Super Tasty & Easy Vegan-Pizza Wraps

This recipe comes from and it is super delicious! I haven’t always been jazzed about tofu but when you prepare it the way this recipe calls for it’s extremely eatable. While the tofu is baking it fills the kitchen with the most amazing smells. It really does smell like perperoni!

This is supposed to be a kid-friendly recipe but for super picky eaters they may turn their nose up at it! Case in point my four-year-old niece she wouldn’t even consider tasting it. Older kids who are more adventurous might dig right in though. Either way it’s an excellent dish. I am not a huge fan of vegan mozzarella so I skipped the cheese all together. For the hummus I actually used home-made hummus, you can find the recipe for it here.

I really hope you try this and enjoy it as much as I do!

Makes 4-5 wraps

What You Need:

For the tofu:
1/3 cup Braggs Liquid Aminos
1 15.5-ounce package firm tofu, drained and pressed

2/3 cup pizza sauce
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon agave, maple syrup, or brown sugar
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning (never seem to have Italian seasoning so I improvise...garlic salt & a little bit of Lawry's Seasoning Salt)
1 teaspoon fennel seeds (do not omit the fennel seeds)

5 brown rice tortillas
1 head of green leaf lettuce
1 block vegan mozzarella, sliced
1 8-ounce container red pepper hummus (or make your own)

First you preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut tofu into 8 even rectangles and place in a small dish. Cover with Braggs and let sit, about 15 minutes. Drain tofu, reserving liquid in a separate bowl.
To make the marinade you will stir all the (marinade) ingredients together in bowl, this includes the Bragg'.
Place the tofu in a baking dish, a single layer and cover with marinade. Bake for 45 minutes,      drain excess liquid and increase oven temperature to 400 degrees. Bake for an additional 25 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking time. Let the tofu cool for a bit.
I like to toast the rice tortilla's or heat them up in the microwave. You will layer the wrap with 2 pieces of tofu lettuce, 2 tbsp of hummus, and a slice of vegan cheese (it's great without the cheese too). Enjoy the wraps!
