Starting with making the Quinoa (pronouced Keen-wah) According to instructions on the box. (you make it like Rice or grits)

Fire roasted tomatoes from Trader Joes
Cannaloni beans
Spices: Herbs De Province. (got it first in France, found it at Whole Foods) a little lemon juice (brightens the flavors....

The wrap: put the brown rice tortilla over the hot stove for a few seconds to brown
saute: onion, pepper, garlic, grape tomatoes, kale (chopped), Tofu, (season with garlic salt, fresh cracked pepper, Herbs De Province, Balsamic (just a touch) Lemon juice, olive oil (so stuff won't stick and for flavor)

Spread garlic hummus on the tortilla, chop some kale up in small pieces, place on top of hummus, add saute, shred some carrots, bean sprouts and top with pumpkin seeds....
