🔪Prep Time: 25 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

caesar dressing (makes 2 cups)

1 bulb of garlic

1 tsp olive oil, for roasting garlic

pinch sea salt and ground black pepper

3/4 C cubed medium or firm tofu

3/4 C water

2 tbsp olive oil

1 pitted medjool date

3 tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp lemon zest

3 1/2 tbsp nutritional yeast

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1/2 tsp dijon mustard

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp ground black pepper

tofu bacon bits

1/2 brick of firm tofu

1/4 C low-sodium soy sauce or tamari

1/4 C water

2 tbsp liquid smoke

2 tbsp maple syrup

1 1/2 tsp smoked paprika

salad

4 C romaine lettuce, roughly chopped

1/4 C red onion, thinly sliced

2 vegan chicken cutlets, sliced (or vegan chicken pieces)

2 tsp vegetable oil, for frying

Instructions

1Preheat oven to 425°F.

2To prepare the bulb of garlic for roasting, peel the outer layers of the garlic bulb skin leaving a thin layer still in tact and cut the top of the bulb off, approximately 1/4 inch from the top, ensuring the cloves are visible. Coat the top with olive oil, and a pinch of sea salt, and ground black pepper. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes until the cloves are browned and soft.

3Bake the tofu bacon bits in the oven at the same time as the garlic. Finely crumble the tofu into bits in a dish and add the marinade ingredients. Stir to combine and coat all the tofu. Lay it out on a parchment lined baking sheet in an even layer. Bake for 25 minutes until browned and crispy. You may need to bake it less depending on your oven, and be sure to flip it once or twice throughout baking.

4Place all the dressing ingredients in a high-powered blender along with the roasted cloves of garlic and blend on high until very smooth. Refrigerate the dressing until ready to assemble and serve.

5Pan fry the vegan chicken cutlets or pieces for 5 to 6 minutes over medium heat with a little bit of oil until browned and cooked through. If using cutlets, cut them into strips once browned.

6Toss romaine, red onion, and some dressing together in a large bowl until well coated with dressing. Lay out a portion onto your wrap and then add chicken strips. Wrap tightly and cut in half. Serve immediately.
