Meatless Day Challenge – What do you do with tofu tempeh

Meatless Day Challenge

Meatless Day Challenge

Tofu Trek is a new tofu/vegetarian stall in Victoria market. Most likely a recent change of hand. There are more varieties of tofu and tempeh than before. What caught my eye was a soy based tofu tempeh and bought 2 tubs. I love tofu and tempeh. It works as a great substitute for meat. Plus, we are taking cue from Mellie of tummyrumbles where she does a Meatless Monday and so we  decided to do a Meatless Day at least once a week. This will be the first week that we are kicking off this challenge.

This is so easy to put together. Not sure if it is even considered a recipe? But with everything else going on, weekday meals have to be kept very simple, quick and easy.

Yes. I have over stuffed the wrap but who cares. I am home so messiness and greed is not an issue ;)

Happy holiday season everyone. Eat and drink lots but be safe :)
