Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Cook the quinoa

  • Rinse the quinoa.
In a small sauce pot, combine the quinoa and 1 cup [2 cups] lightly salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the quinoa is tender and the water is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Spread the quinoa out on a plate or sheet pan to cool.
While the quinoa cooks and cools, prepare the remaining ingredients.

2

Cook the shishito peppers

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 teaspoon oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the shishito peppers and cook, turning regularly, until shiny and starting to char and blister, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate and season with salt and pepper. Add more oil between batches if needed.
While the peppers cook, prepare the remaining ingredients.

3

Prep the remaining ingredients

  • Trim the ends from the cucumber. Lay the cucumber flat; using a peeler and starting at one end and working toward the other, thinly shave the cucumber lengthwise into thin ribbons until you reach the seeds. Repeat on the other side. Discard the seeds.
  • Scrub or peel the carrot and trim the ends. Using the large holes of a box grater, coarsely grate the carrot.
  • Remove any stems from the grapes; cut the grapes lengthwise into quarters.
In a medium bowl, toss together the arugula, grapes, and 1 to 2 teaspoons oil; season to taste with salt and pepper.

4

Assemble the wraps

Arrange the lavash on a cutting board. Working with 1 lavash at a time, spread a thick layer of cashew-beet butter on one half of each lavash. Top with the quinoa, cucumber ribbons, and carrot. On the other half of the lavash, pile the arugula salad. Starting at the end with the cashew-beet butter, roll each lavash into a wrap. Cut the wraps in half on the diagonal.

Serve

Transfer the wraps to individual plates and serve the shishito peppers on the side.
