Tempeh Greek Salad Wrap

I’ve been cooking with tempeh a lot lately! I knew Toby would like this one, since he orders a Greek salad if he sees it on any menu. These turned out well, although I had problems getting the tortilla to stay wrapped. I just stuck a toothpick in each sandwich, and then everyone was on their own after that! I just gave Liam the tempeh and feta by itself (that boy loves feta!). These had a nice light taste and didn’t take too long to make. I served these with some seasoned pita chips.
