    • ¼ teaspoon ghee or sesame oil
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • pinch red chili flakes
    • ⅛ to ¼ cup vegetable stock
    • ½ tablespoon Bragg Liquid Aminos or tamari
    • ⅛ cup peanut butter or almond butter
    • ¼ tablespoon maple syrup
    • ¼ tablespoon sesame seeds
    • ¼ tablespoon chopped mint or cilantro

    Per wrap:

    • Two 8- to 10-inch whole-wheat tortillas
    • ½ cup thinly sliced marinated tofu
    • 2 to 3 tablespoons Nutty Dipping Sauce

    • 2 tablespoons grated zucchini
    • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced red cabbage
    • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
    • ½ cup sprouts

    Nutty Dipping Sauce (Per 2-tablespoon serving using ghee):

    • Add ½ cup vegetable stock, aminos, peanut butter, and maple syrup.
