Saffron Quinoa Rice Wraps with Divine Tahini Dip

Okay. So I'll break this down for you:


Dear Bri,

If you weren't in love with Jak, and if I weren't straight - then I'd ask you to Marry Me. Instead, I guess that we will just have to be best of friends and feed one another over the years to come.


ps: Maybe Brian will Marry Me? I hear that he's a pretty good chef, and he did a hell of a job assembling the rice wraps. Plus, the whole beard thing is more my type. Put in a good word? Thanks.

All joking aside, these were so freaking fantastic that I actually had a dream about them later that night. This is how the wraps were made up:

Rice Wrapper, lined with....
  • Quinoa
  • Fresh Mint, Cilantro + Basil
  • Finely sliced cabbage
  • Sprouts

The key though was the delightful, perfectly seasoned, fluffy quinoa. Bri cooked the quinoa with a pinch of saffron, a touch of turmeric and some fresh garlic. So so so so outstanding.

Oh yeah, and the icing on the cake: TAHINI DIP. Out-of-this-stratosphere-tahini-dip!!!! Again - difficult to put into exact measurements because Bri doesn't measure, but play around with it.

  • Tahini
  • Fresh Peanut Butter {just a spoonful}
  • Sesame Oil + EVOO {a little splash of each}
  • Lemon Juice {from a whole lemon}
  • Sea Salt
  • Agave Nectar
  • Cayenne
  • Ginger + Garlic {fresh}
  • Apple Cider Vinegar

Put a a food processor and blend blend blend. If you want it thinner, for a salad dressing, just add a little bit of H2O.
Brian, a skilled rice wrapper...rolling away.
