Southwestern Tofu Wraps

Need a quick, healthy lunch or light dinner idea? Then try this recipe for Southwestern Tofu Wraps. The fresh cilantro and lime juice add fresh flavor and liven up the tofu (which is normally bland). To bump up the Southwestern flavors, I also added 1/4 teaspoon each of cumin and chili powder to the tofu mixture. For extra crunch, I substituted shredded cabbage and carrots (plain cole slaw mix) for the sliced lettuce leaves. Garnish with your favorite salsa. Enjoy!

Note: Be sure to drain the tofu really well or the tofu mixture will be watery.

Makes 4 servings 

4 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
8 ounces firm tofu, drained, patted dry, crumbled
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 garlic clove, minced
4 7- to 8-inch-diameter flour tortillas
2 cups thinly sliced lettuce leaves
1 cup spicy tomato salsa

Whisk 3 tablespoons lime juice and oil in medium bowl. Add tofu, onion, cilantro and garlic and toss to blend. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let marinate 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Wrap tortillas in foil. Place in oven until heated through, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, toss lettuce with 1 tablespoon lime juice in small bowl.

Place 1 tortilla on each of 4 plates. Place layer of lettuce down center of each tortilla. Top with tofu mixture, dividing equally. Spoon 1 1/2 tablespoons salsa over each. Roll up tortillas. Serve, passing remaining salsa separately.
