TLT – Tofu Lettuce Tomato

TLT – Tofu Lettuce Tomato

Growing up BLT’s were my favourite sandwich of all time. It was perfect. The crisp lettuce, a sweet tomato mixed with some salty delicious bacon. Also the slathering of mayo for me made the perfect sandwich. Until now. It’s no secret I’ve taken some time off eating meat just for a little break and I found myself craving the old classics. That’s where this dish came in.

I love love love tofu and it’s a great alternate to meat. I was craving a BLT one day and wanted to fill that void so here came the TLT! It’s super simple for breakfast lunch or dinner and doesn’t take too much time to make! I made this as a wrap so I can crisp up the tortilla and I often have wraps lying around my kitchen anyways so it was a no brainer. You’ll need my Ultra Crispy Tofu Recipe for this so feel free to get that started and the rest is just assembly!

It's a riff off an old classic. Whether you're not eating meat, are vegetarian or just want to try something new this will not disappoint! Even my meat eater friends love it and you won't miss the bacon this once, I promise!

Equipment

  • Frying Pan
  • Cooling Rack

Ingredients
  

  • Ultra Crispy Tofu Recipe
  • 4 Flour Tortillas
  • 2 Ripe Tomatos Roma, Heirloom or vine works great here
  • 1 head Romaine Lettuce
  • 4 tbsp Kewpie Mayo
  • 4 tbsp Sriracha

Instructions
 

  • Use my Ultra Crispy Tofu Recipe to cook the Tofu, Linked above 🙂
  • Lay out all tortillas and start laying the toppings, I like to go in this order; kewpie mayo, Sriracha, lettuce and tomato. Be mindful not to overfill, you want to be able to wrap these up like an envelop.
  • Add 2 pieces of tofu to each wrap. To wrap, pull in both outsides to the centre. Take top piece closest to you and pull over entire wrap, tucking it into the wrap and roll similar to a burrito.
  • Get frying pan up to medium heat
  • Place wraps folded side down to help seal the wrap. I also like to use a cast iron pan or heavy pan to apply pressure on top similar to a panini press. After 4 minutes flip and do the other side.
  • Cut on a bias and serve with your favourite side, fries or a salad works great here!
