Herbed Quinoa Breakfast Wraps

Herbed Quinoa Breakfast Wraps

Sometimes I just gotta have eggs for breakfast. They're comforting, they're quick and they're savory (at least most of the time).

Although I tend to go down the sweet road most mornings, making myself a green smoothie or big bowl of oatmeal, on the rare occasion that savory food is calling my name, these quinoa breakfast wraps are my go-to. Not only are they super easy to make and only take about 5 minutes, but they're also filling, packed with protein and are great for when you're on the go.

Essentially, these wraps are a super thin omelette that I've added a bit of non-dairy milk and fresh herbs into, then layered on some smashed avocado, quinoa and sprouts, and wrapped the whole thing up like a little burrito. Pretty perfect if you ask me!

Then simply slice them in half (or not!) and enjoy.

These really do make the perfect breakfast. I used just two eggs in this recipe and it made me three small wraps or two large ones and I was full until lunch. But what I really love is that these wraps are portable meaning you can take them with you to the office for the morning. Take one to the gym and have it as a post-workout snack. Wrap them up and freeze them for a quick and easy dinner.

And go crazy with the fillings!

  1. Does anybody know if these freeze well? I would love to make a giant batch and store them in the freezer for future use.

    • I haven’t personally tried freezing them, but I’ve frozen other breakfast burritos and it’s worked out great. I think these would be just as delicious 🙂

  2. okay I have GOT to do this on my Paleo blog! I’ll cite you of course! I’ve never considered doing quinoa wraps before, this is excellent! I’m so excited!
