Spiced Tempeh, Quinoa, and Hummus Wrap

Who doesn’t love a good veggie hummus wrap? 🙂 Of course, as a vegan/vegetarian lunch staple, I’ll admit they can get a little repetitive. Here’s an idea that might just get you out of a hummus wrap rut.

It takes a little night-before prep, but are super quick and easy to assemble while packing lunch in the morning. This recipe makes two wraps.

Ingredients

  • 1 8 oz package tempeh
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic (or 1/2 tsp garlic powder)
  • 1/4 tsp coriander
  • 2 tbs soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • 3/4 cup water or vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup hummus of your choice
  • your favorite tortilla, pita, flatbread, or lavash
  • your favorite sandwich veggies; i used cucumber, carrots, spring mix, onion, and alfalfa sprouts


Directions

To cook the quinoa, stir the quinoa and water/vegetable broth in a pot. Bring to a boil, uncovered, and then reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer until the water is absorbed and quinoa is no longer crunchy, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare the tempeh. Heat oil in a medium pan over medium heat. Add the garlic, coriander, and soy sauce. Crumble in the tempeh, or cut it into bars if you like. Cook until browned, about 10 minutes.

To assemble the wrap, spread the hummus on the tortilla. Make a pile in the middle of all your veggies and top with the tempeh and quinoa. That way it gets all nice and mixed up. 🙂 Cut in half, throw into a tupperware or wrap in foil, and you’re out the door!

  1. ooooh, i’m going to try a variation of this! i’m trying to incorporate more hummus in my life… i just never know what to do with it! thanks for the idea – and MMMM! sprouts make any sammich or wrap so much better!

    • Definitely do! I usually just use hummus as a dip for veggies, or on crackers with cheese…i’m just addicted to the stuff. I love sprouts too! Have you tried growing your own? I’ve heard it’s easy and a fraction of the cost of buying them.

      • i tried a garden this year… no sprouts, yet. other plants not holding up too well 😦 my thumb needs to be greener.. i hear it’s easy as well, can even do it in mason jars… i think it’s a good time of year to be buying starter plants – do you have a whole foods near you?

        • I do have a Whole Foods close by! I didn’t now they had starter plants. My mother-in-law gave me some mason jars to sprout in, but I need to spend some good quality time with Google before I can figure it out. 😉 My thumb isn’t remotely green either…
