This recipe was inspired by a tofu burrito that I tried at a local restaurant. It is the perfect combination of flavors: salty, sweet, and a little bit of spice. The peanut sauce is very close to Molly Katz's recipe. They are yummy!

  • Whisk peanut butter and water together in a bowl until smooth. Add 1 tablespoon soy sauce, sugar, cider vinegar, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper; whisk until well mixed.

  • Combine slaw mix, cilantro, and rice vinegar in a bowl.

  • Dice tofu into 1-inch cubes.

  • Heat olive oil and sesame oil in a skillet over high heat. Add the tofu, remaining 1 tablespoon soy sauce, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tofu is browned on all sides, about 10 minutes.

  • Lay a tortilla on a plate and add 1/6 of the tofu across the middle. Add 1/2 cup of the slaw mix and 2 tablespoons peanut sauce. Wrap tortilla around the fillings, burrito style. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute any cooking oil for the olive oil, as desired.

This recipe will yield extra peanut sauce, which is great for stir-fry!
