If you’ve not been to Gillie’s in Blacksburg, you must go.

This eatery has been in operation since 1974 and caters to vegetarians and vegans with loads of wonderful, tasty dishes.

I tried their Peanut Tofu Wrap, and Noah Gillie, kitchen manager and son of owner, Renae Gillie, was nice enough to share the recipe.

Actually, it is two recipes. He gives us the recipe for the flavorful peanut sauce and one for putting together the tofu wrap itself.
