quinoa wrap with black beans, feta and avocado

quinoa wrap with black beans, feta and avocadoSo, I have to tell you that I’m totally obsessed with this wrap, like when I say obsessed, I mean I’ve had this wrap for lunch everyday this past week as well as dinner on a few occasions,  and I’m still craving it.  I’m just as obsessed with this wrap as I was when I first tried my lacinato kale salad, and for those of you that know me or have been following me for a while, you know that is my all time favorite salad ever!  I would put this wrap right up there in the same ballpark as my lacinato salad, and that’s saying a lot.

What makes this wrap so good?  Well, you take our favorite avocado-tahini dip, mix it in with some quinoa, black beans, a bit of melted Monterey jack and feta, throw in some sliced avocado, some spinach leaves, and wrap it all in a whole-grain tortilla, and oh my goodness,  you have yourself one amazing wrap that’s not only healthy, but full of flavor. Believe it or not, my kids LOVE this wrap.  The avocado-tahini dip adds so much flavor to the quinoa that my kids don’t even realize they’re eating quinoa. Also, my kids love cheese, (actually so do I) so the melted feta and Monterey jack cheese adds that extra burst of flavor.  I usually make up a batch of quinoa on Sunday as well as the avocado-tahini dip and then I have a week’s worth of lunches or a nice meatless Monday dinner that can come together in no time.  Pair this with my lacinato kale salad for dinner and you have yourself one amazing and healthy dinner!

quinoa wrap with black beans, feta and avocado

quinoa wrap with black beans, feta and avocado:

qunioa wrap:

  • 1 cup of dry quinoa, or feel free to use any leftover quinoa you have – Note: This makes up a full batch of quinoa, but I use it up all week in this wrap, as well as other dishes.
  • 2 cups filtered water
  • 1 15-ounce can of black beans, drained – You will also store any unused black beans for future wraps
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 6-8 spinach leaves
  • Monterey jack cheese to taste
  • feta cheese to taste
  • large (9-inch) multi-grain or spinach tortilla – You could also skip the tortilla and wrap it in lettuce or collard green, or just mix the quinoa mixture with some spinach leaves

avocado-tahini dip:
makes approximately 1 1/2 cups

  • 1 medium ripe avocado, peeled and diced
  • 1/3 cup well stirred tahini – make sure this is a level cup, as too much tahini will overpower the dip
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (approx. 1 lemon)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1/4 cup filtered water

ingredients for quinoa wrap with black beans, feta and avocadoI usually make the avocado-tahini dip and quinoa ahead of time, so all I have to do is assemble the wrap.  But, let’s just go through the steps as if you’re making this all at the same time.  First, start off by making up the avocado tahini dip.  BTW, this dip is amazing on its own served up with some tortilla chips.

avocado-tahini dipPeel and dice your avocado, measure out the 1/3 cup tahini, squeeze up your 3 tablespoons lemon juice and wash and mince your cilantro leaves.

DSC_0004Add in the 1/4 cup water and puree again until blended and smooth. See how much smoother the dip is? The water helps to get the dip to a creamier consistency. Feel free to add a bit more water to get the dip to a consistency that you like. I found that using 1/4 cup or splash more was perfect.

avocado and tahini dip in the food processor-2The dip can be stored in a well sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

Next, let’s make up your quinoa.  Bring the 1 cup well rinsed quinoa and 2 cups water to a boil in a medium sauce pan. Once the quinoa has come to a boil, give it a stir, cover it, and reduce the heat to simmer. Cook the quinoa until all the water is absorbed, about 10-15 minutes. Note: Please check your package of quinoa for cooking instructions, as they all vary.

The quinoa is done when its tender and you can see the little quinoa curlicues.

Assembling the wrap is all a personal preference.  Some of you are going to want huge wraps and others of you are going to want a smaller wrap.  So with that being said, take the amount of quinoa that you want to put in your wrap and put it in a small bowl, add in some black beans and then heat up the quinoa and black bean mixture either via the stove top or microwave.

Mix in some of the avocado tahini dip to the quinoa and black bean mixture.  The amount of avocado-tahini dip you add in is to taste.  I like to add in enough to make the quinoa a bit creamy.  The more avocado-tahini dip you add, the more flavor the quinoa will have.

Note: If I’m going to microwave the quinoa mixture, then I just add in the avocado-tahini dip at the same time as the black beans.  

quinoa mixed with black beans and the avocado tahini sauceYou can heat up your tortilla and melt your cheese anyway you wish.  This is just what I do. Get out a tortilla and place it in a dry skillet over medium heat.  Add to one half of the tortilla the Monterey jack cheese and feta.  Flip the other half over like you’re making a quesadilla, and let the cheese melt.

