Looking for a quick, vegetarian lunch? These Quinoa Wraps with Onion Dip couldn’t be simpler! Filled with quinoa, tomatoes and avocado and then dipped in a creamy onion dip—they’re healthy and flavorful!
Hi hi hi! How’s your weekend so far? It’s currently Saturday (well, not currently, but as I’m writing this..) and Miguel has been on the phone for the past two hours trying to rent a moving truck. HAAAAALP. Anywho..
Today—currently, currently—it is Sunday and I am feeling good. And by ‘good’ I mean that I have a bagillion things to do and I’m hoping I can tackle them all. So by ‘good’ I think I mean stressed even though I just said I wasn’t stressed a few days ago. It’s funny how I can feel at ease until I decide to make a ‘to-do’ list aka my favorite/least favorite things. Ahh lists. I’m kind of a psycho list maker.
Not every day, but most days I plan my days out by the hour. Now before you go and file me under the ‘crazy Type A’ category, please note that I probably only follow my to do lists, like, 50% of the time. It’s the intention that counts, right? The truth is, my days HAVE to be planned out because A) every day is different, B) I have several jobs and I need to prioritize them accordingly depending on assignments due, and C) I’m an extremely forgetful person, so if I don’t write something down I will probably never do it.
My to do list today looks something like… WAKE UP (um…duh), 9-10 am: grocery shopping; 1015-1130: freelance recipe/photos; food break; 12-1: blog recipe/photos; 1:30-2: take workout photos; 230-4 hang out with Layla (walk or go to the park); rest of the day=edit photos and prep Monday’s blog post.
Not all Sunday’s are as busy, but I do try to use my time wisely on Sundays. Plus, I still get a bit of break thanks to Layla—she definitely forces me to go outside and enjoy the sunshine at least once a day which is nice. Aaaaand like I said, my time estimations are always a little bit off, but that’s ok. Setting some sort of plan is generally better than setting no plan (unless I’m having a dedicated break day, then that’s a different story).
Onto these quinoa wraps though…
They’re one of those recipes that’s so easy I feel weird sharing. BUT I rarely use quinoa in sandwiches and I rarely make sandwiches that don’t contain meat, so for those two reasons, I absolutely consider this a blog-worthy recipe. OH! And the onion dip—the onion dip is definitely the best part.
These wraps are simple: quinoa, mushrooms, tomato, cheese, and avocado. Take those ingredients and dip ‘em in a crazy simple, creamy onion dip and you’ve got yourself a case of bad breath. I mean… TWO delicious wraps. Yes, that’s it 🙂
If you’re looking for a simple wrap to pack for your lunch this week, definitely give this recipe a shot. Just remember to bring along the breath mints!Print
