Buffalo Tofu Caesar Wrap


Description

You will never go back to traditional caesar salad after trying this one. The best part about using kale is that it holds up amazingly for leftovers! Vegetarian.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 x 10″ whole grain wraps
  • 1 350g block of tofu, firm (I used Sunrise Soya Organics)
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • ½ cup milk of choice
  • 1 cup whole wheat panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp cajun seasoning (or seasoning of choice)
  • 1 servings of Lindsay’s Famous Kale Ceasar Salad (capers optional and I also mixed in a bit of romaine)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • About ¼  cup of Frank’s Red Hot (or your favorite hot sauce)

Instructions

  1. While you prepare your other ingredients, press your Tofu to get rid of any excess water. To do this. Place a quadruple layered paper towel above and below your block of tofu and place on a dinner plate. Top with a heavy book ( I used a thick cookbook). Leave for about 20 minutes while you prepare your other ingredients, you may need to repeat with fresh paper towel if it soaks all the way through.  
  2. Next prepare your Caesar Salad as the rest will come together quickly once the tofu is ready to be fried.
  3. Set up your breading station in 3 bowls by placing your cornstarch in one, milk in another and panko +cajun spice in the last one. Line them up and get ready to dip!
  4. Remove your pressed tofu and cut into strips, about 1 cm thick (you will get 14-16 strips).
  5. Dip each piece in cornstarch, followed by milk and then the panko mixture and set aside. Repeat until all pieces are coated.
  6. Heat your oil in a large skillet over medium high heat and fry your tofu in a single layer until nice and golden brown, about 3-4 minutes on each side.
  7. Remove and place on a paper towel to soak up any extra oil. Next, start layering your wraps with your salad, tofu and then finally, your hot sauce.
  8. Fold in the top and bottom ends of your wrap and roll up like a burrito, eat as is or cut in half and enjoy!
