Quick Quinoa Lunch Wraps

Quinoa is so quick and easy to make that it's a great option for any lunch-time meal.  I personally love sandwiches and more then sandwiches, I love wraps!  So I took the left over quinoa I had from the quinoa raisin muffins and make a spicy quinoa wrap:

Spicy Quinoa Salad Wrap

For the salad: 
1/2 to 3/4 cup of quinoa or more, up to a 1.5 cups
1 small sweet red pepper, chopped
1 small sweet yellow pepper, chopped
1 small sweet orange pepper, chopped
1 medium red tomato, chopped
1-2 tbsp of hot pickled peppers, chopped
2-3 tbsp organic salsa (mild, medium or hot)
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (can omit if using hot salsa)
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tbsp of olive oil (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste (optional)

For the wrap:
1 whole wheat flat bread wrap
handful of spinach leaves, washed and dried

1. In a medium bowl add all the salad ingredients together and mix well. Set aside.

2. On a cutting board, lay the flat bread out and lay some spinach leaves on top.  Then add a few large scoopfuls of the quinoa salad.

3. Fold one side of the wrap, tucking all the food under it and begin to roll the wrap tightly so that nothing falls out.

4. Cut on an angle through the middle of the wrap and serve with a side salad or pickles, whatever you like.
