Like it or not, back to school time is almost here. If you don't like it, then I've got a recipe that will make everything alright. And if you do like it then this recipe is only going to make back to school time even better! Get your lunchboxes ready by making these Vegan Tofu Caesar Wraps. You can make the tofu and dressing ahead of time so these wraps can be super quick to prepare, perfect for bringing to work, school, for an easy lunch or weeknight meal.
Oh yeah, look at that gorgeous seasoned tofu and that creamy Caesar sauce.
This sandwich is made using my all-time favourite Baked Tofu Bites (is there anything these tofu bites can't do)? I also use these bites in my hearty vegan tofu salad sandwich if you want another take on tofu sandwich deliciousness.
The Caesar dressing takes less than 5 minutes to make and can also be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge. Then it's just a matter of adding veg and rolling them up. Prepare for crunchy, chewy, savoury, saucy, Ceasar-y deliciousness.
To make vegan tofu Caesar wraps:
Make my recipe for Baked Tofu Bites. You will only need to make ½ of the recipe to make these sandwiches which is equivalent to one block of tofu. But let me tell you that I never ever regret making extra tofu bites as they can be used everywhere- if they survive me eating most of them directly from the pan!
These bites can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge until ready to use.
Next, make the Caesar dressing. Simply add the ingredients to a small bowl or jar and combine. This too can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge until ready to assemble the wraps.
For an oil-free version: Instead of the vegan mayonnaise-based Caesar dressing I have listed in this recipe use my Creamy Cashew Caesar Salad Dressing which is oil-free. If you make it ahead of time it will thicken up more in the fridge.
Then when ready to assemble the sandwiches, fill a wrap with tofu bites, chopped romaine lettuce, chopped tomatoes, and the Caesar dressing. You can also add any additional veggies or toppings you like. Then roll it up like a burrito and enjoy your tofu Caesar wrap fresh, or pack it for lunch for later.
If taking for lunch, I like to have all the ingredients prepped and ready to go in the fridge, then I assemble mine in the morning so that it stays fresh and doesn't get soggy. Roll up the wrap and then roll in wax paper, twisting the ends closed to seal it in. Pop it in your lunch bag and you're good to go.
