    1/4 cup (60 mL) reduced-fat vegan mayonnaise
    4 oz (115 g) extra-firm light silken tofu
    1/2 small garlic clove, crushed
    1/8 to 1/4 tsp (0.5 to 1 mL) chipotle chili powder
    4 large whole wheat or sprouted wheat tortilla wraps
    1/4 to 1/2 cup (60 to 125 mL) fruit chutney (optional)
    3 cups (750 mL) baby salad greens
    8 oz (225 g) smoked tofu, thinly sliced and cut into slivers
    2 cups (500 mL) fresh cantaloupe, peach, nectarine, or mango, thinly sliced

    To make Chipotle Cream purée mayonnaise, tofu, garlic, and chipotle powder until very smooth in blender or with stick/immersion blender. Refrigerate in covered jar until ready to use.

    When ready to fill wraps, toast each tortilla on one side only in heavy, dry skillet over high heat for a few seconds, just to soften. Remove immediately and toast next tortilla. It takes only a couple of minutes to toast all 4 tortillas.

    Spread the untoasted side of each tortilla, almost to edges, with about 3 Tbsp (45 mL) chipotle cream. If using optional chutney, also spread with 1 to 2 Tbsp (15 to 30 mL).

    Evenly divide salad greens, slivered smoked tofu, and fruit slices evenly between 4 tortillas, piling them down centre of wrap, leaving about 2 in (5 cm) uncovered on end closest to you. Fold up that end and fold over sides firmly to make a roll that is closed on the bottom and open on top.

    Cut roll in half diagonally. You’ll need plenty of napkins!

    Serves 4.

    An Elegant Afternoon Tea

    Whether you call her Mom, Mother, Momma, or Mum, an afternoon tea is the perfect way to celebrate that special person in your life. It can not only be a fun and elegant occasion but also offer a wonderfully relaxed celebration. Afternoon tea has come to be a sort of ritual that allows you to slow down and take your time. The pace is gentle and calm, allowing time for everyone to unwind. Because it’s also something we don’t all do every day, it can help spark conversation and provide a special sense of occasion. The host can prepare food in advance, and with plenty of options both savoury and sweet, it can easily provide something that all will enjoy. And because offerings are all beautifully laid out and displayed, there’s no getting up and down from the table, which leaves everyone free for the most important reason for gathering—spending time with Mom. With afternoon tea, there’s plenty of opportunity to visit and spend time together and enjoy delicious food; these six recipes will help you prepare an afternoon tea to nourish body and soul and to celebrate Mom in style.
