Asian Gardein Chick'n Wraps

My husband found some new meatless products at the Albertsons by our house called Gardein. I was shocked to see that they actually looked not only edible on the packaging but also really yummy. He bought three to try: buffalo wings, chick'n strips, chick 'n scallopini and crispy tenders.

Gardein describes their dishes as a range of tasty plant-based foods with a meaty texture. They are made from soy, wheat and pea proteins, vegetables and ancient grains. Gardein is healthy and completely animal and dairy free - which is perfect for vegetarians, vegans and the occasional meat eater who wants to try a healthy alternative.

I was pleasantly surprised by the taste as is, but was also happy I had a some new meatless products to work into my recipes.

Try out this one below. Definitely a hit with my husband.

Asian Chick'n Wraps
Ingredients:

  • 1 package of gardein chick'n strips
  • 2 cloves of garlic - chopped
  • 1/2 medium onion - chopped
  • 1/4 cup of soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup of white wine
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground coriander

  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon of sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon of hot mustard
  • 1 teaspoon of red chile paste - if you like it spicy


For the chick'n wraps, mix all the liquid and spices in a bowl and then pour over your chick'n strips in a large plastic bag to marinade for around 20 minutes. Next, pour all in a large saucepan and cover and cook for around 10-15 minutes.

For the dipping sauce, combine all ingredients in a medium bowl, stir until dissolved. Once chick'n is ready, use the Romaine lettuce leaves as your wrap. Spoon in some chick'n, add some sauce and roll up to eat. You can add bean sprouts or chopped peanuts for an added crunch.
