Thai Collard Green Lettuce Wrap Recipe -- A healthy vegan sandwich made with marinated tofu and a tangy peanut sauce.

Hello my good friends!
I'm back after my brief hiatus this week. My broski was in town so I spent some time with him while I could. That and I totally forgot to take any pictures of my meals, besides my morning tea from the lovely miss Heather.
But that's okay, because I'm back and with a GIVEAWAY!
The lovely folks at Nasoya reached out to me about trying out their new line of Nasoya TofuBaked products. They are already marinated and baked, ready to be thrown into any salad or stir fry for those times when pouring a bowl of cereal or slapping some butter on bread is your next line of defense for "cooking dinner".
Since I can never press the ish out of my tofu enough with my stack of cookbooks and giant cans of beans, I was so ready to try these out. They come in two flavors, Teriyaki or Sesame Ginger. I was more partial to the teriyaki since it seemed to have just a bit more flavor than the sesame.
I love sneaking in my LGV aka leafy green vegetables anyway I can, so why not have your wrap and LGV too!
And lesbehonest, I just wanted another excuse to make this peanut sauce. I could literally slap it on a washcloth and call it dinner. Literally.
And the whole meal takes about 5 minutes, which makes for a quick and easy lunch that will satisfy you much longer than a bowl of cheerios...or a washcloth.

The recipe makes enough for two wraps, since making all my recipes for one seems a little sad. Plus it makes enough for lunch tomorrow!

My go-to for lunch is typically a salad piled high with lots of random ingredients or leftover dinner (veggie-filled), and fruit. LOVE Nasoya products and have been anxiously awaiting to try the new marinated ones!!

I've only made a collard wrap once! But I totally need to do it again! Such a fun grain-free option 😉
My favorite go-to lunch is a salad! They are easy to throw together with whatever you have on hand. Also, they are definitely a healthy option. Thanks for this...it sounds great : )
My favorite go-to lunch is a huge sandwich, filled with nice veggies and cheese on sturdy bread.
I've been having hot soups lately to battle out the cold weather! :]
I do consider all the concepts you have presented in your post. They are really convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are very quick for novices. May you please prolong them a bit from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.|
Lunch for me is usually a big salad with a piece of fruit on the side or leftover soup, chili, or stew during crockpot season (AKA now haha)
My go-to lunch is usually a tuna or chicken salad sandwich
