Author's Notes

Make the quinoa ahead and ever EASIER by using a rice cooker. It’s so nice to just push one setting and leave it until it’s done. Same ratio of water/quinoa. You can also use broth instead of water to make it more flavorful.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
First, make your pesto. Cook the Edamame (1 1/2 cups) . Deshell and let cool.
Step 2
Combine your edamame, Sunflower Seeds (1/4 cup) , and Garlic (1 clove) in a food processor. Blend then add in Olive Oil (3 Tbsp) , Lemon Juice (1/2 Tbsp) , and Sea Salt and Pepper (to taste) . Blend again until thick pesto is formed.
Step 3
Scoop into a bowl and set aside or cover and store in fridge for later. Makes around 1 cup.
Step 4
Now for the California quinoa salad. You can use leftover quinoa in this recipe.
Step 5
Combine Red Onions (1/2 cup) , Roma Tomato (1) , Red Bell Peppers (1/2 cup) , and Mangoes (1/2 cup) in a large bowl with the Quinoa (2 cups) . Add Dried Cranberries (1/3 cup) , Sunflower Seeds (1/3 cup) , and Fresh Cilantro (1/4 cup) . Toss all together.
Step 6
Add in Red Wine Vinegar (2 Tbsp) , Sea Salt (1/2 tsp) , and Ground Black Pepper (1/4 tsp) and toss again.
Step 7
Remove the stem from the Collard Greens (1 bunch) , leaving the whole leaf. Set aside 4-5 large leaves. Rinse each leaf, then dry and place in between a paper towel. Keep them in a paper towel and place in microwave for 10 seconds or so to lightly steam and soften.
Step 8
Remove and lay flat on cutting board or plate.
Step 9
Next, scoop 2-4 tbsp of pesto onto each wrap then 1/4 - 1/3 cup of the quinoa salad. Roll up tightly.
