These vegetarian wraps are full of spiced tofu, corn, green onions, avocados and romaine leaves as an outer shell.
2 tsp peanut oil
1 package firm tofu (12- to 14-oz size)
¼ tsp chili powder, or more to taste
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 green onions, sliced
2 ears fresh corn, kernels cut off cobs
¼ cup soy sauce
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
6 large inner leaves romaine lettuce (from romaine heart)
2 avocados, sliced
1. Heat the oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Throw in the tofu and break it up into very small pieces. Cook until much of the liquid cooks off and the tofu starts to turn golden, for several minutes.
2. Add the chili powder and some salt and pepper, then stir. Throw in the green onions and corn and cook for a few minutes (the corn can remain crunchy). Add the soy sauce and cook until most of the liquid has been absorbed. Turn off the heat and stir in the balsamic vinegar.
3. Pile the mixture into individual romaine lettuce leaves, then add slices of avocado. Fold up and chow down!
