Plantain Poblano Tofu Wrap.

This Plantain Poblano Tofu Wrap is amazing! Stove top roasted poblano peppers, simple citrus sauteed tofu and sweet plantains all folded into a whole grain tortilla. Vegan Mexican at its best! Light enough for lunch, substantial enough for dinner. Four easy steps. Here's the recipe...

I call this my "Hungry? No Poblano! Wrap". Keep it in your recipe repertoire for a fast, delicious, easy-yet exotic meal. Great protein from the tofu, fiber from the peppers, plantains and tortilla. The spicy kick from the poblano is stimulating to your palate.
