Directions

  • Marinade tofu for 1 hour in soy sauce, sesame oil, and vinegar.
  • Heat up frying pan and place marinated tofu on it to warm, flipping every so often for even cooking.

  • Place 1/5 of each: tofu, carrot, beets, avocado, onion, sesame seeds, and cilantro onto the middle of the prepared wrap.

  • Pair with your favourite dipping sauce. I served mine with a sweet chill sauce and a peanut sauce.
