As a part of Vegan MoFo I decided to dedicate my Tuesday posts to easy weeknight recipes. We can't be fancy all the time, so these recipes are quick to put together!
Starting us off right we have these delicious caesar salad wraps with tofu. Ok, so it may look like there are a lot of ingredients, but you could make the dressing ahead of time and make these wraps quickly throughout the week.
Feel free to add in whatever other vegetables you like. I think next time mine will have some tomatoes added in. These were great as leftovers too (just don't add the salad dressing on until you are ready to eat)!
Caesar Salad Tofu Wraps
4-6 large tortillas or wraps
1 head of broccoli, chopped into spears
1 large head romaine lettuce, torn into bite sized pieces
Caesar Dressing (recipe follows)
Baked Tofu (recipe follows)
optional: veggie bacon bits, vegan parmesan
Steam the broccoli spears until tender. Toss the caesar dressing with the lettuce and broccoli.
Add some of the salad to the center of you wrap and top with a few tofu pieces. Wrap and enjoy!
1 block extra firm tofu, pressed and cut into cubes
3 Tbsp cashew or other nut butter
1-2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp rice vinegar
1 Tbsp sesame oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 C panko breadcrumbs
1/4 C nutritional yeast
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 375 F.
Whisk together the cashew butter, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil and garlic. Add the tofu cubes and toss to coat. Let marinate for as much time as you have.
Mix together the panko crumbs, nutritional yeast, garlic powder and salt in another small bowl. Press the tofu cubes into this mixture to get a crumb coating, then place on a foil lined cookie sheet. Bake Tofu for 15 minutes or until crispy.
2 Tbsp cashew butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 Tbsp dijon mustard
3 Tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
2 Tbsp soy sauce
3 Tbsp lemon juice
1/4 C water
1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
Add all ingredients to a food processor and mix until well blended.
I have to say that this caesar dressing tasted pretty close to the "real thing" from what I remember. This was a great light meal! Of course it would be great just as a salad too.
Do you ever put salads into wraps? I just love the portability.
Thanks for stopping by!
