These wraps were yummy, but I would alter the ingredient ratios somewhat. Because both the tomatoes and tapenade are such bold flavors, I might recommend choosing one and not the other. I also think there was a little too much watercress, and would use 2 tofu slices per wrap, not one. It didn't seem worthwhile to cook the tofu in the lemon juice mixture, and I would omit it or use it as a marinade first, rather than just cooking the tofu in it for 1 minute.
