Smokey Tempeh and Mustard Wrap

Generally, Saturday is a resting day from two long shifts and in preparation for two more. However, this Saturday, I was able to show a few condos and it looks really promising for an forthcoming offer!

For lunch, I whipped up a great wrap that really hit the spot. It was an awesome one-player food that was filling and light in the ridiculous Atlanta heat. I highly recommend this if you are looking for something quick and easy but tasty and full of flavor. The mustard dip is a strong flavor and the liquid smoke gives the tempeh a light bacon like taste.

Smokey Tempeh and Mustard Wrap

1 tortilla
2 peices of green leaf lettuce
2 tablespoons of tempeh
2 tablespoons of cucumber (matchsticked)
1 1/2 tablespoon of "honey" mustard dipping sauce
1 1/2 tablespoon of tomato (diced)
1 tablespoon of red onion (sliced)
1 tablespoon of carrot (matchsticked)
1/2 tablespoon of oil
1 teaspoon of liquid smoke

In a saute pan, heat the oil to med heat. Meanwhile, cut the tempeh into strips about the 1 inch in length and 1/8 inch thick. Once the oil is hot, add the tempeh, liquid smoke, and onions and fry for 5-8 minutes flipping the tempeh once.

While the tempeh is frying, spread the "honey mustard dipping sauce" over half of the tortilla. Then flatten the lettuce leaves over the mustard dip, add the tomato, cucumber and carrot. Once the tempeh is brown on both sides, add the onions and tempeh over the top of the vegetables. Fold up the bottom of the tortilla and roll into wrap form.
