Food Improvisation: Quinoa Rolls

Disappointed with my previous experiment of the sweet potato rolls, I decided to take a different path.

Quinoa Rolls

This time it would be rice paper (I wanted nori but couldn’t find any) filled with quinoa. There would be a cucumber slice for a base and it would be topped with toffuti [vegan] cream cheese, half a baby tomato, and a dash of basil & pepper.

This second trial was better. The cucumber base provided a nice crunch, contrasted by the creamy cream cheese. The pepper and tomato complimented that combination well. The quinoa/rice paper was more iffy. Maybe if it was nori this time? Or perhaps substitute the quinoa for julienne carrots intermixed with pepper and avocado?
