Avocado and Tofu Salad Wraps

This recipe is for a quick and easy lunch. These wraps pack so easy, that you’ll be able to take one anywhere. We just took ours on a road trip from Florida to Arkansas. They travel well and are far better for you than standard roadside fare.

Since I live in a sub-tropical climate, we have access to avocados year round. I take full advantage of that fact and eat them all up, as often as possible! They are a good source of potassium, vitamin C and fiber! Get your avocados out and let’s get started.

The ingredients.

Oh look, tofu!

Hmm, did I forget to mention that the wrap also has tofu in it? Well, it does. Did you know that tofu is an excellent source of calcium and iron? Now you do! The tofu ups the protein of the avocado salad mix. More protein means you stay fuller, longer. I chose the sun dried tomato wraps this time, but any tortilla will do.

Step one – open and drain the tofu. Pat it dry with paper towels and set it aside.

Using one half of the lime, (save the other half for a margarita) squeeze the juice over the avocados and mash lightly.

Grab that tofu. You only need 8 ounces, so cut it in half and save the other half for something else.
