Description

These simple Rainbow Veggie Wraps are vegan, gluten-free, and easy to make! This recipe is made up of 10 ingredients and makes 6 – 8 servings.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 (14 – 16 oz.) Package Firm or Extra Firm Tofu, drained
  • 3 Tbsp. Tamari/Dark Soy Sauce (gluten-free if preferred)
  • 12 Tsp. Avocado Oil*
  • Hummus
  • Crushed Red Pepper Flakes or Sriracha (optional)
  • 2 Medium Tomatoes, sliced
  • 2 Large Carrots, shredded or thinly sliced into strips
  • 1 Yellow Bell Pepper, thinly sliced into strips
  • Lettuce/Sprouts
  • Purple Cabbage, Shredded or Purple Sauerkraut**
  • Burrito Tortillas (gluten-free if preferred)

Instructions

Prepare the tofu:

  1. Turn the tofu block so that the widest part is horizontal and laying flat on the cutting board. Cut the tofu into long, thin rectangular pieces (approximately 6 – 8 pieces). Place the tofu between clean kitchen towels or paper towels and press for 10 – 15 minutes.
  2. After pressing, cut the rectangular pieces of tofu in half. The tofu pieces should still be long rectangular strips but you should now have a total of 12 – 24 pieces.
  3. Add the tofu to a plate and evenly drizzle with the tamari/soy sauce. Let the tofu soak for 5 minutes, rotating often.
  4. Place a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and add oil. Add the tofu and cook for 1 – 3 minutes on each side until slightly crispy.
  5. When the tofu is done cooking on all sides, remove it from the pan and place it on a plate to cool.

Put it all together:

  1. Add hummus to a large burrito tortilla. Sprinkle crushed red pepper flakes or add a drizzle of sriracha if desired.
  2. Add tomato slices, shredded carrot/thin carrot strips, bell pepper strips, lettuce/sprouts, shredded purple cabbage/sauerkraut, and 2 – 4 tofu strips.
  3. Fold the sides of the tortilla inward and roll closed from the bottom into a tight wrap. You can also roll the wrap in parchment paper if you prefer. Cut in half and serve.
  4. Store any leftover veggies and tofu strips in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week. I do not recommend making several veggie wraps at once and storing in the fridge because they will get soggy and go bad very quickly. Instead, simply put all ingredients together in a tortilla and wrap it up the day that you intend on eating it.

Notes

*Avocado Oil Substitution: You can use vegetable, canola, grapeseed, or olive oil in place of avocado oil if you prefer.

**Sauerkraut: I used a small amount of sauerkraut when making these veggie wraps, but if you are not a fan of sauerkraut, then I would recommend using shredded purple cabbage instead. Sauerkraut has a very strong taste so if you’re not sure if you would like it, it’s best to use shredded purple cabbage.
