The Recipe How-To

After gathering all the ingredients, it’s time to get to the fun part- making the dish! Without further ado, here’s how to make these Vegan Marinated Tofu Wraps with Chipotle Mayo:

Making the Marinated Tofu

The first step is to prepare the marinated tofu. Grab a shallow dish and whisk together 1/4 cup tamari, 1 tablespoon water, 1 teaspoon ground cumin, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, and 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano. Drain 1 block of firm tofu and slice it into thin rectangles, about 1/2-inch thick. Add the sliced tofu to the marinade and let it sit for at least 10 minutes.

After marinating, heat your pan over medium-high heat until hot. Add in a little bit of oil, then carefully place the tofu slices onto the pan. Cook each side until golden brown and crispy, which should take about 3-4 minutes per side. Set the cooked tofu aside while you assemble the remaining parts of your wrap.

Making the Chipotle Mayo

The next step is making our flavourful chipotle mayo. In a small bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons vegan sour cream, 2 chipotle chiles in adobo (chopped), and a splash of lime juice (optional). Taste and adjust according to your preferences.

Assembling Your Wrap

Alright, time to put everything together! Grab a whole wheat tortilla and spread a generous amount of chipotle mayo on it. Next, add in some lettuce leaves, alfalfa sprouts, sliced red onion rings, sliced cucumber, chopped tomatoes, and grated carrots. Once that’s done, add in your crispy marinated tofu on top of your veggies.

To make your wrap extra-tasty, drizzle on some extra chipotle sauce or maple syrup if you like. Then tightly roll up your wrap, starting from one end to prevent any fillings from falling out.

Serving Your Marinated Tofu Wraps

These wraps are perfect for both lunch or dinner- they’re versatile enough for any mealtime. They’re also great for meal prep or taking on-the-go!

That’s it for our Vegan Marinated Tofu Wraps with Chipotle Mayo recipe! Don’t forget to experiment with different variations or customize them according to your preferences – this recipe is very adaptable!


Substitutions and Variations

Let’s face it, not every ingredient in this recipe might be available at your grocery store or you may simply crave a different flavor. Fear not, as there are plenty of ways to customize this vegan marinated tofu wrap recipe.

Firstly, if you’re not a fan of tofu or simply want a change, you can replace it with grilled portobello mushrooms or tempeh. Both options work great in wraps and add their own unique flavors and textures.

For those who prefer a little extra heat, try swapping the chipotle chiles in adobo with harissa paste or Sriracha sauce for an intense spicy kick. Alternatively, if you’re not a fan of spicy food, omit the chiles altogether and go for a mild seasoning using smoked paprika powder.

If you want to add some extra veggies to your wrap, feel free to experiment with different fillings. Avocado or hummus spread can serve as excellent substitutes to the mayo and sour cream mix for extra creaminess. Roasted sweet potatoes or bell peppers will add some delicious sweetness to the whole wheat tortilla along with leafy greens like arugula or spinach.

Lastly, switch up the tortilla for lettuce wraps for a lighter version of this filling meal. This plant-based option is also ideal for those sensitive to gluten, and works well with the marinated tofu filling.

No matter what substitution or variation you choose, don’t be afraid to get creative with this recipe and tailor it according to your taste preferences.

Serving and Pairing

Once your vegan marinated tofu wraps with chipotle mayo are ready, it’s time to dig in! These wraps are perfect for lunch or dinner as they are both filling and delicious. They pair well with a variety of different sides, such as roasted sweet potatoes or a refreshing side salad.

For an extra crunch, I love to add whole wheat tortilla chips drizzled with the remaining chipotle mayo on the side. Alternatively, you could serve these wraps with a small bowl of vegan sour cream mixed with additional chipotle chiles in adobo sauce for an added spicy kick.

For a complete meal, try serving these wraps with roasted or grilled veggies, such as bell peppers, zucchini or eggplant. You could even make a buddha bowl by adding some jasmine rice and some smoky chipotle sauce for additional flavor.

