I was having one of those days where I wanted to eat something fresh and healthy without having to go to the store, which is NOT easy to accomplish. You know that moment when you’re standing in front of the open refrigerator trying to get creative with what you have?
Luckily, I had recently purchased some fresh veggies for a recipe a few days ago and had leftover purple cabbage, carrots, and bell peppers.
All I needed was a protein. After searching into the depths of the fridge I found a package of tempeh. I like to make fries with tempeh as a healthy alternative. Ok, what to do with all this? Wrap it up?
I made some tempeh fries and set those aside, and started making a dressing for the veggies.
I still had leftover miso paste and a fresh jar of tahini so I added some lemon juice and honey for a simple sauce to toss the veggies with. I only had spinach for greens, so no wrapping these in lettuce. I did have some rice paper so
I started soaking them, one by one and assembling my wraps.
After all my ingredients were wrapped up, I cut them in half and served them with a little sriracha on the side and lunch was made! This hardly ever works out this well for me, so I had to share.
