BBQ Teriyaki Tempeh Wraps

Sometimes, cravings strike, and when they do, I gotta give in. On this particular evening, I had a strong desire for a wrap stuffed with sauteed veggies and tempeh, but wanted something kind of rich and spicy. I opened up my fridge, and much to my delight saw a full bottle of bbq sauce and my Trader Joe’s Soyaki sauce. Of course, a fresh package of tempeh also was waiting to be used as well.

This recipe is super easy and tasty, I pretty much threw it together within five minutes. As I was super hungry, I decided to wrap up the yumminess, and line the wrap with the always delicious Veganese. If you are looking for a lighter meal, you can simply saute some kale with a bit of fresh lemon juice, black pepper and a dot of vinegar/oil and serve the tempeh and veggies over the kale.  Otherwise, enjoy this filling, rich and delectable treat.

*BBQ Teriyaki Tempeh Wraps*

What you’ll need:

1 block tempeh, cut into small cubes.

1 tablespoon Earth Balance (preferably soy free) butter

2 tablespoons Soyaki from Trader Joe’s (or 1 tablespoon teryaki/1 tablespoon soy sauce)

3 tablespoons BBQ sauce

1/4 cup spinach

2 ripe tomatoes, sliced

2 tablespoons Veganese (the Soy-Free variety is tasty, you can also find a dairy free/egg free mayonnaise if you cannot locate Veganese)

2 tablespoons Soyaki

2 sprouted wraps (or regular if you cannot find sprouted, I had the Ezekiel brand)

1/2 cup chopped broccoli

Melt the butter on the skillet on medium heat. Add the spinach, cook on medium until the spinach has wilted. Add all other ingredients,  and stir together. Simmer on medium heat until everything has become tender. This should take about 8 minutes. Once cooking has completed, turn off the heat. Line your wraps with the Veganese, and add veggies and tempeh, roll up the wrap. Try to keep the veggies and tempeh in the center so you can successfully roll ‘er up! =)

About govegetarianista86

After transitioning to a meatless diet two years ago, Lauren and I had no choice but to learn lots of great vegetarian recipes---and fast---after all, we always loved great food. The reason for our decision to omit meat and most dairy products from our lives was quite simple. A vegetarian diet is healthier, kinder, and ironically much cheaper than one with meat. We created this website to show that being a vegetarian is one of the easiest and most rewarding lifestyles to partake in, and hope that both vegetarians and aspiring vegetarians alike will visit Go-Vegetarianista habitually. :) About the authors: Nadya Rousseau is an actor/writer/producer residing in Beverly Hills, CA. She moved to Los Angeles almost five years ago at the age of nineteen to pursue her career and to escape the boredom of her small town. As maintaining a svelte figure is often pivotal in the entertainment industry, she finds she has no trouble staying slim and healthy as a vegetarian. In addition to loving good food and helping others, she enjoys engaging in sarcastic banter--keep an eye out for her frequent sardonic jokes--you'll surely be amused!! Lauren Rheims, is a native of Pomona, CA, and now resides in Beverly Hills, CA. She is a fashion and nature photographer, and of course loves shooting pictures of super yummy food! Lauren at first was apprehensive about becoming vegetarian, being of Creole descent, enjoying delicious seafood and meat, was more or less second nature. However after she discovered just how easy it was to enjoy the same delectable meals sans meat, she was thrilled! Lauren is excited to show everyone the simplicity and allure of vegetarian fare--and just how fun it can be!
