Asian Tofu Wrap

I had been craving a tofu wrap for weeks and I finally got a chance to make one the other day. I wanted to share this simple recipe with you. It is based off of from a recipe from Chew Bite. Here’s the ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 orange bell pepper
  • 1 cup carrots
  • 6 scallions
  • 1 can chopped water chestnuts
  • 1 package of extra firm tofu, pressed and sliced
  • tamari or soy sauce to taste
  • white cooking wine
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • chili oil, to taste
  • boston lettuce
  • whole grain tortilla wraps
  • s + p

First, I pressed the tofu and baked it in the oven with some soy sauce, making sure to cook evenly on both sides. Then, I added the garlic, ginger, pepper, chestnuts, carrots, olive oil, sesame oil, tamari and cooking wine to a pan and began sautéing. Add as much of the tamari and cooking wine as you would like to coat the vegetables. Add chili oil to taste. Once the veggies are done cooking, stir in the scallions and the cilantro. Next, pile the veggie mixture, lettuce and the slices of tofu onto a wrap. Add sesame seeds or more tamari if you’d like.

This turned out tasty! It was pretty easy to make and is a great way to use up some veggies that I had in the fridge. Give it a try!

  1. Wow your tofu wrap looks really delicious. I love the color of your stir fry. It sounds delightful:)

  2. Thank you, Tes! I just had some leftovers too—its even good heated up!

  3. Yum! I think shiitake mushrooms would be a good addition to the mix, too. Wonder if it would work as a lettuce wrap?

  4. Hi Ailanna!

    Yes! This recipe was originally one that used lettuce wraps, but I decided to use tortillas as well to help make it a filling meal. Good idea on the shitake mushrooms – next time I make this I will have to try adding the mushrooms! Thank you for your comment:)
