    Vegan Shawarma Wrap

    This recipe comes from Liveakindly – it uses mock duck by Companion. This company only uses non-GMO wheat gluten, and the only extra ingredients are oil, sugar, soy sauce, and salt. You can get this is most Asian supermarkets. It does not taste like duck; it’s more the texture is formed like duck. It was quite taste. I used 1/2 for this and 1/2 for another recipe.

    Tzatziki:

    • 4 oz of vegan yogurt
    • 1 tbsp olive oil
    • Juice of 1 lemon
    • Salt & pepper to taste
    • 1 cucumber
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 2 tablespoons Toffuti sour cream
    • Mock Duck:
    • 1 can of mock duck
    • 1 tsp smoked paprika
    • 2 tsp onion powder
    • 3 tbsp Tamari
    • Black
    • 2 tsp garlic powder
      Additional Wrap Ingredients:
    • Pita wraps, toasted
    • Chopped tomatoes
    • Shredded red cabbage
    • Sliced cucumber
    • Chopped lettuce
  • For the tzatziki:
  • Grate cucumber and squeeze excess juice out. Mix all ingredients together and pop into the fridge.
  • For the mock meat:
  • Drain and slice the mock duck thinly, then mix well with all the mock duck ingredients to coat evenly.
  • Fry in a little oil until it starts to get brown and crisp up.
  • To Assemble the Wrap
  • Pile on the mock duck and wrap filling ingredients into the (toasted) wraps or pitas. Drizzle on the tzatziki 
  • Serves 2 – 4
