Two Ingredients Quinoa Wrap


These quinoa wraps are the easiest and most wholesome dessert ever! They’re naturally vegan, gluten-free, and high in protein, and hot or cold, they remain dreamily soft and flexible with a nice earthy and subtly sweet flavor. All you need is quinoa and water, and if you like, some organic greens powder for the color and more nutrients!

I’m not sure what exactly to call these wraps, tortillas? Crepes? Well, they’re like both, paper thin, soft like a baby’s cheek, and very flexible. You will only need wholegrain raw quinoas and water for the base, then you can flavor the mixture either savory with paprika, cumin, garlic, or onion powder, etc, or sweet with sugar, cinnamon, vanilla extract, or whatever you like! And no you DO NOT have to have a crepe pan or tawa! A good nonstick pan will do the trick trust me.

I added some vegetable powder for a nice green color and more nutrients but it’s totally optional! You can also use any other powders you like, matcha, cacao, spirulina, etc.

To make an easy dessert wrap, I used the viral tortilla folding hack and added my homemade orange cranberry jam, vegan chocolate spread, granola, seed crackers, and banana, it makes such a yummy, nourishing, and filling breakfast!

INGREDIENTS:

*makes about 4-5 10 inch tortillas

1 cup raw quinoa

1 cup water

2 scoops vegetable powder, optional

*if not using the powder, reduce the water to 3/4 cup

TO MAKE:

– Soak the quinoa with enough water that completely covers all the grains for at the very least 2 hours, or in the fridge overnight;

– Do not skip the soaking step! It is very important in removing the naturally occurring saponin, which makes quinoa bitter, and phytic acid, which compromises the digestibility of the grain. The soaking also makes it easier to blend;

– Drain and rinse the quinoa, add to a high speed blender container, add in the fresh cup of water;

– Blend on high for 1 – 2 minutes or until the mixture is completely smooth, I used the 10 speed on my Vitamix;

– Add the organic greens powder, blend for another 30 seconds or so until it’s completely mixed in, let the mixture sit for 10 minutes;

– Use a good quality NONSTICK pan, brush on a little bit of olive oil, heat the pan over medium heat;

– Pour in 1/4 cup of the mixture, quickly spread it around as evenly as possible, cook on medium-low heat for a couple of minutes;

– When the top side looks dry and the bottom can move around freely, carefully flip, and cook the other side or another minute or two till cooked through;

– You can eat the wraps while hot or let them cool down on a wire rack, they will remain soft hot or cold, enjoy!
