The Mother Of All Vegan Wraps

Ok truly, this was the best wrap ever. The little local vegan restaurant I keep raving about here in KC has a portobello wrap that we adore. They use all the fabulous local veggies they can get their hands on. The chef is incredibly creative. And because I can't afford to go there every day of my life like I want, I went to the farmer's market. This week I bought a little bit of just about everything. I think that I was in a bit of a veggie rut, buying the same stuff over and over again. Not this week I say! This wrap had portobellos, summer squash, red peppers, eggplant, kale, mustard greens, swiss chard, pumpkin greens, red onion, and garlic to boot (and probably other stuff I'm not remembering.) All I added was salt and pepper. I decided to leave all this beautiful vegetation to taste just like it tastes without me messing with it too much. Sometimes vegetables in all their vegtable-y goodness are strikingly delicious all on their own. I thinned a little vegan sour cream with lemon juice, and zig-zagged a little on just for looks mostly. This is the natural "Airborne" (that icky vitamin mixture we drink to not get sick). Surely the vitamins in this wrap would kick any would-be sicky germ's butt. I feel so good after eating stuff like this. Yummmmmmmm :)

I am pretty much every second. Lol! I tried to make wild rice meat. Whoa, not even CLOSE which made me appreciate FUD even more and the creativity that goes into each of those recipes. My new favorite is the Rainbow wrap which is just a bunch of raw veggies, but man is it good. I tried the Reuben (which a sandwich that I don't normally like). It like other things is made with Jack fruit (who the heck knows where to buy jack fruit anyway?) It was delicious and freaked me out how much like meat it looks. I still have more stuff to try!
