Quinoa Hand Rolls

by - April 05, 2019

I accidentally discovered that eating humus together with quinoa is actually very nice.  I decided to make it into a hand roll today. Quinoa and humus can be prepared in advance and stored in the fridge.  Just cut the vegetables and wrap into a roll to eat whenever you want. It is healthy and easy to prepare. It is also vegetarian too and you can use other fresh vegetables e.g capsicum or sprouts.
