Curry Tempeh Wraps with Spinach



This is an awesome 'packable' for lunches, and was really easy. I got the curry tempeh recipe from The Blissful Chef, and just wrapped it all up in a whole wheat tortilla and some spinach and sliced tomatoes. It was simple and so good! And tempeh is really good for you too!
