Tofurky-Vegetable Wraps

Any kind of Tofurky slices would work in these wraps, but I particularly like the hickory smoked flavor.  If you're stumped on a vegan ranch dressing, try Organicville, available in health food stores or online.  I like to use whole wheat tortillas for an added nutrition kick, but white ones would work too.

  • 2 cups coarsely chopped hickory smoked Tofurky deli slices
  • 2 cups gourmet salad greens
  • 1/2 cup fresh corn kernels
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 3 tablespoons vegan ranch dressing
  • 4 (8-inch) flour tortillas
1. Combine the Tofurky, salad greens, corn, bell pepper, green onions, and ranch dressing in a bowl, tossing to coat.

2. Warm the tortillas according to package directions. Top each tortilla with 1 cup Tofurky mixture. Roll up and cut in half diagonally to serve.

This wrap was begging for a summery coleslaw on the side. Try this simple tangy coleslaw: in a bowl, combine 1/4 cup vegan mayonnaise, 1/4 cup plain non-dairy yogurt, 1 and 1/2 tablespoons vegan sugar, 2 teaspoons bottled prepared horseradish, 1 teaspoon dry mustard, and 1/4 teaspoon salt.  Toss with 8 ounces packaged cabbage-and-carrot coleslaw, then cover and chill until serving time.

Finish off your summery meal with bowls of raspberry sorbet - bonus points for fresh raspberries and mint as garnish.

Tasting Notes:
The combination of smoked Tofurky and ranch dressing is to die for, and tastes perfect wrapped up in a warm whole wheat tortilla. I would add more corn since it's at its summer peak right now, but the amounts of greens and bell pepper were just right. I believe there were a few herbs, such as dill, in the "mixed greens" I bought, which added exceptional flavor, so if your packaged greens don't contain herbs, consider sneaking some in. I would leave out the green onion, but everything else was exceptional.
