ready to go!

alisa at one frugal foodie is getting radical!

after reading her local grocery advertisements and getting totally miffed at what the market was promoting as back-to-school foods (all processed junk!), she is fighting the system and making an e-book for anyone looking to feed their kids (or themselves) healthier lunches and avoid all that processed junk.  she sent out a call to her readers (like, a million of them: she’s totally famous!) to suggest healthy, easy, clean foods to feed to the little ones.

i was one of the bloggers who answered, and was totally stoked that she picked three of my recipes to be included in the book.  two recipes i have posted before, trail mix cookies and banana coconut muffins, but this is a new recipe that i am submitting.  i eat these little wraps whenever i am too starving too cook, or when just in a hurry (running to work, appointments, or surfing), or when i need to use up some leftovers from the fridge.  this method has worked for leftover everything, even sometimes soba noodles or other random foods.  if some of the combinations made from leftovers might seem a bit wacky, just trust me, everything tastes great with this dressing- even if there is an existing sauce on the leftovers!  just mix it up!  one of my favorite combinations is tofurky and quinoa, tossed with other veggies and steamed kale.

quick & easy tofurky wraps

(makes one wrap; adjust for number of total wraps)

1 tortilla (wheat, sprouted, etc; not a corn tortilla)
1/2 cup cooked grains (quinoa, brown rice)
1/4 cup cooked veggies
1/2 cup cooked leafy greens
3-4 slices of tofurky, or leftover tofu or tempeh
3 slices avocado
salt & pepper to taste

lay the tortilla on the plate, cover the middle with tofurky slices (or leftover tofu).  then add the grains, then avocado, cooked veggies, and the leafy greens on top.  cover the filings with the dressing and dust with salt & pepper if you would like.  wrap it up in aluminum foil, making one end very tight so that it can be eaten while being unwrapped while keeping all the fillings inside.

homemade goddess dressing

2 tbsp sesame tahini
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp braggs liquid aminos or soy sauce
dash of honey or agave
pinch black pepper
1-2 tbsp olive oil

mix all ingredients in a bowl until it reaches a nice smooth texture; there should be a good creamy consistency and a good balance of flavors; adjust salty/sour/sweet to taste by adding more of braggs/lemon/honey to balance the dressing. If it starts to separate, add more water to make it smooth again.
