Burgers & Wraps
This collection of vegan wraps and burgers will complement any tailgate, picnic, lunch, or dinner plans you might have. The fillings are flexible, so don’t hold…
Loaded Vegan Chalupas with Chipotle Queso
While traditional chalupas tend to be heavy on animal products and oil, our vegan version—which may remind you of a popular chain restaurant’s taco wraps—relies on a savory tofu and pinto bean filling to replace the meat. A homemade chipotle queso sauce adds delicious plant-based cheesiness to the chalupas, and fresh pico de gallo salsa provides refreshing contrast to the crispy tortillas.

Jambalaya-Style Collard Wraps
Get classic Cajun flavors wrapped up in the South’s favorite leafy green when you make a batch of these scrumptious collard wraps.

Vegan Barbacoa Fajitas
In traditional Mexican cooking, barbacoa refers to meat that’s slow-cooked in savory seasonings and shredded to fill tacos, enchiladas, or burritos. In this delectable plant-based version, portobello mushrooms and peppers take the place of meat but retain the classic smoky, chipotle-infused sauce that gives barbacoa its outstanding flavor. Homemade pickled onions add a delicious tang and bright pop of color to the dish. Top each fajita with lettuce, salsa, cilantro, or any favorite garnishes.

Pair them with bell peppers and onions that have been sautéd in smoky taco seasoning, top everything with lettuce and pico de gallo salsa, and these plant-powered tacos will quickly become a staple recipe in your house.
Tortilla Roll-Ups with Lentils and Spinach
These tasty finger foods get their Moroccan flavor from ras el hanout, a classic North African spice blend of cumin, ginger, cinnamon, and other spices that you may have tasted in chickpea stews or tagines. Look for it in the supermarket spice aisle, or make your own.
