Description

These Crunch Asian Peanut Tofu Wraps are packed with veggies, tofu and a delicious and flavorful homemade peanut sauce!


Ingredients

  • 1 (14 oz) package extra firm tofu, water drained and pressed out
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup tamari, or soy sauce (I like to use low sodium)
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh grated garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • 12 teaspoons olive oil, or oil of your choice
  • 2 cups shredded purple cabbage
  • 2 cups shredded green cabbage, or Napa cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded carrot
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red pepper
  • 1/3 cup cilantro leaves
  • 1/3 cup sliced green onion
  • 1 cup chow mein noodles, optional but gives a good crunch!
  • 46 large tortillas, whatever kind you like

Peanut Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon tamari, or soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure maple syrup, or honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • 1 pinch salt
  • If you like it spicy you can add a few squirts of Sriracha or your favorite hot sauce.

Instructions

  1. Cut the tofu into thin strips, about the size of your thumb.  Add the tamari, water, grated ginger and garlic to a medium sized bowl or plastic bag and combine.  Next, add the tofu and make sure it is all coated with the marinade.  Let tofu sit for 15-30 minutes.
  2. Heat a large pan over medium heat and add olive oil and the tofu.  If you like you can pour a little bit of the marinade over it.  Cook until each side of tofu is browned and crispy, 10-12 minutes.
  3. Add all veggies to a large bowl and mix until combined.
  4. Add all dressing ingredients to a jar or small bowl and whisk until combined.
  5. If your wraps aren’t very flexible you might want to heat it a little bit before assembling.  To each wrap add 3-4 strips of tofu, a big handful of the veggie mixture and about 2 tablespoons chow mien noodles.  Drizzle over desired amount of peanut sauce and roll up your wrap and enjoy!
