share. learn. thrive!
“Appy Fridays” here at Sequel really brighten up our Fridays, and have brought us some delicious treats over the months. Last week was no different! Susan’s Red Quinoa Rice Paper Wraps were loved by everyone – and the recipe was begging to be shared with all of you. Here is the recipe, according to Susan:
I really just opened my fridge and threw in a bunch of random things… so here goes…
It can get interesting - use what you have and buy what you need. This comes from the same principles I have for fashion: “shop when you shop and wear what you have”. I find that fashion and cooking are very similar; both are creative expressions of who you are.
Red Quinoa Rice Paper Wraps
Red Quinoa (because red is a pretty colour)
Cook Quinoa and place in large bowl
Beets (there weren’t beets in the one I made but after the fact I wished there had been)
Peppers (any colour will work great)
Parsley (you could also use cilantro, and if you do replace the lemon with lime for the dressing)
Feel free to add other veggies…anything goes
Grate or Julienne Veggies
Juice of a Lemon
Few teaspoons of Apricot Jam (organic from the Okanagan works best!)
Hot Sauce (from Thailand of course)
3 or so Cloves of Garlic
Salt & Pepper to taste
Toss everything together until mixed - be gentle.
“Cook” Rice Paper in warm water until soft. I layer two together so they don’t rip. Place some of the Quinoa Salad mixture in the center of the wrap, rock and roll!
