Try This Vegan Buffalo Ranch “Chicken” Wrap You Meat Eating Partner Will Love
With some big games coming up and Meatless Monday let’s think about options. Vegan Buffalo Ranch “Chicken” Wrap is a meal we have been having around here as my husband has been following the sports teams’ seasons get underway.
Sometimes vegan workarounds are almost too good to be true with regards to reworking a classic dish that you may have had in the past.
If you haven’t started incorporating mushrooms this recipe would be a great place to start.
My childhood memories of mushrooms are odd at best – slimy button mushrooms added into dishes that never seemed quite right. It’s no wonder that I wasn’t excited to cook with them.
Food Can Be a Powerful Tool for Creating Health
The food we eat has a major impact on our health, but the way we prepare it can also have an effect. Eating a diet high in processed foods, sugar, and unhealthy fats can lead to many health problems, such as obesity and heart disease. But what if I told you that changing just one of these factors could make all the difference? Just by cooking a meal with healthier ingredients, you can improve your health. Getting rid of heavy meats like pork or chicken that are classically in wraps can bring levity into your health. These Vegan Buffalo Ranch “Chicken” Wraps will take a little investment in time but could be a fun option for the family trying to blend goals.
This Wrap is Cruncy and Delicious and Phytonutrient Rich
You can add extra nutrients to this recipe by adding hemp and flax into the breading mixture. There are many variations of this and gluten-free bread crumbs are also available. If you wanted to avoid gluten, you could also use almond or coconut flour to ensure a little crunch is there.
I also find the extra flavor from the other elements is just wonderful.
For example, I love to put the Slaw on soup and sandwiches.
Salad or Wrap?
What is the best way to eat these tenders?
If you prefer a lower carb option, you can forgo the wrap and all these tasty ingredients to a wrap.
I like to lightly steam raw vegetables to make them more digestible when adding to a bowl like this.
No matter how you like to eat the ingredients, it is a fantastic option to use trumpet mushrooms as their texture and ability to blend with others flavors makes them a really enjoyable plant-based meatless option.
Most of the time, I get my mushrooms from our local Farmer’s Market and they have a wonderful variety.

These are the recipes that I eat every day in my plant-based kitchen. We don’t strive for perfection, we aim for nourishment that can sustain us for the work we feel called to do while on this planet. That includes thinking about sustainability, buying local, and creating food seasonally.
