what do you generally use for your wraps?  flatbread or are you more of a tortilla person.  i've been wanting to try the green tortillas but haven't yet
I guess I'm more of a tortilla person. The green ones are good. They dont taste much different actually. Flatbread is good too, just less readily available for me...

I make a chick pea thing that my neices & nephew love on crackers.
I drain & rinse chieck peas, smash em  in a bowl with some roasted garlic, a squirt of lemom juice & salt & peper to taste.  Realy good as a snack on crackers.   I love it on a whole wheat tortilla with fresh spinach.   =)

Any hints for becoming vegan??  I've been a lacto-ovo for 13 years and have been wanting to go vegan on a temporary basis (to detox myself) for awhile.  It bugs me how much my body craves dairy.  I work a very hectic schedule and am married to an anti-vegetable/beans guy.  I also live in the midwest where there are few places to go out and eat vegan.  Thoughts?

If you add Tahini it would be hummus

I just discovered the amazing "mock tuna salad"

1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed

2 Tablespoons Veganaise, or mayo or other vegan mayo

2 Tablespoons Sweet Relish

1 Teaspoon Brown Spicy Mustard

Some Sea Vegetable Flakes, Kelp Powder (optional)

Salt and Pepper (to taste)

Acually, the whole thing is to taste, I like it a little on the sweet relish side. 

Anyway, mash up the chickpeas, add the mayo, relish, mustard, salt and pepper, and kelp if you got it (gives a more fishy taste).  This stuff seriously has a texture like tuna.  Sure, it's been a long, LONG time since I have had tuna, but it's close enough for me.

Serve chilled on bread of choice.  I've been eating this stuff with some melty vegan cheese on a pita for an ultimate mock tuna melt.  I had a horrible experience with Tuno, and this satisfies my craving for tuna salad,  It's great as a take-along lunch, or a quick snack!

Or, I go with a pita/veggie wrap thing; hummus on the side so it doesn't get soggy.  Also, Ithird/fourth/tenth the fake deli meat.  I make a sammich, and use tiny jars for my veganaise and mustard so the bread isn't soggy.  Add an organic apple juice box and a bowl of fruit and you got a vegan lunch!  Veggie wraps with vegan cream cheese are really yummy, too!  Or you could try cooked and rechilled mock duck marinated in greek oil/seasoning and use it as fake lamb in a gyro!  This is sooooo yummy!


Oh, and by the way, much to my dismay, almost all breaded fake chicken  nuggets and patties are NOT vegan (eggs in the breading).  However, a brand called "Health Is Wealth" makes vegan "Buffalo Wings."  They are soooooo good.   Cheesy

I also reccommend Fantastic Foods Soup Bowls.  http://fantasticfoods.com/

They are ALL vegetarian, and most vegan.  A lot of the soups are ramen noodles with veggie broth and veggies, and some are more substantial, like split pea soup. 

Sorry for the SUPER long reply.  I get really excited discussing Vegan Food!!!!!

Ooooh!  And I forgot to mention cookies!  You've gotta have cookies with a lunch, hehee!!!

Alternative Baking Company http://www.planetdistribution.com/alternativebaking/index.cfm

They make THE BEST vegan cookies EVER.  I almost had an orgasm when I tasted the Snickerdoodl cookie.  Seriously, my boyfriend (also vegan) was like, "Should I leave you two alone?"  Soooooooooooo good.  Soft!  Chewy!  Lots of flavors!  And Calories :/  but it's a nice treat once in a while. 

Newman O's are a nice alternative to Oreo's.  I keep hearing that Oreo's are vegan, then they aren't, then they are, then they're not, so I gave up and eat Newman O's.  Ginger O's are the best.  It's like a ginger snap plus an oreo.  yum!  Ok.  Now I'll stop.

I told you I freak out about Vegan Food.  Food is my porn, I love it too much and can discuss it/look at websites about it all day long!!!!  Grin

Not at all...it's a derived from sesame seeds, it's a sesame seed paste.  Popular for Hummus....babaganus h, etc; Middle easter/Mediterranean dishes..
Also for wraps...you can look into the middle eastern flat bread callled Lavash.  I love eating that with the Avjar spread.


Here's the link your grocer doesn't carry it:  http://chefshop.com/itemdesc.asp?Camefrom=Search&Root=itemDesc&CartId=9-EVEREST-594202VPYQP400&ic=1528&tpcZZZ=

Cheers
