When I travel it’s always fun to check out new gluten-free products in local grocery stores. It’s getting harder to find gluten-free products that meet my ever increasing requirements now that I also eat vegan. Most bread products are made with egg. I was happy to come across these cute little Sandwich Petals a few weeks ago and thought they’d make great veggie wraps.
They are shaped like flower petals. (How adorable is that???) And they come in three different flavors: Agave Grain (the original), Spinach Garlic Pesto, and Chimayo Red Chile (pictured here).
Since I was staying with family I didn’t have a fridge filled with my staples, so I played with a few ingredients to come up with a Vegan Mayo for my wrap. I loved what popped out of the Vitamix! And what a bonus that it was green!
Green Vegan Mayo
- 1 avocado
- 1 T. miso
- 1 small handful basil (or herb of your choice)
- 1 clove garlic
- juice of 1/2 lemon
Place all ingredients in a Vitamix or high-powered blender. Blend until creamy, stopping several times to scrape down the sides.
Yields 1 cup of mayo
Spread it on your favorite gluten-free or raw bread or wrap.
But how were the Sandwich Petals? The Chimayo Red Chili was really tasty. And I love the shape. There’s no extra bread to flip under, get in the way, or to create an empty bite like with an over-sized tortilla.
But as soon as I folded it over my fixings I realized that there was going to be a problem. The side started to crack.
And It just took one bite for the entire thing to break down the fold.
But to be fair, I do stuff my sandwiches with enough filling to call it a salad sandwich. If you’re a light sandwich stuffer, it might work better for you.
In fact, I did try less wrap stuffing, not just for product testing, but because I love this Green Vegan Mayo, and it did just fine.
So if you see a package of Sandwich Petals pick it up and let me know how it works for you.
