What's For Lunch: Tofu Mediterranean Wrap

Wrap with baked tofu, basil leaves, garlic hummus, sundried tomatoes, artichoke hearts and kalamata olives
Tofu Mediterranean Wrap

Wraps are one of my favorite lunch meals.  They are quick and easy to prepare, great for eating "on the go" and can use whatever ingredients you have in the fridge or pantry.  I have several "signature" wraps that I go back to again and again, but this tofu mediterranean wrap is at the top of my list.

Tofu Mediterranean Wrap

Ingredients:

  • (1) Ezekial wrap
  • 4 thin slices of baked tofu (I like the Trader Joe's Savory flavor)
  • 1-2 tablespoons of hummus (I like to use the roasted garlic variety)
  • 4-5 fresh basil leaves
  • 4-5 sundried tomatoes, julienned
  • 4-6 quartered artichoke hearts, depending on their size
  • 6 kalamata olives, halved
Directions:

Spread hummus over entire wrap.  Down the middle of the wrap, place the tofu slices in vertical line.  Then, layer the tomatoes, artichoke hearts, and olives on top of the tofu.  Add the basil leaves last.  Starting at the side closest to you, roll the wrap away from you, as you lightly squeeze the ingredients inside to compact them together.  Once you roll the entire wrap, slice in half.

I like to serve this wrap with marinated mushrooms and cornichons on the side.  Delish!
