Recipe for Vegan Buffalo Chicken Wrap

This vegan buffalo chicken wrap recipe is one of my favourite lunches to make!

I love the versatility of this high protein recipe because you can fill it with anything you want on top of the vegan buffalo chicken. I used soy curls as the “chicken” because they’re easy to use, high in protein, have a meaty texture like chicken and crisp nicely with some cornstarch! I recommend air frying but you can pan fry as well if you don’t have an air fryer. 

I use Frank’s hot sauce for the buffalo chicken since it’s a go-to and it’s slightly spicy and kinda sweet/salty which I like.

The optionally vegan coleslaw in the wrap gives it a nice fresh crunch and slight tang and of course, adding veggies in here gives more texture, crunch and freshness.

How To Make Buffalo Chicken Wrap (Vegan)

1. Start by soaking your soy curls with warm/hot water in a bowl and let it sit for 5-10 minutes or until soy curls have expanded and softened. Drain and squeeze out excess water. You should have soy curls that look like chicken strips (which you can also crumble to make smaller pieces).

2. Next, add the soy curls to a mixing bowl and toss in cornstarch, garlic powder, and salt & pepper.

3. Then you’ll want to cook your vegan chicken. If you want to air-fryer (like I did), you can grease your air fryer tray with a small amount of oil if you want – to reduce sticking. And air fry at 370 degrees for around 8 minutes or until slightly crispy. If you don’t have an air fryer or want to cook in a pan, fry with a small amount of oil in a non-stick pan until slightly crispy.

4. While soy curls are cooking, feel free to make my vegan coleslaw by mixing together shredded cabbage, hummus, and dijon mustard. It’s really delicious! You can also slice up any vegetables you want to add to your vegan buffalo chicken wrap.

5. Once soy curls are cooked, toss with your vegan buffalo sauce (adjust the amount according to your preference).

6. Then, add all the ingredients to the centre of your large tortilla and wrap it up. Feel free to switch up the vegetables according to your preference and what you have.

7. For a toasted vegan buffalo chicken wrap, toast or press in a panini press and enjoy!

    This recipe is very convenient when it comes to having a time crunch and need something on the go! I found the wrap to be delicious, and had it packed with many veggies including the ones listed. The dijon mustard in the coleslaw was not overpowering but instead combined with the Frank sauce for the soy curls, made it an excellent pairing. I wouldn’t have thought of this and love the recipe!

        This tastes just like a Buffalo chicken wrap! It’s hard to believe it’s Vegan. Soy curls are a God send. Thank you for the idea!

  2. 5 stars
    Loved this super easy to make crispy buffalo chicken wrap. A great lunch time meal, loved the spicy flavour. Nice to dip in vegan ranch. Definitely will be making this again.

  3. 5 stars
    I love making this because it’s so easy but yummy!!! I also made this with barbecue sauce instead of buffalo and I love them both.

  4. 5 stars
    So delicious! I tried this recipe for the first time tonight and I was blown away! This is only the second time I’ve used soy cur!s, and the last time was not very tasty. I am trying to lose weight, so I only used half the quantity of the curls and it was still very filling.

    Thank you, Rose, for consistently put out great, easy recipes!
