It seems like only yesterday that I was using tofu for the first time!
And now I’m using tofu two days in a row? Just consider me a tofu expert. Winking smile
I’m totally kidding, but still I’m happy to be over my tofu intimidation.
If I had a nickel for every time I said tofu in those first few sentences…
Anyway, every Monday and Wednesday I have classes all day. So of course, I pack my lunch [in my handy dandy lunchbox] the night before. I like to be prepared!
Usually, my lunches involve tempeh wraps, apples, and larabars…nothing too exciting, yet all wholesome and delicious.
Last night I knew I wanted to incorporate the remaining tofu into my lunch. The question is: how the heck do you pack tofu to-go without ending up with a soggy lunch?
Well, make a wrap filling and pack all the ingredients separately of course. I got a few funny stares when I whipped out half of my kitchen to make a wrap in the middle of the library, but the outcome was well worth it!
Tofu n’ Hummus Sandwich Filling
*I didn’t set out to make this vegan, but it is. Added bonus?
- 1/2 block of tofu (drained/pressed/sliced—see method here)
- 1 heaping T. hummus
- Mustard (honey, regular, spicy…whatever you like)
- Nutritional Yeast
Simply add all the ingredients to a Tupperware and give it shake.
Cute snowman Tupperware is optional.
Simple and delicious. Seriously you guys, this doesn’t get any simpler!
I also packed chopped veggies to add to the wrap.
- Baby carrots
- Green pepper
I packed way too many veggies, so I ate about half of them plain. I forgot how much I love raw green pepper!
I packed a large La Tortilla Factory whole wheat wrap to fill-up.
And—shocker—an apple and larabar rounded out the meal!
I am a total creature of habit sometimes!
Well after all this food talk, I am ready for some dinner! But first I’m going to hit the treadmill (5k is in less than 2 weeks).
