How to Make The Tofu and Spinach Wraps

Place the tofu in a single layer on a clean kitchen towel, cover it with another towel, and weigh it down for 15 minutes using a plate or baking sheet with a heavy can on top.

Crumble the tofu after removing the towels.

In the interim, heat the oven to 425°F. Spray cooking oil on a sizable baking sheet with a rim.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon of oil. About 3 minutes later, add the tofu and cook it till golden.

Cook for a further 2 to 3 minutes while stirring, or until golden brown. Add cayenne, cayenne pepper, and lemon zest after transferring the tofu to a platter.

Put the pan back over medium-high heat and add 1/4 cup each of bell pepper, onion, and oil.

Cook for about 3 minutes, stirring periodically until the vegetables are tender and starting to color.

Add the spinach and the garlic; stir-fry for 3 minutes, or until the spinach wilts.

Cook, stirring, for approximately a minute or until the liquid has evaporated after adding the herbs and lemon juice.

With a 1-inch border, divide the tofu and spinach mixture among the wraps.

Each should have 1 tablespoon of leftover onion and 2 tablespoons of feta on top.

Place each wrap, seam-side down, on the preheated baking sheet. Roll each wrap into a burrito.

Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup feta over the burritos after brushing them with the final 1 teaspoon of oil. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until crispy.
