Vegan Spiced Tofu Wraps with Pesto Avocado Cream

0 comments

These Vegan Spiced Tofu Wraps with Pesto Avocado Cream are the perfect packed lunch or quick weeknight dinner recipe! Pan-fried lightly spiced tofu wrapped up with red onion, kale and a delicious homemade avocado cream sauce! This super green and colourful wrap is super easy to make, healthy and most importantly, delicious!

This recipe is filled with delicious fresh ingredients, and packed with protein. You can use whatever wraps you like, and also your favourite fillings. I like onions and kale to keep it simple, but use any of your favourite ingredients like mixed greens, tomatoes, olives, pickles, bell peppers… the list could go on! That’s the best thing about wraps, you can customize them super easily to your liking.

The pesto avocado cream sauce is not only fresh and delicious but packed with protein thanks to silken tofu! Silken tofu is such a great hack for people who loooove creamy things and want to add protein to meals. Blend it into soups, pasta sauces and cream sauces (like this one) to add a delicious creaminess and punch of protein. The rest of the pesto avocado cream sauce is avocado, lemon juice, garlic, basil and some salt and pepper.
