Easy Vegan Lentil Tahini Wrap Trader Joe's Style

There are so many great ingredients in a Trader Joe's. I try to go there at least once if not 3 times a month to get special items that only they carry to make meals we all enjoy. I didn't get ALL the ingredients in this recipe at TJ's. The tortillas, salad dressing, and Tahini are all TJ's brand but I recommend using those to replicate this amazing taste. Their Tahini is so flavorful and it the dressing compliments it so well on their soft, organic whole wheat wrap.

The other important thing in this recipe is the bacon avocado. I now realize this is like the holy grail of avocados and they are just not available to everyone all the time. I happened on one in my Farm Fresh to You order and I knew it when I cut it open and smelled that bacony aroma. Even a vegan knows this smell. It is amazing when it comes from the fruit of a tree! 

All of the fresh stuff - tomato, bacon avocado, onion, lettuce came from Farm Fresh to You here in CA. The lentils are BPA free canned Eden Foods (see shopping list below) but you can buy really great cold lentils near the ready to eat stuff in Trader Joe's, and you can find almost all the produce organic from TJ's as well. I just like to get my FFtY order every week to make life easier.

What You Need:
Trader Joe's Tahini Sauce
Trader Joe's Organic Olive Oil Whole Wheat Wrap
Trader Joe's Tuscan Italian Dressing
1/2 Avocado (if you are lucky enough to find a Bacon avocado - you are going to LOVE this!)
White Onion slices
Tomato Slices

What You Do:
Spoon the lentils next to the lettuce. Add tomato slices, avocado, and onion. Spoon on 3 large dollops of Tahini. Drizzle with Italian Dressing and season with salt and pepper to taste. Wrap it up and eat!

  1. I wish I lived near a Trader Joe's I have heard such good things about them.

  2. i love lentils can't wait to try this

  3. I'm not a vegan but this looks absolutely delicious!

  4. I'm not usually a fan of lentils, but this looks good, so I might try it.

  5. This is definitely not something I'd like to eat...however, I know a few people who would love to give it a try! I am a very picky eater, and don't like foods mixed together.

  6. OMGooooosh!! How yummy!! Now Im hungry lol!! I drive by Trader joes all the time!! I'll have to stop and pick some up so I can make this :)

  7. This looks so good to me but for some reason I can't seem to create stuff like this on my own!

  8. This looks so delicious! Thanks for the recipe!

  9. This isn't something I would eat but my son would absolutely love this he doesn't like meat but loves vegetables and beans

  10. This isn't something I would eat but my son would absolutely love this he doesn't like meat but loves vegetables and beans

  11. This looks amazing, unfortunately I have to go on a bit of a drive to get to my closest Trader Joe's.

  12. That looks amazing. I live outside of Atlanta and the nearest Trader Joes is a bit away so I have never been able to try out their food / groceries. I wish I lived in the city so I could try out all this goodness!

  13. This looks like a wonderful option for our meatless nights. We eat meatless 3 nights a week and I am slowly trying to up it to 4.
