This Easy Vegan Buffalo Chick’n Wrap uses the TikTok tortilla wrap hack which is a fun and brilliant way to assessable and consume a delicious wrap.
Tiktok Tortilla Wrap Hack:
Instead of placing all your ingredients down the center of the wrap and rolling it up, you make a cut from the center of the tortilla down to one edge. From there you fill the different quadrants with ingredients and then fold it up into a triangle that can be enjoyed as is or heated in a pan. I recommend heating if/when you are using cheese, so the cheese gets nice melty.
I have made this easy vegan buffalo chick’n wrap recipe using Violife shreds and Chao cheese slices and both products worked great in terms of meltiness and flavor.
Soy Curl Chick’n:
Soy curls are made by Butler Foods, and they are a great alternative to animal proteins like chicken and meat. Soy curls are made from 1-ingredient: whole soybeans, which makes them a good source of both protein and fiber. They have a meaty texture similar to seitan and are a good option for those who need to follow a gluten-free diet (as seitan is made from wheat gluten). But even if you love and eat gluten – soy curls will not disappoint!
Purchasing and Storing Soy Curls:
You can buy Soy curls directly from the Butler Foods website or order from Amazon. I started with buying the 8-ounce bags and more recently started ordering the 12 lb. bulk box.
Per Butler’s website and recommendations for storing: “Soy Curls™ are an all-natural product and do not contain any preservatives or additives. Keep them refrigerated or frozen to keep them fresh.”
Preparing Soy Curls:
You must hydrate soy curls prior to cooking them on the stove or baking in the oven. This is extremely simple and only takes 8-10 minutes. All you need to do is add the soy curls to a bowl and add enough water that the soy curls are covered. After ~8-10 minute you drain the excess water and can cook with the hydrated soy curls.
Choose your favorite buffalo/wing sauce, homemade or store bought. I used the Primal Kitchen Buffalo Sauce for this recipe. Another popular brand found in most stores, that is also vegan, is Sweet Baby Ray’s® Buffalo Wing Sauce. Alternatively, you can easily make your own buffalo sauce, there are many recipes available online, you will need: a hot sauce like Franks Red Hot, vegan butter, and some cayenne pepper. A splash of white vinegar is also common and makes it tangier.
