Smoky Tempeh Wrap

After reading Skinny Bitch, i've decided to start collecting some vegan recipes.
I'm already a vegetarian- however, I love eggs and cheese and eat at least one or both of these nearly every day.

I got lucky and stumbled up the blog, Healthy Happy Life, a couple weeks back.
The second I saw this recipe, I knew it had to be tried.

The flavor is great and it's super healthy!
I can't wait to make them again!

What you need:

Smokey Tempeh:
8oz. tempeh, sliced into cubes or logs
2-3 Tbsp liquid smoke
2 tsp chili powder
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tsp agave syrup
salt to taste (at least 1/2 tsp)

Citrus Carrot Slaw:
1 cup shredded carrots
1 large tangerine, peeled, sliced
1/4 tsp citrus zest
2 Tbsp tahini (I used a little extra)
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp agave syrup
1 Tbsp Vegenaise
1-2 tsp EVOO (optional)
salt to taste

2 XL Whole Wheat Wraps
2 cups baby greens


1.  Add all the liquid ingredients for the smoky tempeh in a large bowl.  Add the tempeh and toss well.
Allow the tempeh to marinate for at least 30 minutes or longer.

2.  Combine all the carrot slaw ingredients. Toss well.

3.  Coat the surface of a large skillet with EVOO and place on med-high heat burner.  When the pan is hot, add the tempeh and any additional marinade liquid. Saute for 2-3 minutes on each side.  The tempeh will begin to darken to a caramel color when it is ready.  
For a lighter version, omit the EVOO and bake instead.

4.  Assemble your wrap with a nice layer of greens, carrot slaw and several pieces of cooked tempeh.

5.  Fold up wrap, and enjoy!
(unless your like me, and ALWAYS add too much filling so you can't roll it up all the way)

super easy.  super delicious. super healthy.

You can also make this same wrap, but instead of tempeh, slice up a veggie burger instead!

Happy Friday Everyone!
Pin It!

This looks amazing! I would SO be vegetarian if I could, because I do not like meat at alllll, but being an O blood type I NEED it. Grrr.

Skinny Bitch did me in, too. Cheese was the last thing I gave up! I recommend Crazy Sexy Diet next--it's so informative with fun recipes. Plus, Kris Carr is amazing.

Thanks for sharing this recipe--it looks sooo good!

When I read Skinny Bitch I wanted to try being vegan too. I'm not a vegetarian, so it was a HUGE lifestyle switch. I only lasted for 5 days. I think I need to make the small step to being vegetarian and see how that works out.
