1 cup (180g) tofu, sliced thinly

1 onion, chopped

1 garlic clove, minced

1 tsp crushed red pepper

1 tsp coriander, ground

1 tsp cumin, ground

1 tsp mint, dry

1 tsp basil, dry

1 Tbsp tomato paste

2-3 Tbsp olive oil

2 tortillas

1 cup spinach

1 cup lettuce, chopped

1 cucumber, chopped

1 tomato chopped

roasted red peppers (optional)

a handful of olives, pitted, chopped

1 spicy avocado sauce


Press the tofu, so that you get rid of as much liquid as you can. Then thinly slice the tofu, add it to a large non-stick pan with 2 tbsp of olive oil and cook at medium-high heat. Stir occasionally until the tofu has a golden-brown color on each side, this took me around 7-8 minutes.

Add the chopped onion, minced garlic and spices. Add in one more tbsp of olive oil and stir in the tomato paste, until the tofu is covered with the spices and tomato sauce. Turn the heat off.

Arranging the wraps: In a tortilla start with spinach, lettuce, a few generous tbsp of the tofu you made, add some cucumber, tomatoes, olives and finish with the spicy avocado sauce. Wrap it up, slice in the middle and enjoy immediately!

Now that you’ve beaten your tofu to death, it’s time to wrap it in a tortilla with some fresh and healthy stuff:

•use your favorite vegetables – I used some spinach, roasted red peppers, olives, lettuce, cucumber and tomatoes

•add this avocado sauce that makes me want to cry tears of joy

•slap some cashew garlic sauce on top of it all




Avocado Sauce


•1 avocado, ripe

•1 tbsp lemon juice

•1 garlic clove, minced

•2 Tbsp cilantro, chopped

•1/2 tsp crushed red pepper (or more)

•salt to taste


1Using a fork mash avocado with lemon juice and garlic until creamy and fluffy. Add in the chopped cilantro, crushed red pepper. Add salt and pepper to taste. You can also make this sauce by using a hand blender or a food processor, but I was too lazy to clean all that up, so I used a fork and the force.

2You can use this sauce in wraps, burgers, bowls or on the side with meat, rice, or even tofu. (I used it in these tofu wraps).
