Directions:

  • 1To make sour cream, place all ingredients into a high speed blender and process until smooth. Chill until needed.
  • 2To make salsa, place a cast iron pan over high heat, add the corn kernels and roast until slightly charred and blackened, about 7-8 minutes.
  • 3Place the charred corn into a bowl with the remaining salsa ingredients and toss to combine. Set aside half of the salsa to put inside the burritos, reserving the other half for topping.
  • 4Finally, for the chipotle tofu scramble, place the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the turmeric, cumin, tofu and garlic and fry together for 1-2 minutes. Add the chilli, adobo sauce, spinach and water and cook, stirring, until the water evaporates and the spinach has wilted through.
  • 5To build your burritos, place a warmed tortilla on a plate, spoon on some of the scrambled tofu and some corn salsa, then fold one side over the filling, roll and wrap to close.
  • 6Top them with sour cream, more salsa, avocado slices, reserved jalapeño slices, and coriander leaves; serve with a slice of lime on the side.
  • 7Pat yourself on the back — this is a multi-layered accomplishment!

*Tip: To drain tofu, place on top of a few paper towels, place more paper towels on top, and weight down with a heavy plate to drain /squeeze out the water.
**To warm tortillas, preheat oven to 180°C, wrap the tortillas in aluminium foil, place in the oven and heat for 9-10 minutes or until warmed through.
