Summer Tempeh Avocado Strawberry Wrap
Sometimes in the Summer you don’t feel like heating up the oven and opt for sandwiches instead. Although the possibilities are endless, I always like a good tempeh sandwich. If you haven’t heard of tempeh, it is a fermented soy product that is actually good for your gut! Just be sure to always buy organic when it comes to soy. I eat it for lunch often because it is a good source of protein and is heart healthy. The recipe I am sharing with you today might sound a little unusual but it is so delicious. It combines avocado, strawberries and arugula in a simple wrap with the tempeh and it is so good! Especially in the Summer! If you haven’t tried tempeh yet, this is a good way to do so!

- Toss the tempeh gently with the avocado oil and tamari in a bowl.
- Heat a ceramic pan over medium heat. Add the tempeh, and cook on one side until lightly brown, about 2 minutes. Then flip and cook the other side until lightly brown, about 2 minutes more. Remove from heat.
- To assemble the wraps, spread about 2-3 Tbsp of the guacamole onto the middle each tortilla in a line from top to bottom. Arrange the strawberries on top of that, then divide the tempeh between the 4, and top with arugula.
- Roll up, and enjoy!
