Black Bean Egg Burritos - ju

A batch of these whole-grain burritos in the freezer will serve you well on busy mornings. They’re wrapped in parchment paper before they’re frozen, so all you have to do is pull one out and warm it (still in its wrapping) in the microwave for about 3 minutes—and voila, you have a hot, cheesy, filling breakfast that’s good to take on the go. A little bit of Greek yogurt is whisked into the eggs before they’re scrambled to keep them moist and tender, even after being frozen and reheated.
