  • by

1 cup quinoa, cooked according to directions
1 1/2 cups frozen, shelled edamame
3/4 cup roasted red peppers, chopped
3 tsp lime juice
dash cumin
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tsp olive oil
3 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
8 large Romaine lettuce leaves, washed and dried

Cook quinoa according to directions.
While quinoa is still hot, stir in edamame and roasted red peppers.
Put cover back on pot and allow to sit.
Meanwhile, whisk together the lime juice, cumin, and garlic.
Keep whisking and slowly drizzle in the olive oil, whisking until slightly thickened and smooth.
Dump quinoa mixture into bowl and drizzle dressing over, tossing to combine.
Toss in the cilantro.
Lay out the Romaine lettuce leaves on a work surface.
Spoon quinoa mixture into center of each leaf until mixture is used up evenly distributed between leaves.
Gently roll up the lettuce leaves over the mixture, lengthwise, as tightly as you can without breaking the leaves.
If you need to transport, you can lay in shallow pan and cover to transport or you can make them there.
