BBQ “Chicken” & Coleslaw Wraps

by Jill Dalton

My husband Jeffrey had been craving some good BBQ for quite some time now and came into the kitchen one morning with this wild idea, “How about a BBQ & Coleslaw Wrap?”. I have to admit I was skeptical at first but after a few attempts at getting the BBQ sauce just right we were absolutely blown away at how utterly scrumptious this recipe is. The smoky rich BBQ sauce and chewy, lightly crusted, tofu curls sitting atop our creamy coleslaw all wrapped up in a charred tortilla… mind blown. You will be amazed at how delicious, quick & easy this recipe is!

for the first time in my life, I made a delicious BBQ sauce, but I paired it with jackfruit so it was like “pulled-faux-pork” and my husband and I love it.

Hi, it’s not easy to find molasses where I live. Is it possible to substitute with more dates? 🙂

Hi Jill, instead of soaking the soy curls, you might try simmering them on the stove for 10-15min. Drain off the liquid, and
depending on how meaty you want the texture, blot the soy curls with paper towels. Add the BBQ sauce to the pan and heat, then add the soy curls so that they can absorb all that delicious sauce. I use this method when I use my own teriyaki
and kung poh sauces.
