A few weeks ago, the folks at Tumaro's Tortillas sent me a few samples of their massive flavored tortilla wraps. Though I love a good sandwich, I'm a huge fan of the wrap. There's something about eating your sammich fillin's burrito-style that excites my inner-Mexican food lovin' child. And here lately, I've had trouble finding a decent wrap that isn't a) too small to hold all my fillin', b) loaded with white flour, or c) too healthy-tasting for its own good. A recent experience with Ezekial sprouted grain wraps left much to be desired.
Now, the Tumaro's Tortillas aren't perfect in the ingredient department. Some contain enriched bleached flour, partially hydrogenated oils, and other unpronounables. But at least the vegan flavors are clearly marked with a "V," and the chewy, soft texture is spot on. They come in 8" and 10" inch sizes, so they're certain to hold all your stuff.
My favorite flavor out of the three samples was the 10-inch Black Bean Wrap. I loved the dark color, and it was the perfect vessel for this Hummus Veggie Wrap:
I loaded the wrap with Cedar's Roasted Garlic and Chive Hummus, romaine lettuce, cucumbers, bell peppers, carrots, green olives, and radish sprouts. And then I topped all that with spicy sriracha:
I also loved the 8-inch Multigrain Wrapable. It's advertised as "low in carbs," which I could care less about (carbs are fuel, people! eat them!). But it felt a little healthier thanks to the addition of oat fiber, soy flour, and whole wheat flour. I used the wrap for a quick Peanut Butter, Banana, and Agave Breakfast Wrap:
The other sample Tumaro sent was in a mysterious, clear plastic sealed bag with no label. I've tried emailing the nice lady who offered to send the samples to find out what the flavor is, but I haven't heard back. It looks (and tastes) a little like Whole Wheat, and they do offer a 10-inch whole wheat wrap ... so that's what I'll assume for now.
I used the mystery wrap for a gigantuan Brown Rice & TVP Burrito:
Brown rice, beefy-flavored TVP (a basic recipe from my cookbook), Daiya cheddar shreds, avocado, tomato, lettuce, and salsa. Mmmm ... wholesome and oh so filling!
Even though Tumaro's uses a few ingredients I'm not crazy about, I'd buy them anyway. Probably not all the time. But taste-wise and texture-wise, these are best wraps I've tried. Move over, Ezekial.
