Asian-Flavored Quinoa Wraps

Asian flavored quinoa wraps

Once you have the cooked quinoa on hand, these delectable Asian-flavored wraps come together very quickly. Photos by Rachael Braun. Recipe contributed by Wendy Polisi, reprinted from Cooking Quinoa. 

Makes: 4 wraps

  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 3 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce of your choice (such as Sriracha), more or less to taste
  • Reduced-sodium soy sauce or tamari to taste
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced
  • 4 large (10-inch) wraps, preferably whole grain
  • 3 cups or so arugula, baby spinach, or mixed baby greens
  • 1 medium ripe avocado, peeled and diced
  • 1 large carrot, grated or finely diced (or 1 cup pregrated carrot)

Combine the cooked quinoa, vegan mayonnaise, rice vinegar, hot sauce, and scallions in a mixing bowl and stir together well. Drizzle in a little soy sauce, just enough to add subtle flavor.

Dollop 1/2 cup of the quinoa mixture onto center of the wrap and top with a good handful of the greens, a quarter of the avocado, and a quarter of the carrots. Roll and cut in half.

Repeat with remaining wraps. Pass around additional soy sauce and/or hot sauce for individual servings.

    This looks yummy! I’m always looking for lunch ideas. I just wanted to let you know, though, that I couldn’t pin it on Pinterest. I believe there’s something in the way the image displays that it can’t copy it. It would be great to fix this — that way I could share the recipe and your site with everyone.

    Looks good! How about a print button? I don’t pinterest, and I hate when people post recipes on Facebook.

    One bite and I was amazed. You guys have to try this for the quinoa sauce alone. Wow.

      Jennifer, this recipe is eminently flexible, so I’d say just use 3 T of your favorite salad dressing. Enjoy!

    Great recipe! I made this for my vegan friend when she came over for lunch and it was a big hit for everyone! We did a home-made vegan mayonnaise and that made it even tastier!
