Smoked Tofu and Fruit Wraps with Chipotle Cream


    Smoked Tofu and Fruit Wraps with Chipotle Cream

    This easy and nutritious wrap showcases smoked tofu, along with a spicy silken tofu spread, in an explosion of flavours that will light up your lunchtime.


    1/4 cup (60 mL) reduced-fat vegan mayonnaise
    4 oz (115 g) extra-firm light silken tofu
    1/2 small garlic clove, crushed
    1/8 to 1/4 tsp (0.5 to 1 mL) chipotle chili powder
    4 large whole wheat or sprouted wheat tortilla wraps
    1/4 to 1/2 cup (60 to 125 mL) fruit chutney (optional)
    3 cups (750 mL) baby salad greens
    8 oz (225 g) smoked tofu, thinly sliced and cut into slivers
    2 cups (500 mL) fresh cantaloupe, peach, nectarine, or mango, thinly sliced

    To make Chipotle Cream purée mayonnaise, tofu, garlic, and chipotle powder until very smooth in blender or with stick/immersion blender. Refrigerate in covered jar until ready to use.

    When ready to fill wraps, toast each tortilla on one side only in heavy, dry skillet over high heat for a few seconds, just to soften. Remove immediately and toast next tortilla. It takes only a couple of minutes to toast all 4 tortillas.

    Spread the untoasted side of each tortilla, almost to edges, with about 3 Tbsp (45 mL) chipotle cream. If using optional chutney, also spread with 1 to 2 Tbsp (15 to 30 mL).

    Evenly divide salad greens, slivered smoked tofu, and fruit slices evenly between 4 tortillas, piling them down centre of wrap, leaving about 2 in (5 cm) uncovered on end closest to you. Fold up that end and fold over sides firmly to make a roll that is closed on the bottom and open on top.

    Cut roll in half diagonally. You’ll need plenty of napkins!

    Serves 4.

    This Asian-inspired stir-fry takes full advantage of the crunch Brussels sprouts achieve when they’re heated quickly. The sweet-and-sour sauce delivers a tangy edge, and tempeh offers plant-based protein and a blast of umami. If you want meat in the dish, you can replace tempeh with ground pork. Ready, set, go Stir-frying is a cooking method that thrives on speed. That means you want to have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go into the pan. That also means no chopping on the fly.
