These Grilled Vegetable Quinoa Wraps make a great veggie packed lunch! Delicious and nutritious, this is one even the kids will love.
Quinoa Wraps are the Perfect Plant Based Lunch!
I don't think that I could pinpoint when it was that I had my first wrap. I think I was probably in my early teens. Whenever it happened, it was love at first bite.
For years, I've sought out restaurants that served wraps, especially if they have sprouts in them. Because sprouts make all sandwiches better. (At least I think so!)
My ability to enjoy wraps at restaurants has come to a screeching halt since I have yet to run across one that offers a gluten free wrap. (If you know of anywhere I would love to hear about it so that I can check it out during our travels.)
Good thing wraps are easy to make at home when I need a fix. They are a great easy solution for dinner when the weather is nice, and all I want to do is get out of the kitchen and enjoy outdoors.
These Grilled Vegetable Quinoa Wraps are a nutritious veggie-packed sandwich that even the kids will love! Just leave off the spicy sauce if your little ones don't like the heat! You can always substitute plain mayonnaise (preferably homemade) or Greek Yogurt.
Feel free to play around with these wraps and use whatever vegetables you happen to have on hand. Shredded carrots and cabbage would both be great additions to this wrap. (But I probably wouldn't grill them. And then we wouldn't have a Grilled Vegetable Quinoa Wrap...)
And if wraps aren't your thing or you are limiting your carb intake, this recipe could easily become a bowl with a drizzle of the delicious spicy sauce on top!
Either way, this is one I hope you enjoy!

Those wraps look so good! I cook with quinoa all the time. I love the flavor, and I love how healthy it is. Thanks!
Those look so good! There's nothing better than a healthy recipe that tastes delicious. Thank you!
Oh these could be a good lunch for me. I love using quinoa and the spice with all of those veggies sounds good.
I have been looking for more quinoa recipes. This one would be great for us because we can make it gluten free.
I can not wait to make these! Now that we are eating a mostly plant based diet, protein sources like quinoa have become our go-to.
I am seeing quinoa in so many recipes lately. Hubby is a big fan of wraps, they are one of his favorite things to have for lunch because they are so versatile.
All I have to say is YUM! I've never thought about putting quinoa in my wraps before, but now I'm going to have to try this!
I have been on the hunt for healthy lunch recipes and it looks like I found it! Will be pinning this one to try out this week!
These sound absolutely delicious! My husband, who is practically a carnivore, would even love these I think
These are some juicy-looking wraps.
I am a fan of using quinoa; I like that it is an ancient grain (this food has been around for a long time!) that is packed with protein.

Wow. This looks so good I would love to make this for my family. My daughter is trying to make healthier meal choices and I know she'd want me to make them for her.
I haven't used quinoa a lot. This is a fab recipe for it!
This looks delicious! I've been needing healthier meal ideas as well.

Anything with grilled veggies is delicious. I am going to have to give this a try. Love how easy it is and it is a healthy lunch alternative.
I don't really eat quinoa, but it sounds like there are some yummy recipes. This sounds like a good one!
These wraps would be a great idea to have for an outdoor party too. Once the weather gets nice, we'd fire up the grill and load it with veggies and burgers and seafood! Maybe I can set up a "make your own wrap" bar. 🙂
Wow, this wrap is packed with some pretty awesome stuff! I have to admit that i probably wouldnt try some of this stuff at first, but it looks AMAZING!! I need to make this and try it!
Wraps are definitely easy to make. It's also perfect for the summer and spring weather. I love the idea of adding quinoa, it's a good alternative to rice.
I could honestly never eat meat again with recipes like this one.
Hi, Wendy. You could try coconut wraps. They will be on the Swedish side but I have used them with savoury fillings and they are delicious. They satisfy the need for sandwich wraps without the gluten. I order mine online. Nuco brand.
