Kale and Jerk Tempeh Wrap

I have been experimenting with different wraps. I need to find the perfect wrap to serve as finger foods at an upcoming family gathering. This is one version I created.

It starts with my Spicy Kale Salad recipe. Then I added some cubed tempeh sautéed with green peppers, onions and jerk seasoning. I wrapped it all up in an extra large tortilla.
