Notes:

For best results you can make in advance all the parts of this recipe and combine together at meal time! 
 
Tempeh is a high protein plant food that can be easily marinated and prepared. It is naturally grain free and I recommend using varieties made from chickpeas or lupin beans for best results with this recipe. These beans are also anti-inflammatory and have an enjoyable flavor. Chickpea tempeh has 31g of protein per cup! Tempeh also features a probiotic developed during the natural fermentation process when tempeh is created making tempeh very easy to digest.
This rich and flavorful recipe has 3 parts which can also be integrated into other recipes in your weekly food planning.  First you must create the buffalo sauce to marinate and cook the tempeh in. Then you will want to prepare the tahini spread which is fast and simple to prepare making this a great go to spread for adding a fast preservative free spread to any meal. Finally you will combine these two recipes with fresh vegetables in your choice of wrap for a delicious meal in minutes.
 
When it comes to wraps you have a few options, my favorite being grain-free coconut wraps like these from Sunfood Nutrition. These have a nice flavor and density for hand-held preparations: https://www.sunfood.com/food/coconut-wraps.html
