Sandwiches and Wraps
Baby arugula livens up the flavor of these simple wraps featuring baked tofu, crisp cucumber, and olives. The combination of flavors makes this one of my favorite wraps — they’re so tasty, and make a great portable or at-home lunch. You can also make it for dinner and serve with soup, baked potatoes or sweet potatoes and/or corn on the cob, depending on appetite. Photos by Evan Atlas.
Chickpeas and kale are a tasty team, and this combination makes a great spread for bread, a filling for pita bread or a wrap (along with some tender lettuce and sliced tomatoes), or layered scoop of it on a sturdy flatbread and served open-faced. For a nice warm weather meal, this is great served with any sort of potato salad and a simple fruit medley. This makes about 2 to 2 1/2 cups.

This hearty bahn mi filling of golden scrambled tofu packed in a toasted baguette is too good to eat only for breakfast—it also makes a casual but incredible weeknight meal.

This chickpea salad recipe is super easy and completely delicious; it takes only about 15 minutes to make, and there are so many ways to serve it — as a sandwich, appetizer, or dolloped into a lettuce leaf. The hint of sweet pickle relish really gives this preparation a great flavor! See suggestions following the recipe. Recipe contributed by Sharon Nazarian, from Big City Vegan.

Pairing the great flavors of avocado and chickpeas, this tasty sandwich spread was inspired by the avocado tartine offered at the restaurant chain Le Pain Quotidien. These eateries are all over NYC and are spreading elsewhere, which is great, as I’m completely addicted to that sandwich. Here’s an easy way to recreate it at home — also a good thing, as I’m quite addicted to avocado, plain or embellished. Photos by Hannah Kaminsky. more→
This easy wrap is a longtime family favorite. Barbecue-flavored seitan contrasts deliciously with cool avocado and leafy greens. Like most wraps, it’s a salad disguised as a sandwich. It’s easy to make, fun to eat, and go well with just about anything — soups, potatoes, fresh corn, pasta salad, salsa and chips — any way you serve it, it’s a great meal. Need only one wrap? Cut the recipe in half. Or to serve four, double the recipe. You can substitute tempeh or tofu for the seitan. Photos by Hannah Kaminsky. more→
