I’ve gone vegan, once again. But this time, it looks like it is going to be my new lifestyle. I’ve found that my body will only function properly in an all plant based diet, and so from this point forward, my recipes will be, well, without any animal products.
Soooo…to kick things off, I made a delicious wrap that will make you keep eating and dreaming about it. Recipe below
History of Wraps
A wrap is a variation of a sandwich: a sandwich has two distinct layers which are the top and bottom pieces of bread. A wrap, on the other hand, is one piece that completely surrounds the content of the wrap.
Mexicans, Armenians, Middle Easterners, Greeks and Turks have been eating wraps since before the 1900s. Mexicans refer to them as burritos, and they come in different ingredient varieties, primarily wheat flour or corn.

- 1 can garbanzo beans

- 2 whole wheat tortilla wrap
- 1 small tomato
- 2 tsp McCormick Mesquite Season (or chili powder)

Drain garbanzo and set aside. Chop tempeh strips into small pieces and set aside in a bowl. Cut red peppers into thin slices, set aside. Slice tomato into 4 pieces and remove the inside seeds. Set aside. Heat a skillet or a non-stick pan with olive oil until medium hot. Add tempeh pieces and stir for 1 minute, add peppers and stir for another minute and a half. Add garbanzo beans and mesquite season and stir. Lower heat and let simmer for two minutes. Turn off heat.
Chop cilantro, set aside. Cut avocado in half, remove seed, and with a spoon, scoop the insides and put in a blender. Add veganaise and chopped cilantro and mix until smooth. Remove and pour into bowl (this can be refrigerated used in other sandwiches)
Assembling (you might want to add foil to bottom so chickpeas won't fall everywhere)
Warm the tortilla in the microwave for 20 seconds in a glass plate. Remove and add a piece of foil to the bottom of tortilla. Add garbanzo mix, tomatoes, and avocado cream on top. Wrap it and enjoy it!
