Quinoa Lettuce Wraps

Upon searching it out, I found that a few other people had done this, but I wasn’t able to find a recipe that matched, well… mostly what I happened to have in the house when I was struck with the desire to cook this.

This is all my guesses on the measurements after the fact.

  • Half an onion diced
  • 1/2 cup orange bell pepper diced
  • Half package of mushrooms cubed
  • 1/4 cup carrots cubed
  • 8 0z water chestnuts cubed
  • 1/2 uncooked quinoa
  • garlic
  • sesame oil
  • soy sauce
  • ground ginger
  • romaine lettuce

In one pot, get your quinoa cooking. In a pan, start cooking your onions and bell peppers with a generous drizzling of sesame oil. Once they are closing in on how cooked you’d like them, put your mushrooms and garlic in


This is what mine looked like at this point. Then I put in the carrots and water chestnuts. I wanted them to still be a little crunchy. I sprinkled ground ginger on top, and then mixed in the cooked quinoa. Pour in soy sauce to taste and serve on romaine lettuce.


Everyone loved it. Next time I’m planning on putting in a little honey, and the rest will vary based on what’s in the house, but the bones of the recipe was awesome.
