I was asked by Loving Hut Southgate to come up with some vegan grab-and-go lunch recipes. So I came up with this idea. This vegan chicken wrap recipe makes a tasty lunch! You can fill the wrap with your favourite nutritious vegetables such as lettuce, tomato, cucumber or avocado to get some of your 5 a day!
1 Gluten free wrap
1/4 Vegan spicy tofu chicken
3tbsp Vegan mayonnaise
1 Lettuce leaf
1 Medium tomato
Firstly make the vegan spicy tofu chicken and vegan mayonnaise.
Now place the wrap on a flat surface. Place a lettuce leaf In the middle of the wrap. Now put down a line of the vegan spicy tofu chicken. Add on the dollops of vegan mayonnaise. Next cut the avocado in half lengthways and cut one quarter into slices. Place the avocado slices on the wrap. Chop the tomato into slices and place on the wrap.
Finally roll up the wrap and cut in half. Enjoy!
This vegan spicy tofu chicken recipe is inspired by a trip to Loving Hut Southgate where I was served tasty vegan chicken pieces in rice noodles with stir fried vegetables. Vegan spicy tofu chicken is easy to make and is delicious in a vegan chicken and lettuce wrap or with a meal for dinner.
1 block tofu
3tbsp gluten free flour
1tbsp ground flaxseed or gram flour
1tbsp dijon mustard
1/2tsp sea salt
1/2tsp black pepper
1tbsp coconut oil
Firstly drain the tofu and place it on a piece of kitchen roll. Place something heavy such as a chopping board on top of the tofu and press down.
Now prepare the batter. Add the flour, ground flaxseed, mustard, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper into a bowl. Mix it together, then create a well in the middle. Slowly add the water and mix in as you go, until the mixture forms a smooth batter.
Break up the pressed tofu into bite sized pieces and add into the batter. Cover the tofu in batter.
Add the oil into a large frying pan on a medium heat. Add in the tofu pieces and fry for 10-15 minutes until the tofu sides are golden brown. Turn over the tofu pieces half way through.
Serve warm and eat immediately.
