At any given time you could open the Don’t Fear the Vegan fridge and find the Tofurky hickory deli slices and their Italian sausage, though oddly enough there are very few recipes on the blog which include Tofurky products. Hubby and I were talking and decided that it was due to the fact that they were our go to foods when we didn’t have the time or energy to cook. Regardless, I decided to make a new recipe just for the occasion.
Need an appetizer for a holiday party? This would be perfect. Extremely easy to make and it looks festive. Plus the rolls tasted great!
This recipe will make 20 rolls.
2 lavash wraps
2 Tofurky Italian sausages
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup diced red onion
2 small cloves garlic
1/3 cup diced sun-dried tomatoes (packed in olive oil)
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 10 oz package of your favorite hummus (I used spicy red pepper)
40 basil leaves
Saute onions and garlic in olive oil until onions are translucent. Add Italian sausage and sun-dried tomatoes. Cook until sausage just begins to brown.
Put sausage mixture and all remaining ingredients (except lavash and basil) into a food processor and pulse until well combined and crumbly. Refrigerate for at least an hour.
Divide mixture in half and spread out on lavash rolls with a spatula. Top with basil leaves. Roll from wider side for smaller rolls which is what I did or the opposite way if you would like larger but less rolls. Cut in 1″ slices. Serve.
Now for the gift.
I have to say the people at Tofurky blew us away with their generosity. The little vegan has already asked if she could enter because she wants one of the gifts for herself. What are we giving away you ask? We have Tofurky lunch boxes for two lucky winners, filled with a package of their peppered jurky, a coupon for free product, a couple of pins, a sticker,and a temporary tattoo. Four other lucky winners will receive everything except the lunch boxes. That’s right, we will have 6 winners for today!
If you don’t win and still would like one of the awesome lunch boxes you can buy one here. All proceeds will be donated to non-profit organizations.
Thanks to Heather and Seth at Tofurky for helping out with day 7!
Because there are so many things to give away we are extending the time to enter and giving an extra day. Here is how to enter:
1. In the comments tell us how you follow us: on the blog, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Bloglovin, etc…
2. All entries must be received by 11:59PM PST on December 17, 2012.
3. We will have a reveal post the following day in a new post and the winners will have 48 hours to contact us from the time of post, otherwise we will choose another winner who then will also have 48 hours to get back to us. We have learned from past contest that it is sometimes very difficult to get a hold of winners.
4. We are sorry but for this one you must be in the USA to win.

We love everything Turtle island!! I got ya on Facebook 🙂
I just started following you on facebook. I got the link from the Tofurky facebook page. I *LOVE* Tofurky, but can’t afford it anymore. I have had no income since the end of August, when my daughter was born. I am lacto-ovo, but wish to be vegan. What made me decide that was when I learned how cows are seperated from their moms before they can even nursing just once. After seeing the beautiful sight of my daughter feeding from my wife, and how it made us so happy, the thought of these baby cows being seperated really got me upset.
Since I don’t have any income (on medical leave for myself, occured after the birth)… we have to get food from a food bank and WIC. I turn down any meat, but there are few vegan choices at the food bank (you can’t pick out your own food).
When I return to work, I plan on finally eating right. For now, websites like this offer me ideas on how to make as much vegan items as possible — and the users are generally very supportive, with some offering prayer for me and my family.
Thanks for sharing your story! I can’t wait for you to be able to afford going vegan. Fortunately, many of our recipes here are things you can make with pretty common ingredients. Good Luck!
I follow you on facebook, and I must say, that lunchbox is AWESOME! 🙂