      You’re so welcome Kelly! That avocado-tahini dip is one of our favorite snacks. We pair it with tortilla chips all of the time! I’m surprised my kids liked this wrap as well, but I think the dip and cheese combination have a huge part to play in it :) xoxo, Jackie

  2. Christy@sweetandsavoring

    Yum! I just read the first two paragraphs to Andy and he was looking his lips; this just sounds so good! You took all the ingredients right out of our pantry, haha. I like to make a tahini yogurt dip with lemon and garlic, but with avocado? Definitely trying that one, Jackie! Thanks for sharing this with us :-)

    Okay, if this is ranked right up there with your beloved kale salad, then I HAVE to try this one! I love a wrap and this one looks so good! I love that at the end you say you make this without the tortilla and just have it as a salad, that would be great too!
    Hope you have a great day, Jackie! xoxo, Sharon

    looks like you’ve done it again! what a great idea– i’m inspired after my lazy food week in which i cooked zero meals. i might sub in a little bit of rice (or the quinoa hating fiance might opt out) but looks delicious and filling :) hope the new job is treating you well so far.

      Hey Cynthia! Don’t feel bad about having a lazy food week, I get in food ruts all the time, beleive me. I’m sort of in one now, as I’ve just been eating this wrap non-stop and I think I need to take a break and find something else to make 😉
      Yes, try the brown rice, but I will tell you that my quinoa hating kids like this wrap because between the cheese and the dip, they can’t tell that it’s quinoa that they’re eating. New job is good, but I’m trying to figure it all out and it can be a bit intimidating :) I guess that’s just how it goes in the beginning :) xoxo, Jackie

      1. cynthia

        I have to report back that the fiance loved the wraps– made with only quinoa, no rice! (He even rated them 8/10!) You were right– major success! They were really tasty & creamy. Thanks again! xoxoxo

      Hi Leslie! I’m not sure on the calorie thing. If I feeling like I want to cut back on the calories, then I will knock out some of the cheese. The tortillas I use are whole-grain flax tortillas and are low calorie. The rest of the ingredients, besides the cheeses are good calories and good fats, so I don’t fret about eating them. The avocado-tahini dip is full of healthy ingredients and fats as well. You can always make the wrap smaller in size as well. For dinner I tend to make a larger wrap and lunch a smaller one. :) xoxo, Jackie

    Jackie, I’m glad to see you back lately. I’ve been traveling ike crazy and its been to hard to comment Via my freaking iPhone :( I’ll say a prayer for you and the changes in your life. I hope the job is going well! I started my blog because I felt like there were so many blogs out that that portrayed a perfect life… the truth is none of us are perfect. so thanks for the honest post lately. Take care!

  10. Brendan

    Hey there! Am attempting to make this right now w my girlfriend and we think the avocado/tahini dip is a little too bland for our taste. We added extra cilantro and lemon juice as well as a pinch of salt and cumin. Is there anything else we could add that would make it a little tastier? Or do you think once we add the cheese, beans and spinach, will that make it a little tastier? Would adding an onion maybe or some other veggie/fruit suffice? Anyways we love your stuff and want to perfect it!

      jackiegrandy

      Hi Brendan! Hmmm.. I woudl have suggested what you added already. Have you tried a bit of the dip with a tortilla chip? I personally think it has fantastic flavor, so I tend not to add anything more to the dip, but I totally get that people have different taste buds and some people like things with a bit more punch :) All the flavors in the wrap work great together. The melted feta and Monterey jack cheeses add a flavor punch to the wrap. The wrap has a nice flavor, but it’s not super intense in flavor if that’s what you’re looking for. It’s just a great combination to me! :) Anwyay, I hope you end up enjoying it. xoxo, Jackie

  11. Cindih

    I just made this for lunch and it was wonderful! The next time I will go a little easy on the Tahini though because you are right, it can be a bit overpowering. I decided to skip the carbs and forego the wrap and ate it as a salad on a plate with a little extra spinach on the bottom. Thanks for the great recipe!

      jackiegrandy

      Hi Cindih! I’m so glad you made and loved the salad! Yes, I use exactly a 1/4 cup of tahini, as it can overpower the flavor of dip if you use too much. Good girl forgoing the carbs! I’m such a carb girl that I can’t seem to stay away from them 😉 xoox, Jackie

  12. Kelly

    I made the dip with just the other ingredients. I’ve already told friends about this one and they are dying for the recipe. Ps – my husband had a wrap and then asked for 2nds immediately. This is a keeper for sure!

  13. Jackie

    This sounds so delish, but I also was concerned about calories, so I build the recipe in a nutrition calculator. It’s subjective based on the number of servings (I used 4) but here’s what I came up with: Without the Avocado Tahini Dip 1 wrap is 400 calories, with the dip is 480 calories. For me, that’s not bad at all. I can’t wait to make it.

