Wraps, 1-2 per person: eg Old El Paso fajitas OR Discovery tortillas - preferably wholemeal

Filling
Oil or oil spray
1 pack of plain tofu, cubed OR vegan chicken-style pieces such as Asda or Fry's
Stir-fry sauce, eg Tesco Black Bean sauce or Blue Dragon Garlic & Ginger (wok fry 3 mins)
1 pack of stir-fried vegetables
1 red pepper, sliced very small
6 spring onions, sliced small
1 large leek, chopped small
4 crushed garlic cloves or a big squeeze of garlic paste
1 jar of fajita sauce (El Paso, Discovery or other brand that is vegan)

Guacamole
2 ready-to-eat avocados
1 clove garlic, crushed OR ½ tsp garlic paste
Lime juice
Salt

To serve
Tomato salsa, from a jar or fresh tub 
Tub of Tofutti sour crème OR jar of vegan mayo, eg Plamil

 

Method: 

1. If using tofu, drain and gently squeeze as much water out as possible. Cut into cubes.

2. In a non-stick pan, cook the tofu or chicken-style pieces in a little oil or oil spray. Add the stir-fry sauce and set aside.

3. In a wok, fry all the vegetables for a few minutes. Add the fajita sauce just before the end.

4. Make the guacamole: peel the avocados, remove the stone and mash them up with a fork in a small bowl. Mix in the garlic, salt and lime juice, tasting and adding more if desired.

5. Warm the fajitas/wraps by wrapping them in a clean teatowel or kitchen paper – microwave for 20-30 seconds. Alternatively, wrap in foil and heat in a warm oven for 10-15 minutes. Put everything in separate dishes on table; everyone tucks in!
