Wrap parties aren't just for movie makers
Consider having a wrap party after the next football game. Or protest. Or whatever. Or just offer the materials for lunch or dinner.
Displayed here are several ingredients that can be made into wraps: avocados, salsa, sliced bell peppers, sliced tomatoes, sliced baked tofu, hummus, vegan mayo, veggie pate, little greens, and soy chorizo.
The soy chorizo can be cooked up in a few minutes in a saute pan and can be hot or cold. You might like to add refried beans and offer the option of making hot burritos.
This type party lends itself well to a group event, where each person brings one or two ingredients.
To make it even more fun and enjoyable consider taping a list of suggested groupings on the wall near the ingredients. For example, note that these ingredients go well together: hummus, soy chorizo, sliced tomatoes, avocados. For a great list of possibilites with catchy names, take a look at Vegan Express, by Nava Atlas.
Oh, one more advantage: leftovers. These kinds of ingredients move readily into other dishes later.