If you’re feeling adventurous, try making tofu tacos and use the marinated tofu as a topping instead of in a wrap. You could also make lettuce wraps instead of tortilla wraps for a lighter option.

Overall, these vegan marinated tofu wraps with chipotle mayo are versatile and can be paired with many different sides and veggies to create a delicious and satisfying meal.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

Planning ahead can be a lifesaver when it comes to meal prep. These Marinated Tofu Wraps are perfect for making ahead of time and enjoying later. Store them in the fridge or freezer for a healthy plant-based lunch or dinner option that is quick and easy to reheat.

To make-ahead, prepare the marinated tofu, chipotle mayo, and sliced veggies as instructed in section (4) The Recipe How-To, then assemble the wraps by spreading the mayo on the tortillas and layering with the marinated tofu, veggies, and sprouts. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap or foil and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days or in the freezer for up to a month.

When it’s time to reheat, keep the wraps wrapped in plastic wrap or foil while heating them in the oven at 350°F until warm throughout. Alternatively, you can heat them up individually in a skillet or panini press for a crispy exterior.

Tip: If you’re planning on freezing the wraps, it’s best to add lettuce leaves separately after reheating to prevent them from getting soggy.

These wraps are also great for meal prepping Buddha bowls, potato burritos, or vegetable wraps. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to five days or frozen for up to three months.

With these tips and tricks, you can enjoy delicious vegan Marinated Tofu Wraps without having to worry about meal prep throughout your busy week.

Tips for Perfect Results

Now that we’re getting to the more detailed bits, let’s take a moment to discuss some tips for achieving the best results with this Vegan Marinated Tofu Wraps recipe.

Firstly, ensure you use firm tofu for this recipe as it will hold up better when marinating and cooking. You can also press the tofu before marinating. This removes extra liquid from the tofu, which allows it to better absorb the marinade and hold its shape during cooking.

Another key tip is to cut your veggies into thin strips or julienne-style, so they don’t compete in size or texture with the tofu. This will make the flavor of your wrap more balanced, and it will be easier to wrap everything up tightly in your tortilla or lettuce cups.

When marinating your tofu, let it sit in the sauce for at least 30 minutes, but preferably overnight. This allows the tofu to fully absorb all of those delicious flavors.

If you’re using a grill to cook your tofu, preheat the grill on high heat for about ten minutes before cooking. It’s best not to move the tofu around too much while cooking so that it has time to develop flavorful caramelization and char marks.

Lastly, If you love spicy food, consider adding more chipotle chiles in adobo sauce to give your wrap extra depth of flavor. You can also adjust the sweetness level of your Chipotle Mayo according to your taste buds by using more or less maple syrup.

With these tips in mind, feel free to experiment and make this recipe your own!

Bottom Line

In conclusion, these Vegan Marinated Tofu Wraps with Chipotle Mayo are a tasty and nutritious option for lunch or dinner. With a variety of fresh vegetables and flavorful tofu, this dish is perfect for vegans or those looking to include more plant-based meals in their diets.

Whether you’re looking for a quick and easy vegan lunch, or a delicious meal for your next dinner party, these wraps have got you covered. With the combination of the smoky chipotle tofu, the creamy and spicy mayo sauce, and the crunch of the fresh vegetables wrapped in a warm tortilla, these wraps are sure to impress any palate.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with different variations of this recipe by trying out different toppings or sauces. The possibilities are endless with this dish; it can be served as a wrap, a sandwich or lettuce wrap, or even as part of a buddha bowl.

Vegan Marinated Tofu Wraps W/Chipotle Mayo Recipe

I've been experimenting with wraps lately and this idea seemed really good. And it was! A tip for the mayo: make it the day before and don't add any extra chiles or adobo sauce until the next day after you've tasted it. It gets MUCH hotter after it sits for a day or two.
