It’s time to welcome back our Guest Blogger, Maddy Bellcroft. This article is Maddy’s last post in a series that has focussed on some of the vegetarian, vegan and dairy-free products you can find at Fresh Choice Nelson. But don’t worry, Maddy will be back in a few weeks time with more healthy eating inspiration. Take it away Maddy…
This final week of focus on the vegetarian, vegan and dairy-free aisle, highlights a few different brands, Tofuti Cream Cheese, Alamir Falafel and Living Goodness Krauts. When these are combined with my sundried tomato pesto recipe, they come together to make one delicious wrap.
For the Pesto
- 1 C sundried tomatoes (drained from oil)
- 1/2 C oil from sundried tomato jar
- 3 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1 Tbsp nutritional yeast, optional
- 1 C roasted almonds
- Salt to taste
To make the pesto combine sundried tomatoes, oil, garlic, nutritional yeast and roasted almonds in a food processor and pulse until the mixture is combined but still slightly chunky. If it looks a little dry add some extra oil. Taste and season with salt.
To Assemble the Wraps
- 1 pkt wraps
- 1 pkt Alamir falafel bites
- Tofuti cream cheese
- Lettuce greens
- Living Goodness Sauerkraut or kimchi
Preheat your oven to 200c and then bake the falafel bites for ten minutes. Fill the wraps with a spread of the cream cheese, sauerkraut (or kimchi), greens, falafel and dollops of the pesto. Roll up and enjoy!
