Breakfast Burrito

Above: Almost the same thing as our own beautiful breakfast burrito, minus the sauce and and scattered lettuce

The first thing that comes to mind when I hear "Breakfast Burrito" is a certain Mexican fast food chain - heaven forbid we should attempt to follow in the trail they've blazed so gloriously before us, so we're chasing a new and radical dream: The unprocessed, filler-free, steroid-free, hormone-free, preservative-free vegetarian breakfast burrito! (*cue 'Chariots of Fire' theme*)

Actually, I can't say 'we', because it's entirely my husband's creation, and it's fabulous, so here it is (the recipe serves 3):

Filling Ingredients:
- 2 tbsp oil (or butter if preferred)
- 2 cloves garlic (diced)
- 1/4 onion (diced)
- 2 tbsp plain yogurt
- 3 eggs
- 1/4 tsp crushed peppers
- 1/4 tsp basil
- 1/4 tsp dill
- 1/4 tsp oregano
- a dash of ginger powder (optional)
- 2 tbsp tomato (diced)
- salt & pepper
- your choice of cheese (optional)

Other Ingredients:
- 3 soft tortillas
- sour cream
- salsa

- in a bowl whisk eggs, yogurt, and spices
- fry onions and garlic in oil until lightly brown; lightly salt and pepper (to taste)
- add egg mixture into the frying pan on top of garlic and onions and scramble
- add tomatoes, cover, and keep on low heat until eggs are cooked

- lightly moisten each tortilla with water and warm in microwave for 20-30 seconds until soft
- spread a light layer of sour cream and salsa onto burrito, then add scrambled eggs
- roll burrito
