I love buffalo chicken. I love the burning of the hot sauce and the tang of the vinegar. Delicious. I am also a huge fan of blue/bleu cheese.
Seriously, as I was chopping the chunk I bought into a crumbly mess, I was eating pieces of it. Yes, I can eat chunks of moldy cheese.
Anyway, I found this recipe for buffalo tempeh wraps on The No Meat Athlete site. They guy is vegan and runs marathons. That’s pretty cool. While I am happy to try vegan recipes and have been doing it a lot lately, I am not interested in going completely vegan. Vegan websites, are a good recipe source, though!
1/4c Frank’s Hot Sauce (or more to your liking)
1T White vinegar (or more if you want it tangier)
1 lb Seitan (I used Westsoy brand chicken style; drained)
1/2 Cucumber, peeled and finely diced
1 Tomato, diced
2c Fresh spinach
2 oz Blue/Bleu cheese crumble
6oz yogurt (I used Redwood Hill Farm plain goat yogurt)
2c Matchstick carrots
Whole wheat tortillas (I used Maria and Ricardo’s 12 inch tortilla)
- Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Combine with hot sauce and vinegar. Add drained seitan and stir to coat. Sprinkle flour and stir until sauce thickens and coats ‘meat.’
- Combine yogurt, cheese and cucumber in a small bowl.
- Assemble wrap using one warmed tortilla and a quarter of all ingredients for each serving.
