Veggie Tofu Wrap With Tahini Miso Sauce
Summer is quickly approaching and the temperature, where I live, is slowly creeping towards 90. As it gets hotter and more humid my tolerance for hot food goes down. When it’s above 90 degrees I often turn to sandwiches, wraps and salads--and this particular wrap is filled with yummy goodness. Also, lettuce is in season and makes a lovely addition to any wrap, sandwich or salad.
For the flat bread of the wrap you can either use large chapatti, flour tortillas or sprouted wheat tortillas. Chapatti are really nice to use in this recipe as they are fresh and wholesome. Sometimes store-bought burrito wraps can be a bit doughy and if you happen to have some leftover chapatti, or are making some fresh, this is a nice way to use them. This wrap can be whipped up quickly and easily so makes a great lunch or picnic dish.
1 16 oz block of tofu drained and sliced into 1/2 inch thick slices
1 tablespoon sesame oil
Splash of soy sauce
4 tablespoons tahini
1 tablespoon miso paste
2 tablespoons soy sauce (adjust to taste)
4-6 tablespoons water (adjust to desired consistency)
Squeeze of wasabi (optional)
4 or 5 chapatti or flour tortillas
1. Place a frying pan on medium heat and let it get hot. Add the sesame oil and coat the bottom of the pan with oil.
2. Place the tofu slices in the pan and fry until golden brown, turning when needed.
3. Add the splash of soy sauce and then turn off the heat mixing the soy sauce until all of the tofu is coated.
4. Add all the sauce ingredients in a blender or I like to use a stick blender and a bowl for easier clean up.
5. Blend until a smooth sauce-like consistency is achieved. If too thick add more water and if too thin add more tahini.
6. Make the wraps by combining a couple strips of tofu, lettuce, tomatoes, olives and some sauce in the middle of a chapatti or tortilla. Fold both sides over and then roll from bottom to top to make a tight wrap.
Feel free to add any combination of veggies or even some feta cheese or whatever else you like. You might find your kids especially like these with a few slices of cheese or some crunchy carrots.
