no cook recipe: tomato and tofu wrap with avocado pesto

ever since i saw the two words “avocado” + “pesto” together when i looking at Buzzfeed’s list of “Healthiest … Recipes to Save for Later“, i knew i had to try it. Eat Yourself Skinny‘s recipe was for the pesto with zucchini noodles but flipping through Power Vegan Meals by Maya Sozer at the bookstore, i briefly saw the dish: Broccoli Quinoa Wrap with Avocado Pesto and i knew what was for dinner!

i had some tortilla wraps in the fridge already so i made my avocado pesto first and then i looked through my fridge for ingredients i could use that was easy to grab. the result was a tofu and tomato wrap with avocado pesto. OMG it is my new favorite vegetarian dish!
