Wraps are in our menu once in awhile  especially if there are plenty of veggies that haven’t been used and is sitting in my veggie drawer in the refrigerator staring at me slouched as if I’m being mean by not picking them. However the regular sautéed or grilled veggie wraps have become so common in our house that I find it boring to cook them myself. The idea of quinoa wrap striked me when some cooked quinoa also joined the veggies this time reminding me to put them to good use. I usually make a stir fry with veggies and quinoa and that became the filling for my wrap.



The wrap was definitely very filling and I had a hearty meal for my lunch today. The subtle taste of lemon with crunchy veggies, healthy edamame,and soft avocados were the perfect filling and I simply loved it. The filling can definitely be served as is without wrapping them in tortilla but they can also be wrapped and cut in to bite size pieces and be a great party pleaser. As quinoa is quite bland to taste, they blend very well with any mixed vegetables, tofu, mushrooms and also with any spice blend like curry powder, maybe? Oh, my imagination is running wild for my next wrap, what will be yours?
