Tofu Frankies

Lavash breads are a staple of places like Turkey, Armenia, Iran. Here in the US, I came across Lavash breads at a speciality grocery store, that sells Mediterranean foods. It is quite similar to the roomali rotis we get in India, in fact they will work just perfectly with any curry dish.

I have been seeing the bread at Trader Joes (read my favourite store) for a long time now and wanting to try it out too. So I finally got it and thought of trying out wraps.

Why tofu? Well firstly my husband being a vegetarian doesn't get enough proteins and so I figured I need to give him protein at least once a day. Though he does have dals, but we don't have Indian everyday. So I really have to think hard in order for him to get his share of proteins for the day. He likes tofu, but only in Thai food, hence I figured that I need to camouflage it and serve it to him,and eureka!!!!!!, wraps.....What better way to camouflage, than to wrap it.

I don't think I am making any sense, here goes the recipe

You will need

  • Lavash bread- 2 sheets, (or you can use tortillas)

For the filling

  • 1 boiled potatoes
  • 1 green bell pepper (chopped)
  • 1/2 onion (chopped)
  • tofu-1 cup (crumbled)
  • tomato sauce- 1/2 tsp
  • chily sauce- 1/2 ts
  • Lemon juice- 1/4th tsp
  • salt and pepper - to taste
  • sour cream- 1-2 tbsp
  • oil- 1 tbsp

You will have to

  1. Heat oil in a pan.
  2. saute onions, till transparent. Add the bell peppers. saute
  3. add the boiled potatoes, along with the tofu.
  4. Add the salt and pepper, along with the tomato sauce and the chilly sauce.
  5. Mix everything up , slightly mash the potatoes and mix it with the tofu. Add the lemon juice.
  6. Heat the lavash lightly,
  7. Place a spoonfull of the mixture in the center, add a little sour cream and roll the lavash all around.
  8. Cut through the center.
  9. Serve as is. Or keep it prepared and warm in the oven, everyone will love it.
