One of our favorite things to eat when we go up to Canada is shawarma! There are many, many fantastic shawarma places up north that have the best shawarmas, falafels, and wraps.  I made this tofu shawarma recipe to recreate the magic in our own kitchen – we love this recipe so much we make it about once a month!
 
All you have to do is crumble a block of tofu, and toss it with pantry-staple spices. Bake (or air fry!) the tofu for 30 minutes, and filled up a pita.  Served with a side of tabbouleh salad, load on the vegan garlic tzatziki sauce, and bring the magic of shawarma home.

Sheet Pan Shawarma Tofu Recipes For the Win!

This tofu spiced shawarma is the perfect sheet pan dinner!  I love a good sheet pan meal, especially during these winter months when the weather starts to turn cooler. Cooking on a sheet pan is one of my favorite ways to get a meal on the table fast!  All the food gets cooked on a single pan, which makes cleaning up a breeze.

And the oven does all the work for you, so you can focus on other kitchen prep while the food cooks. Sheet pan meals are great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner – check out my link here to see other healthy sheet pan meals that are ready in no time!

One of The Best Tofu Dinner Recipes

Whether you’re new to cooking tofu or are a seasoned pro, this tofu shawarma recipe is a fantastic dinner to add to your monthly menu. Tofu is made from pressed soybeans, and is high in protein and is anti-inflammatory

Tofu also has a long list of health benefits, so it’s great to add to lots of meals. I have dozens of tofu recipes here on The Herbeevore, it’s one of my favorite ingredients to cook with! I love enjoying crispy baked tofu in the oven, blending it into a flavorful sauce for vegetables, or scrambling it up for breakfast.
