Recently I entered Trader Joe’s Quintessential Quinoa Recipe Competition. The rules were simple: (1) the recipe must feature no more than 7 Trader Joe’s ingredients (one must be quinoa) and (2) prep to should be no more than 20 minutes (not including cooking time).
For my entry, I came up with this recipe for a Pesto-Quinoa-Veggie Wrap. Since my husband and I have vastly difficult tastebuds, I am often cooking for one, and this sandwich makes for a quick lunch. I loved the raw combination of veggies so much that I ate this wrap for lunch every day for a week.
Alas, I was not selected a one of the 5 finalists in the competition (they received over 500 entries), so I am posting the recipe here for you to enjoy.
