How to Grill Your Tofu
Take the tofu out of the package and drain excess water. Rise the tofu and pat dry using a paper towel.
Place the tofu on 2 paper towels or a clean kitchen towel and put it on a large plate.
Add 2-3 heavy ceramic bowls on top of the tofu. The weight of the bowls will not squish or break the tofu but will simply just push the majority of the water out of the tofu. Let the tofu release the excess water for 20-30 minutes.
Cut tofu into thin long slices to fit in the wraps better.
Place the grill pan on your stove. Heat your grill pan on medium to high heat. Once hot, spray the pan with oil and spread the tofu slices out evenly. Avoid stacking the tofu so they grill evenly.
Lay your tofu on the pan and grill for 3 minutes. Flip tofu and grill for an additional 3 minutes.
Don’t have a grill pan? Bake your pressed tofu instead. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a baking pan with oil and evenly lay the tofu on the pan. Bake for 30 minutes and add it to your wrap.
Preparing Your Wrap
In a large bowl combine the red bell pepper, carrot, shredded cabbage, salt, pepper and Drew’s Organics Thai Coconut Sesame Dressing, then toss.
Assemble your wraps. Lay the tofu down first and add the cabbage mix on top. You can use string to tie the wrap together or just eat it as is.
Garnish with chopped green onions, fresh cilantro and sesame seeds. Drizzle with additional dressing and eat!
Leftovers will last wrapped up in the refrigerator for 1 day.
