This is such an easy mid-day snack for any Vegan food lover. I like to make extra of the tofu so I can assemble these anytime I want. Get your lunchboxes ready and make these Vegan Tofu Caesar wraps for the go. You can make the Vegan Caesar dressing, but I opted to use store-bought Caesar dressing. I like to have all the ingredients prepped and ready to go in the fridge. The tofu freezes well, so if you need to make a large batch and then take them out and use them, feel free! I have seen so many variations of Vegan Tofu wWaps, but this one is my favorite.

What is a Vegan Tofu Wrap?

It can be made with a variety of different fillings, but common ingredients include vegetables, such as lettuce, cucumber, carrots, and bell peppers, and a flavorful sauce or dressing, such as hummus or tahini. Tofu is a popular ingredient in vegan and vegetarian cuisine because it is a good source of protein, and it can be seasoned and cooked in a variety of different ways to create different flavors and textures.

How to make Vegan Tofu Wraps
Cut the tofu into large chunks and add them to a bowl. Toss in the olive oil, hot sauce, garlic powder, paprika, and starch. Toss until the tofu is evenly coated.
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with avocado oil. Spread the tofu evenly across the baking sheet and bake for about 30 minutes, flipping halfway through, until lightly golden.
Fill each wrap with the baked tofu, top with the pico de gallo, lettuce, quinoa, and dressing.
Wrap the tortillas around the filling like a burrito and enjoy right away.
Tofu: I like to get the “extra-firm” tofu in general. This makes it crispier and tastier in my opinion. Make sure to “press” the tofu, which means to get all the excess liquid out. I do this by placing paper towels around it and laying something heavy on it for at least 30 minutes.
Seasoning: I love using garlic and onion powder for this recipe. If you want something spicier, you could always add chili powder or paprika.
Tortillas: I like using flour tortillas for fajitas for a nice tex mex touch, although you can use corn tortillas instead. I have seen new corn and flour tortilla combinations as well.
Olive oil: I love using olive oil for this recipe, although you can always use another oil like vegetable or sunflower oil. You could even use melted butter as the glue.
Lettuce: I have always preferred iceberg lettuce, but I think romaine or arugula would be great as well.

How to store Vegan Tofu Wraps

Vegan Tofu Wraps Top tips
- Press the tofu: Press the tofu before using it to remove any excess water. This will help the tofu to absorb the marinade better and result in a firmer texture.
- Use fresh vegetables: Use fresh and crunchy vegetables, such as lettuce, cucumber, and carrots, to add texture and flavor to your tofu wraps.
- Add a sauce or dressing: A delicious sauce or dressing can take your tofu wraps to the next level. Try a vegan caesar, vegan ranch, tahini sauce, or peanut sauce, or make your own using your favorite ingredients.
- Warm the wrap: To make your wrap easier to roll and to enhance its flavor and texture, you can warm the wrap in a skillet or microwave for a few seconds before assembling.
- Get creative with the filling: You can get creative with the filling and use different ingredients and flavors to make your tofu wraps unique. Try adding different types of vegetables, fresh herbs, or vegan cheese to your wraps.
- Use a toothpick or wrap holder: To keep the wrap together and prevent it from falling apart, you can use a toothpick or wrap holder to hold it in place.
