’t even notice the difference, so this is the perfect recipe to serve to a group of mixed vegans and meat-eaters, aid a transition to veganism, or simply mix up a meat-eating diet.
Here, Michael Kitson shreds jackfruit and cooks it in a barbecue sauce, mixing it with Mexican rice, black beans, guacamole, and pico de gallo for a burrito that’s filling, fresh, and tasty.

Cheat Night Vegan Burritos from Eaten by Sam
Sam, of the eponymous blog Eaten by Sam, serves up a vegan burrito recipe that’s so simple to make you won’t believe it tastes as good as it does. And, since it uses a few pre-made ingredients, it’s the perfect healthy recipe for busy weeknights.
So, instead of ordering in, make this healthy, filling, protein- and fiber-filled burrito in half the time. A chipotle cream sauce made with vegan cream really ties the rice, beans, and vegan meat together with its creamy, smoky flavor.

The filling ingredients can be prepped while the sweet potatoes, peppers, and black beans bake, which makes this a quick and easy meal that doesn’t sacrifice nutrition.

This burrito is jam-packed with healthy ingredients, but without going overboard.
A mix of kidney beans, carrot, broccoli, tomatoes, onions, and spinach makes for a veggie-filled burrito that provides loads of vitamins, nutrients, and all-important fiber.
Avocados would be a delicious addition, and Stella (the recipe’s creator) gives you a few extra ingredient ideas you can pile on if you so wish. Stella wraps her filling in whole-wheat tortillas, but she notes that you could wrap them in lettuce instead if you’re avoiding carbs.
