I read a number of blogs and I almost completely lose interest when the blogger doesn’t talk about their personal life enough. You know, when they are just down to business, and don’t give any details about themselves. So I feel really bad getting right down to business today with this recipe and not talking about my personal life at all! I’m just way too pumped up on this sauce I made! (On a side note, I have a lot of exciting stuff going on so I will talk about that on Wednesday 🙂 )
It’s a dressing, it’s a fry sauce, it’s a (veggie) burger sauce, it’s a chip dip, you can BATHE in it! Ok, well maybe not that last one…
I wasn’t sure if I should call it a “Chipotle Sauce” or “Spicy Aioli Sauce”. I decided Aioli sounded way fancier and went with that.
Let’s also talk about this incredible wrap I poured this sauce on. You could use whatever you wanted in this wrap but I used the following ingredients:
-cucumber, sliced into “matchstick” sized pieces
-carrot, peeled into thin strips
-cilantro *adding cilantro is mandatory 🙂
I wrapped it up in a whole wheat tortilla but I bought some brown rice tortillas as well. I would also make this in “bowl” style, which I guess technically is called salad.
The key with vegetables in my opinion is to slice or peel them into small pieces. That way you don’t end up with a mouthful of just one vegetable which can be overpowering, and scary for those who are fearful of vegetables.
Veggie Wrap in the making.
Veggie wrap with Spicy Aioli!
I had never bought veganaise before today, probably because I didn’t like mayonnaise when I wasn’t vegan. I will be buying it from now on though!
Spicy Aioli Sauce
1 cup veganaise
1/2 cup white beans such as white kidney beans or navy beans
1/4 cup chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, slice open and remove all the seeds!!
1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoons adobo sauce the chipotles came in.
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup packed cilantro leaves.
1-2 teaspoons minced garlic
Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.
Last week I was driving and spotted these pugs in the back of a truck! I pulled into the parking lot and took their picture. They must have thought I was going to kidnap them or something because they were barking like CRAZY! Haha!
