Creamy Mock Chicken, Avocado & Tomato Wraps

Creamy Mock Chicken

Just yummy… a simple, quick dish to please sceptical meat-eaters and just about anyone. You can pad this out with extra salad etc or just increase the amount of wraps per person for a quick but filling meal. If you don’t fancy wraps, try using a wholegrain such as brown rice, quinoa or a mixture. Make the grains from scratch – or just open one of those very convenient pouches of cooked grains that are everywhere now – Uncle Ben, Tilda, Merchant Gourmet and most supermarket own brands sell a good selection.

If you aren’t keen on vegan meats, use the tofu pieces. However, seitan/gluten ‘wheat meat’ has been used in the Orient for thousands of years and is tasty, low fat and full of protein – give it a try unless you’re truly allergic!

Did you know that V30 is run by a charity?

We create vital resources to help educate everyone – vegan veterans, novices and the v-curious alike – about vegan food, health and nutrition; as well as the plight of farmed animals and the devastating environmental impact of farming.

Through this work we have helped thousands of people discover veganism; but we want to reach millions more! We rely entirely on donations as we don’t get any government funding. If you already support us, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you are really making a difference! Please share our details with your friends and loved ones too, as every donation enables us to keep fighting for change.
