Vegan frozen burritos are my jam. There, I said it.
Jen is a literal artist in the kitchen. I, however, have zero cooking skills and that’s why I love frozen burritos. They’re super easy to make, cheap, and generally really good sources of protein. They’re also easy to take to work and heat up for a simple lunch.
Finding vegan frozen burritos, though, isn’t nearly as easy as their non-vegan counterparts.
VeggL is here to put an end to that. We have compiled the ultimate list of vegan frozen burritos.
Use our table below as a resource to find new vegan frozen burrito options that you may not be aware of yet. Use it as a reference to double-check what burritos are or are not vegan. We don’t care how you use it, we just hope you find it helpful.
We’ve included each brand we’ve found that has a vegan frozen burrito option. Then we list each variety, or “flavor”, of burrito that is vegan. Remember, not all of these brands will be 100% vegan companies so some will have vegan offerings, as well as, vegetarian and non-vegetarian options as well.
We also include everything from vegan certified (which we notate in the list) to ‘accidentally’ vegan. As long as it doesn’t contain animal products, we list it. Finally, we include a couple of other pieces of information that most of us want to know. Is the burrito Non-GMO and where can you buy them?

*These burritos don’t carry the vegan certified stamp, but they are all specifically labeled vegan on the wrapper
While we have not listed any of these vegan burrito brands in any sort of order, I do have to mention that with the Higher Taste vegan burritos, these truly are the best tasting of the bunch that we have tried.
Higher Taste is a vegan & vegetarian company out of Oregon so unless you are in the northwest of the United States, you may not be able to find them. Hopefully, we will be seeing them across the country… if we’re lucky!
We were able to try all 3 frozen burritos; Vegan Bean and Cheese, Fiesta Fajita, and their Vegan Breakfast Burrito. All of these are labeled as vegan, made in Oregon, and made with love.
The Bean and Cheese shocked us with its cheesiness. And the cheesiness doesn’t even taste “vegan.” Jen had to double-check what the ingredients were. The Fiesta Fajita was a perfect blend of sweet & spicy and with the soy curls being the “meat” base, it almost had a shredded bbq texture and taste. This one was our favorite.
The Breakfast Burrito was interesting. The initial taste was potatoes, then sausage flavors with cheese and a black pepper finish. The potatoes are small chunks but also taste like they’re mixed well into the tofu. There is no vegan sausage so they must use spices that give you that taste. This one is the heartiest of all three at 450 calories for a burrito and 21g of protein.
You cannot go wrong with any of these.
365 Everyday Value
365 Everyday Value is Whole Foods in house brand. They offer an enormous variety of products including frozen burritos. One of those frozen burritos, the Bean & Rice Burrito, is vegan.
It’s a solid burrito, but nothing special. If I’m being honest, there are a bunch of burritos on this list that is going to beat the 365 bean burrito when it comes to taste. Where this burrito shines though, is the price.
At my local Whole Foods you can almost always pick these burritos up for about two bucks. That’s a pretty amazing value that you can get every day (pun totally intended).
Alpha Foods is one of the newer brands on the vegan landscape. They came on the scene in 2015 and make a variety of vegan products, primarily meat alternatives, burritos, and pizzas. Pretty much all items that are going to be found in the freezer section.
They are a 100% plant-based company and are Non-GMO. They offer five different flavors of what they call ‘All Day Burritos’ and two different versions of Breakfast Burrito. Each of their burritos contains a good amount of plant-based protein – about 10g or 11g depending on the flavor.
Alpha Foods sets itself apart from everyone else with its unique flavors, including Philly, Pizza, and Chik’N Fajita.
Daiya, well known for its wide variety of vegan dairy products, now has its own line of burritos. They offer six different varieties of burrito, all gluten, soy, and dairy-free. With everything from two different styles of breakfast burrito to Mexican and Italian flavors, you’re almost certain to find something to fit your taste buds.
Sweet Earth Foods
Sweet Earth Foods, like Amy’s Kitchen, has a very robust product line. In addition to frozen burritos, they also offer other products like pizza, plant-based burgers and plant-based deli slices. They’re also not a completely vegan company, they make both vegan and vegetarian items.
Their Big Sur Burrito used to be my absolute favorite frozen burrito, but they reformulated the recipe a few months back. I still like the Big Sur, it’s just not as good as it used to be.
Trader Joes, why aren’t you closer to our house!?! Our closest Trader Joes is about a 30 minute drive away, which doesn’t sound bad except we have 3 different grocery stores within 5 minutes of us.
So, we don’t go nearly as much as we used to, but oh boy, these vegan burritos were a “must get” every time we made a trip. These and the Vegetable Spring Rolls. Yes, please!
Known best (at least in our house) for their no-cheese pizzas, Amy’s Kitchen is one of the most popular vegan-friendly freezer section brands. Amy’s isn’t a completely vegan company; they also offer many vegetarian options.
However, everything with Amy’s is clearly labeled so their is no confusion as to what is non-dairy. Their vegan burritos carry the Vegan Certified stamp.
Also, while Amy’s burritos aren’t officially labeled organic, if you look at the ingredients, pretty much every ingredient is organic.
Amy’s offers six different varieties of plant based burritos. They also offer a few more frozen ‘wraps’, which are pretty dang close to a burrito, but we’ll leave them off here for now.
My two favorites from Amy’s are the Bean and Rice and the Classic Breakfast.
The Bean and Rice burrito is simple but well-executed. It consists of organic pinto beans, brown rice, veggies and a Mexican style sauce. The Breakfast Burrito is made of organic potatoes, tofu, black beans, veggies and salsa. Easily one of my favorite grab and go breakfast options.
