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! =)
