Gluten Free Tofu Thai Wrap Ingredients

You need extra-firm tofu for this vegan gluten free lunch recipe. This is the kind that holds together best. Forget the soft silken tofus – they’re great for making drinks and desserts but not here. Sesame oil, tamari, ginger, and garlic give the tofu a great Asian flavour.

And then you have spinach, bell pepper, cabbage, and carrots, as well as red onion and cilantro. They add crunch, colour and nutrients as well. Gluten free wraps roll tightly around these ingredients to make the gluten free tofu Thai wrap.

Coconut Almond Butter Dip Ingredients

Coconut milk is the base of this dip/sauce. That’s a popular ingredient in Thai cuisine. Red curry paste adds even more Thai appeal. Almond butter, garlic and lime are also wonderful in this dip. If you want to change it up a little, green curry paste (or even yellow) would work too. Or you could swap the almond butter for peanut butter if you prefer that,

How to Prepare Extra-Firm Tofu for a Recipe

Tofu has rather a neutral flavour by itself. It isn’t unpleasant at all – it just doesn’t taste of much! This is why most recipes call for the tofu to be marinated. This protein absorbs a marinade like a sponge and it doesn’t take long either.

Before marinating it though, you will need to get the excess liquid out. The easiest way to do this is wrap it in paper towels. Put the tofu on a plate and then put some glass or ceramic bowls, or a heavy pot or skillet, on top of it. Let it sit like that for half an hour or so and liquid will come out.

After blotting off the liquid, you can chop it into pieces. If you marinate a block of tofu, the marinade doesn’t get very deep into it. If you chop it up first though, every cut side of each piece is coated.

In this vegan and gluten free wrap recipe the marinade is Asian inspired. It’s made with sesame oil, tamari, garlic, and ginger. Those are typical marinating ingredients in a number of cuisines including Chinese, Japanese and Thai.

After adding the tofu to the marinade you can cover and refrigerate it for half an hour or more. The marinade will soak into the tofu and boost its flavour for the easy tofu wrap.

How to Make this Gluten Free Tofu Thai Wrap

You’ve marinated the tofu. Now what? While it is marinating you can prepare the coconut almond butter dip. Whisk all the ingredients together and pour the mixture into a jar. Put the lid on and refrigerate it until ready to serve.

The tofu takes a couple of minutes per side to cook in a preheated grill pan. I like to use a skillet so you can see the grill marks on the tofu. You could even cook it on an outdoor grill if you wanted. The vegetables are thinly sliced.

To assemble this vegan gluten free lunch recipe, divide the vegetables and cilantro between the wraps. Top with the tofu, drizzle with the coconut almond butter dip and serve. You can either use all the dip in the wraps or use half and drizzle the rest over the top.

Vegan and Gluten Free Wrap Variations

You can sub soy sauce for the tamari if you want. Make sure it’s gluten-free (not all soy sauces are) if you’re sensitive to gluten.

This easy tofu wrap contains various vegetables. You can tweak those if you like. Beansprouts, enoki mushrooms or any other vegetable you don’t mind raw would also work. I like to use mostly crisp veggies – gotta love the crunch!

Slice the vegetables ahead and pop the tofu in the marinade ahead. Make the coconut almond butter dip too and keep it refrigerated. You can just give it a good shake to mix it up again.

When you’re ready just grill or pan-fry the tofu and assemble the gluten free tofu Thai wrap! You will be rewarded with freshest and best Thai flavours.

Ingredients

  • 1 Package tofu extra firm
  • 1 Tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp. tamari soy sauce gluten free
  • 1 Tsp. ginger paste
  • 1/2 Tsp. black pepper ground
  • 1/2 Tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 Cup baby spinach
  • 1/2 Cup carrots cut into matchsticks
  • bell pepper red, cut into strips
  • 1/2 Cup red cabbage shredded
  • 1/4 Cup cilantro fresh chopped
  • 1 red onion sliced thin
  • 4 tortilla wraps gluten free

Coconut Almond Butter Dressing 

  • 1 Cup coconut milk
  • 1 Tbsp. thai red curry paste
  • 1 Tbsp. almond butter
  • 3 Cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 Tsp. sea salt

Instructions

  • Drain the tofu from its packaging and wrap in a paper towel. Place onto a plate with 2 to 3 glass or ceramic bowls over the tofu to squeeze out any excess water. I recommend letting it sit like this for at least 30 minutes.
  • Use a paper towel to blot excess water off of the tofu. Cut the tofu into ½” strips. In a medium sized mixing bowl, add sesame oil, soy sauce, ginger, pepper, and garlic powder. Whisk to combine. Add the tofu to the bowl and cover. Place into the fridge for 30 minutes.  
  • While the tofu is marinating, prepare coconut thai dressing. Add all ingredients to a small bowl and whisk well to combine. Place into a mason jar or covered bowl in the fridge until ready to serve.  
  • Heat a grill pan over medium high heat. Add the tofu to the pan and cook for 2 minutes per side.
  • Prepare wraps. Wash and thinly slice cabbage, red onion, and bell pepper. Chop the cilantro. Place a wrap onto a plate or flat work surface and add ¼ of the spinach, matchstick carrots, red pepper, red onion, and cilantro to the center of each wrap.
  • Top with 1 to 2 slices of tofu. Drizzle with Thai coconut almond sauce. Roll into a wrap.
