Crispy Gardein "Chick'n" Wraps

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. If that is indeed true, Mel of Mel's Kitchen Cafe you should be sincerely flattered as I did a vegan version of your Crispy Chicken Wraps. Delicious!

I would be remiss not to mention  Gardein , Daiya, Tofutti and Vegenaise. While being vegan does not have to be hard, they certainly make it a little bit easier!


Crispy Gardein "Chick'n" Wraps

4 Gardein Chick'n Scallopini, thawed and chopped
1 cup Daiya cheddar style shreds
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/3 cup Vegenaise vegan mayo
2 tbsp Tofutti vegan sour cream
3 green onions finely chopped
2 tsp hot sauce
1 tsp olive oil
4 whole wheat tortillas (12")
Salt and pepper to taste
Cooking spray

In a saute pan over medium heat the olive oil and add the Gardein.  Saute until lightly browned and warmed through.

In a large bowl mix the mayo, sour cream, cilantro, hot sauce, green onions and Gardein. Season with salt and pepper.

Place about 1/4 of the Daiya cheddar on a flour tortilla leaving about a 1/2 inch border.  Place 1/4 the Gardein mixture down the center of the cheese. Fold the tortilla onto itself into thirds leaving the ends open.

Spray the wraps with cooking spray and place seam side down in a  saute pan sprayed with cooking oil and heated over medium heat. Spray the top of the wrap with cooking oil. When the bottom browns and the cheese starts to melt flip and allow to brown on the other side (about two minutes per side).

Serve immediately.

    1. Please let me know how you like it if you do try it!

  3. I made this for lunch with a few minor changes to serve with a Corn Chowder, oh my gosh! Delicious! Definitely will be doing again. Thanks for a wonderful quesadilla.
