Vegetable Sticks and Hummus:

- Hummus - 4 oz
- Parsley - Chop parsley. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
- Celery / Carrots - Slice into strips for dipping. If not using right away, soak in cold water in the fridge (this will help them stay crisp). (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
- Marinate tofu - Tofu - If tofu is packaged in water, press out liquid first, like in this video. Then slice into 0.5” / 1.25 cm thick cubes. Mix tofu with olive oil (portion for the tofu), the first portion of parsley, dried oregano, salt, garlic powder and black pepper. (Can be done 1 day ahead)
- Tomatoes / Onions - Prep as directed and combine. (Can be done up to 2 days ahead)
- Toss tomatoes, onions and second part of parsley in vinegar. Season with some salt and pepper.
- Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add tofu (including marinade) and saute until tofu is starting to turn golden brown and is warmed through, 5 to 6 minutes.
- While meatballs cook, heat wraps in the microwave until warm but still soft.
- To assemble wraps, spread one side with hummus (the portion for the wraps). Top with tofu and tomatoes. Enjoy vegetable sticks and remaining hummus on the side.
