Low Salicylate Tofu Tortillas

by | Jun 19, 2022

Wraps are a big hit in our household. Their versatile nature makes them perfect for little ones who may be cautiously exploring their likes and dislikes when it comes to different ingredients, giving them the foodie freedom to add, subtract, and portion as they wish. I must admit, Evs did wrinkle his nose up at the idea of tofu, but with the delicious soy dressing, I’m sure it won’t take him long to become a convert. As for Dan and I, we adore the chewy crispy texture of the panfried tofu, a perfect pairing to the soft chickpeas, silky greens, and crunchy cashews/shallots. Oh, and did I mention this meal only takes about 15 minutes to prepare? Yes, these wraps are a big hit indeed.

Low Salicylate Tofu Tortillas

Serves 4



  • Cutting board and knife
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons
  • Mixing bowl
  • Frypan



140 grams firm tofu (diced into thin rectangles)

2 handfuls of green cabbage (shredded)

3 stalks of spring onion (finely chopped)

Handful of chives (finely chopped)

2 Tbsp soy sauce

1 tsp malt vinegar

1 pinch sugar

1 can chickpeas (rinsed and drained)

1/4 cup roasted unsalted cashews (roughly chopped)*

5 tsp dried shallots

1 pack of tortialls



1.) Take out tofu from packaging and drain off the water. Using paper towel, gently pat dry the outer layer of tofu.

2.) On high heat, add some oil to the frypan. Add tofu and cook on both sides until golden brown (about 2 min each side). Place cooked tofu into a serving bowl and set to the side.

3.) To prepare sauce for tofu, add spring onions and chives to the fry pan and give them a quick sauté. Place green onions and chives into a bowl. Add soy sauce, malt vinegar and sugar to bowl and mix well to combine. Pour sauce over cooked tofu.

4.) Along with some oil, place cabbage in frypan and sauté until soft. Add in chickpeas and cook for 2 minutes. When ready, place cabbage and chickpeas into serving bowl.

5.) Place chopped cashews into a small serving bowl.

6.) Place fried shallots into small serving bowl.

7.) Place tortillas on a plate and warm them up in the microwave according to package instructions

8.) To serve, place all ingredients onto table and invite everyone to make up their own tortilla wraps

*While cashews have historically tested low for salicylates, more recent tests (Malaker et al. 2017) which retested with free and bound salicylates found cashews to be in the high category. Most people tolerate cashews well, while others may be prone to a reaction, in which case, omit from dish in future if you do find you experience any adverse affects.