    I have to admit this wrap was SOOO yummy! But at first it was a little too bland for me, so I actually threw in some chipotle peppers. & I didn’t have feta so I replaced it with goat cheese, it came out amazing!

I might even add some of that chipotle paste I love to the sauce next time and see how it tastes :) xoxo, Jackie

    Another keeper! I had to make Australian substitutions again (adzuki beans and cheddar cheese) and I tried mountain bread wraps instead of tortillas, and a brown rice and quinoa blend that is readily available. But your combo is fab! We loved the dip, and the feta cheese really brought it all together. Last but not least, I had some kale salad left over! What a feast! Thank you again! You are really helping everyone to create nourishing meals! xx

      jackiegrandy

      Hi Martina! I can usually get 6 wraps maybe more? It just depends on how much quinoa you stuff them with. If you want to get more wraps, you can just use more black beans, avocado and spinach in the wraps. These are filling, believe it or not, so you don’t want to make them too big. When I stuff them too much I can only eat 1/2 of the wrap. I hope you all love them :) Let me know! xoxo,Jackie

    I love your recipes! I’m currently doing the Conscious Cleanse and was so happy to find this recipe! Sadly, I had to eat it without the tortilla and cheese, but still loved the tahini/quinoa/black bean mixture in a bowl with spinach! I sprinkled a few nuts on top and had a great meal.

    Hi Jackie! I was wondering how long you think the quinoa/black bean mixture would keep in the fridge to make this super quick to assemble daily for lunch. I see the dip lasts about 4 days, but I’d love to just be able to scoop some out of a bowl, heat it and sprinkle it with the tahini dip. This looks great!

      Hi Lauren. I usually keep the quinoa, black beans and tahini dip in separate containers for up to 4 days, but I’m sure that the black beans and quinoa would be fine mixed together for 4 days and even mixed in with the tahini dip. I’ve had the tahini dip and quinoa last 5 days, but I don’t advertise that to everyone just because. :) I hope you enjoy these wraps. I just made up a batch for the weekend. xoxo, Jackie

      Hi Svhess! I’m sorry to say but I don’t really know the exact number of servings? It does make quite a few wraps, possibly 6-8? It really depends on how much of the quinoa mixture you use per wrap, as well as beans, spinach and cheese? You can make them huge and get 4-5 wraps or smaller and get 6-8 or more. I hope that helps! xoxo, Jacquelyn

    This looks delicious! I’m excited to try it! Question though, if I made this for my lunch, could I make it in the morning, keep it cold and enjoy it for lunch? Is it good cold?? or is it best hot. I’m on the road a lot so I wouldn’t have access to a microwave.

      Hi there! I usually make up a wrap for lunch and take it to work, but I always re-heat it in the microwave if I do that. It’s truly best served warm. I’m not sure how it would be cold, but you could try it? I would try it hot the first time, just so you know how it really should taste. Maybe mix and warm up just the quinoa, tahini, beans and then top it with some feta and put just that in a warm thermos? I’ve done that before for my daughter to take to school for lunch and she says it tastes great! Anyway, I hope you love this wrap! xoxo, Jacquelyn

      Hmmm.. I’ve never tried freezing this wrap, so I can’t say whether it would freeze well or not? I’m not sure that the avocado-tahini dip would freeze well though. You could always cut the recipe down in half if you feel like it’s a bit too much. I honestly make this up for myself, and devour it throughout the week. It’s just too good! xoxo, Jacquelyn

      Hmmm…You could try using a whisk and whisking it real well. You will have to make sure that you really chop up your cilantro real fine, as the food processor minces everything. You could also try using a blender as well. I hope that helps! :) xoxo, Jacquelyn

    Due to a thyroid issue, I am unable to eat soy containing products (i.e., tahini) – is there something I can substitute in the sauce? Many thanks – this looks delicious!

      Hi there! Unfortunately, I don’t have any nutritional value for these wraps and I really don’t know how to calculate that! A reader did run the wraps through a nutritional counter and this is what she came up with! It’s based on 4 servings. Without the Avocado Tahini Dip 1 wrap is 400 calories, with the dip is 480 calories. For me, that’s not bad at all. I can’t wait to make it.
      It really depends on how much cheese you use, but the wrap itself is pretty healthy. The avocado tahini dip is full of nutritious ingredients and quinoa as we all know is full of nutrition and protein. I will see if there is a way to get the nutritional value on this! I think it’s the cheese that throws me off. Have a great day! xoxo, Jacquelyn

      Hi Jenn! I can’t wait for you to try this wrap, it’s so good! I’m not sure what brand I used, as it was a local brand of tortillas from Whole Foods. Any whole-grain tortilla will work for this recipe, even a spinach or whole-wheat tortilla will work! Let me know what you think when you give these a try!

say something to Marin mama...
