Recipe type: Main dish
Serves: 4
Pickled Onions: (this will make extra)
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • White wine vinegar (enough to cover the onions in a jar)
  • A few pinches of cane sugar and salt
Kale Pepita Pesto
  • ½ cup pepitas
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 1 cup chopped kale
  • 1 cup chopped fresh basil
  • Juice and zest of 1 small lemon
  • ¼ teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
For the wraps:
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 2 small cucumbers, chopped
  • 2 cups chopped kale
  • ½ cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • ⅓ cup Traditional ATHENOS Feta Cheese
  • ¼ cup chopped chives
  • ¼ cup pine nuts
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • Juice of ½ lemon, more to taste
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Handful of fresh mint leaves
  • 4 large whole grain tortilla wraps
  1. Make the pickled onions by placing the sliced onions in a jar. Cover with white wine vinegar and a few pinches of cane sugar and salt. Chill for at least 1 hour or overnight. Store any extra in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
  2. Make the pesto by pulsing the pepitas and garlic together in a food processor. Next add the kale and basil and pulse again. Add the lemon juice, lemon zest, Dijon mustard, and a few pinches of salt and freshly ground pepper and pulse again. With the food processor running, add the olive oil and pulse until the pesto emulsifies. Taste and season with more salt and pepper as desired.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the quinoa, cucumbers, kale, cherry tomatoes, feta cheese, chives, and pine nuts. Add the olive oil, lemon juice, and a few generous pinches of salt and pepper and toss. Taste and adjust seasonings.
  4. Assemble the wraps with the quinoa mixture, a few dollops of kale pesto, the pickled onions, and fresh mint. Wrap and enjoy!
