Vegan Tofu Wrap, grilled to perfection is just what you need to have a filling yet healthy lunch. If you follow a vegan diet, then this is just what might be looking for.
Let me be extremely honest with you. I was not a big fan of tofu. It was more of an acquired taste much later. I still do not enjoy eating it bland. You will almost certainly never find it as a bland topping on any of my dishes.
But I have found a way around it and season it well to enjoy. I love experimenting with different flavors and have been making the tofu in really varied ways. One of the recipes of Tofu is already on the blog.
As Tofu is a much healthier option than the red meat, with it’s proteins and fewer calories, I have been trying to include it in our diets as much as possible.
And this Vegan Tofu Wrap is just an ah-maz-ing addition to it. It is pretty easy to make and the lunch box is pretty filling yet healthy for the kids.
I prefer to make the whole wheat tortillas for the Vegan Tofu Wrap as I like to pretty much control the ingredients that go into my family’s tummy.
But if that is not an option for you, then please search for healthier whole-grain tortillas in the market. Hopefully, I will put up a recipe for a healthy tortilla soon on this little blog.
As of now, you can simply enjoy these vegan tofu wrap recipe. The below recipe would yield 4 wraps and each wrap covers approximately 320 kcal. You can add in any of the healthy dressings of your choice.
