Avocado & Tempeh Bacon Wraps

The "Avocado & Tempeh Bacon Wraps" (page 113), make a great lunch, or even a quick dinner if you have the tempeh bacon on hand. I used Lightlife brand tempeh based "Fakin' Bacon", which consists of soybeans, brown rice, spices, and seasonings, and no oil. It makes a great stand-in anywhere bacon is desired. These delicious wraps consist of tortillas or flat bread spread with vegan mayonnaise, filled with sautéed tempeh, lettuce, avocado and tomato. Sort of like a BLT deluxe, in a wrap!
"Keeping it McDougall Friendly" checklist:
ü     Omit the 2 tablespoons of oil when browning the tempeh; use a nonstick skillet instead.
ü     Use fat-free mayonnaise, either store bought or homemade (Vegan Mayonnaise).
ü     Use whole grain, oil free wraps.
