I make 10 of these at a time and freeze -- two weeks' worth of healthy breakfasts! Reheat in the oven while you get ready in the morning. I make 10 of these at a time and freeze -- two weeks' worth of healthy breakfasts! Reheat in the oven while you get ready in the morning.
Number of Servings: 10


    Kale, 4 cups, cleaned and chopped
    1 T olive oil
    1 clove garlic, minced
    10 Whole Wheat Tortillas (I used Trader Joe's)
    7 eggs, scrambled
    1 cup Rosarita Spicy Jalapeno refried beans
    7 oz fontina cheese, shredded
    1 cup salsa
    Salt and pepper to taste


You could easily vary the veggie used in this; I'm planning broccoli ones next, or maybe spinach!


-Add the oil to a large nonstick skillet on medium. When the oil is hot, add the garlic and saute for a minute or two, but don't let the garlic burn.
-Add the kale handfuls at a time, turning with tongs to distribute the oil and garlic.
-Once all the kale is in, put the lid on and cook for 10-15 minutes until it is as tender as you like. -Remove kale from skillet into a bowl.
-In the same skillet, add the scrambled eggs and salt and pepper to taste, and cook slowly over medium-low heat. You want these to be soft, because they will cook a little more when you reheat them in the oven.
-Add the eggs to the reserved kale and mix gently.
-Bring the kale mixture to your work area and set up burrito assembly line: tear off 10 sheets of tinfoil (each big enough to wrap a burrito) and place next to a large baking sheet on your counter. Have the tortillas, beans, cheese, and salsa handy, ideally near the microwave.
-Heat the tortillas one by one in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds until warm and soft (don't do them all at once; if they cool they will become tough they will tear.)
-Working quickly, spoon a little less than 2 Tbsp refried beans across the center of the tortilla.
-Add a spoonful of the egg and kale mixture.
-Add about 3/4 oz cheese and a little salsa.
-Fold from the bottom up, then fold the sides in and roll up.
-Place, seam-side down, on the stack of foil sheets and roll up in a sheet of foil.
-Place the burrito on the sheet pan.
-Repeat for remaining ingredients.
-Freeze the whole pan of burritos, and, once frozen hard, transfer to a large ziploc freezer bag.
-To reheat, turn oven to 300 and place a frozen burrito on a lined baking sheet. It will take about 40 minutes to heat fully but it can stay in there longer if it takes you longer to get ready in the morning!
