Recipe: Colourful Quinoa Wraps

Easy and Colourful Quinoa Wraps

From the Vitality Food Feature ‘QUINOA CUISINE‘.

These versatile wraps are as pretty as they are tasty. When cut into small lengths, they are a perfect finger food for an appetizer platter or buffet table. Mixing and matching various coloured wraps (spinach, tomato, herb) with various coloured quinoa grains produces amazing results.
For quick suppers at our house, there are no exact measures. I simply set out the fixings (listed below) and everybody wraps and rolls their own creations.

Ingredients

  • large tortilla wraps
  • cooked quinoa
  • low-fat mayonnaise (or mustard)
  • prepared wasabi
  • English cucumber, cut to length of wraps
  • red onion rings, shredded lettuce
  • sweet and hot pepper rings
  • fermented pickle slices (or drained sauerkraut)
  • sliced tomato
  • shredded cheese
  • sliced roast turkey, chicken or other lean cooked meat or canned fish (optional)

1) Spread the wrap with the wasabi, mayonnaise, or mustard.

2) Spoon on the quinoa, then pile on the veggies (the quinoa base will help hold it all together nicely).
