How to make Veggie Shawarma Recipe with Marinated Tofu


Marinate Your Tofu: In a large bowl combine tofu with olive oil, lemon juice, curry, paprika, garlic powder, coriander, oregano, ginger and salt and pepper. Marinate for 10 minutes.


Pickle Your Onion: While tofu is marinating, thinly slice onion. Submerge onion in 1/2 cup of white vinegar in a small bowl. Allow to sit for at least 10 minutes.


Make The Yogurt (tzatziki inspired) Sauce: Combine yogurt, tahini, lemon juice, garlic powder and salt in a mixing bowl. Whisk together to combine.


Cook the Tofu: Heat a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the marinated tofu and juices and cook for 10 minutes or until crispy and golden brown. Remove from heat.


Assemble Your Shawarma Wraps: Massage greens with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
