In the summer I crave protein loaded light meals. This is one of my favourite lunches; it leaves me energized and ready to be under the hot sun for the rest of the day.
Why do I love this recipe?
* It’s protein filled: This wrap recipe is made with egg for a protein boost, and as an added bonus the egg wraps are silky and crepe-like - just delicious. Along with the tofu in the spread this wrap is a protein powerhouse!
* It has microgreen power: Along with the tofu spread, this wrap is filled with microgreen sprouts because they are just so delicious! They give a crunch and a flavour unlike in any other veggies we grow, and they are full of life and energy!
* It’s filled with miso goodness: Have you used miso paste before? It’s a staple in asian cooking, and is full of essential minerals and vitamins, as well as flavour. Also, as it’s a fermented product, it is full of beneficial bacteria that is great for gut health.
Organic miso is one product that I haven’t found consistently in my nearby grocery store since moving to Ottawa, so I ordered a case of my favourite one so you can add organic miso-power to this recipe!
I also suggest adding bbq sauce to the wrap. Why? Because it's just soooo good. In our travels on the east coast we found this amazing bbq sauce made in Canada that is sweetened with honey and it’s just the best. I think I eat bbq sauce in every meal - believe it or not I’ll even put it in a smoothie. Maybe that’s a recipe for another week!?
Egg Wraps filled with Tofu Veggie Spread
1 block (454g) firm tofu
1 cup grated carrots or cubed celery
3T oil or mayo
3T apple cider vinegar
3T cilantro, green onion, parsley and/or dill
Mix everything in the food processor except carrots. Add carrots once well mixed and mix a bit in the food processor.
For every wrap:
1T starch (corn or arrowroot work well)
Mix well, fry in a hot pan. When you flip it, let it cook for only briefly as it will get too crunchy otherwise. I make a batch of 10 every few days and they make excellent snacks (think peanut butter with yogurt and fruits, or filled with a chocolate pudding and chia seeds, or any sandwich extravaganza that you like!)
In the cold or warm wrap, spread the spread (!), add cut up microgreens, arugula or any other greens, thinly sliced radishes, and cucumber. Generously top with bbq sauce and roll away!
Don’t be afraid to go crazy with the BBQ sauce and cheese - we sure aren’t!
