How To, Kitchen Whispers

Wrap the VG way

There are thousands of ways you can fill in a wrap. And with so many VG options for fillings, it would be really hard to get bored of preparing these.

I’ve posted here a picture of one of my favorites, and quite simple, combinations for a wrap; but there are so many other ingredients out there you can mix and match !!

Here is how I do it


1. First, I pick a Wrap

Here are some options:

  • Tortilla Wrap
  • Whole Wheat Tortilla
  • Taco Shells
  • Pita Bread
  • Lettuce Wrap
  • Rice paper Wrap

….

2. Then, a Protein

Here are some options:

  • Chickpeas (in Hummus form/whole peas/Mashed)
  • Beans (all kinds)
  • Lentils
  • Edamame
  • Minced Soy
  • Quinoa
  • Ready-to-eat VG Alternatives
  • Tofu (fried, baked…)
  • Tempeh
  • Seitan

You can also ‘cover’ the protein part by picking protein-rich fillings/Spreads.

3. I fill it up  

Here are some options:

  • Veggie Medley Raw (for example: cucumber, tomato, red pepper, lettuce, kale, olives, avocado…)

  • Pickles
  • Greens (Rocket, Spinach, Kale, Purslane…)

4. I pick a Spread

Here are some options:

  • Guacamole
  • Hummus
  • Tahini
  • Hot Sauce
  • BBQ Sauce
  • VG Pesto Sauce
  • Sweet and Sour Sauce
  • Teriyaki Sauce
  • Soy Sauce
  • Mashed Peas
  • Tomato Salsa
  • Maple Mustard
  • Pomegranate Molasses

  • Miso
  • Truffle Sauce
  • Garlic and VG Mayo
  • VG Cheese alternative

5. I Spice it Up

Here are some options:

Herbs:
