Soak your soy curls in warm broth, if you haven’t already and let them sit for 10 to 15 minutes to rehydrate. Drain the soy curls and reserve the remaining broth. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat.
Add the oil, drained soy curls, and sliced onions (if using). Cook until the soy curls are slightly golden on some edges. 5-7 mins. Then add the buffalo sauce, cajun seasoning, and 3 tablespoons of the reserved broth and toss well. Continue to cook for 2 to 4 minutes or until the sauce thickens a little bit then switch off the heat.
Heat up the tortillas in the microwave or over the stove and top them with some lettuce or cabbage, and add the cooked soy curls and onion. Sprinkle some salt and black pepper and a good drizzle of the vegan ranch. You can also add some fresh herbs like, parsley or cilantro, and serve immediately.
This recipe makes about three wraps. This recipe can be easily doubled to make more wraps. You can also make a burrito by adding a little bit of lime rice on the side and make burritos.
To make this without soy curls, use shredded tofu. No need to soak, just press and shred the tofu and use.
To make it soy-free, you can use other soy-free vegan chicken substitutes, such as seitan or store-bought vegan chicken substitutes. You don’t need to soak any of these ingredients in the broth, just add them to the skillet with the sauce and cook until the sauce has slightly thickened and use. You can also use cooked chickpeas as a protein substitute.
