Ravishing Rainbow Veggie Wraps (Vegan)

IMG_9036.JPG

Hello and happy long weekend to my Canadian friends! I couldn’t be happier to have three full days away from work: all the more time to create new recipes and fit in the first couple runs of my marathon training plan.

I will eat almost any combination of foods wrapped up in a soft, floury tortilla. It’s the ultimate comfort food and oh so versatile. I have been known to eat some version of this wrap recipe several days in a row; I just never tire of it! There are so many flavours and textures at play here, and I have a feeling you are going to love it. Better yet, this recipe doesn’t require you to turn on the oven once. It’s basically the perfect summer meal! I’m counting on it to fuel me through this long, hot summer of marathon training.

This tofu is guaranteed to turn any tofu hater into a lover! Nobody can resist the sweet, salty, and mildly spicy flavour of this dish. It is also incredibly versatile, and works well as a filling in wraps, a topping for bowls, and on its own as a tasty, protein-rich snack!

VEGAN
Gluten-Free

Servings: 4
Time: 30 minutes marinating + 15 minutes cooking

3 tbsp tamari
2 tbsp pure maple syrup
2 tbsp sriracha (I like Simply Natural brand organic sriracha)
1 block (350 g) extra firm organic tofu, diced into 1-inch cubes
1 tbsp virgin coconut oil

Directions:Β 

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together tamari, maple syrup, and sriracha.
  2. Add tofu and toss to combine.
  3. Allow tofu to marinate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 8 hours, if possible.
  4. In a large skillet (preferably cast iron), heat coconut oil over medium heat. Once hot, add the tofu.
  5. Cook tofu for about five minutes, then carefully flip and cook for five minutes on the other side.
  6. Continue cooking the tofu until most of the marinade has caramelized and the tofu itself is crispy.
  7. Remove from heat and enjoy in wraps, on bowls, or as part of a plate with roasted sweet potato, greens, and sauce. The sky really is the limit with this tofu.

 

Salted Caramel Frappuccino Smoothie

Happy Monday, friends! A heat wave is about to sweep over Ontario, so I’m dropping in with a morning wake-up call that is frosty, energizing, and packed with nutrients. Hopefully you can enjoy it as much as me over the coming days, weeks, and months! I’ve had to take a few days off from running due to a calf strain and am feeling pretty antsy without my favourite form of activity, but I’m trying to look at it as an exercise in patience and mindfulness. :/
