These are one of my favorite healthy vegetarian meals. Crispy tofu that’s caramelized with a little maple syrup and loaded up with crunchy veggies and an easy spicy peanut sauce!

Ingredients

1 (14-16 oz. package) extra firm tofu
2 tablespoons neutral oil
1 tablespoon maple syrup
Cucumber, sliced thin
Red pepper, sliced thin
Red onion, sliced thin
Bean sprouts
Lettuce

Spicy Peanut Sauce:

1/3 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1/3 cup water
2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce

Directions

  1. For tofu, cut it into about 1/4-inch thick sheets and press the tofu between paper towels to press out as much liquid as possible. Then slice tofu into sticks and pat dry.
  2. Add neutral oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat. A nonstick skillet or well-seasoned cast iron skillet works best. When the oil is shimmering, add the tofu sticks and cook until the are crispy and lightly browned around the edges, about 3-4 minutes per side.
  3. Drizzle tofu with maple syrup and continue to cook until the syrup forms a glaze on the tofu, a few minutes. Then remove skillet from the heat.
  4. Meanwhile, stir together peanut sauce ingredients in a small pot over medium heat. Once ingredients are simmering lightly, turn heat down to low and simmer for 3-4 minutes until sauce thickens. Then remove from heat and let cool to room temp.
  5. Slice all your veggies into thin strips. I like to cut the cucumbers into half-coins.
  6. Make a wrap by layering veggies longwise on a flatbread. Then top with a few strips of tofu and drizzle with sauce. Serve extra sauce on the side!
