Zucchini Quinoa Kebab Wrap/Fusion Zucchini Kebab Wrap

This Week's posts are going to be Wraps and Rolls, yes this week's theme for the first week of blogging marathon of this month is Wraps and Rolls. Wrap is a kind of sandwich which is made usually with soft flatbread like tortillas, lavash or pita flatbreads. Most of the filling for making wraps calls for cold meats or seafoods stuffed along with lettuce, tomatoes, guacamole, sauteed vegetables or grilled onions with cheese and a sauce. Wraps makes a super filling meal as they are loaded with meats and vegetables in it. However many vegan and vegetarian wraps do exists and you can stuff a wrap with any sort of filling. I have been making wraps at home either with homemade tortillas or else with store bought ones. And am kick starting this week's blogging marathon with a fabulous super healthy and definitely a fusion kebab i have prepared at home with both zucchini and quinoa.

Zucchini Quinoa Kebab Wraps

Yes my filling is a vegetarian kebab which consists of grated and sauteed zucchini and cooked quinoa spiced with Indian spices.Obviously you can name this wrap as Fusion wrap as well. Simple to make this wraps calls for some preplanning to dish out these kebab else its quite an interesting wrap to try with any sort of your favourite vegetables or meat kebabs. My pick for making the kebab is Zucchini and cooked quinoa which is later mixed with some mashed potatoes and spiced with Indian spices. Once rolled as kebab, i opted for baking eventhough deep frying or shallow frying works awesome as well. I went with baking them for 20-25mins and then wrapped them in store bought tortilla wraps topped with some vegetables along with ketchup and mayonnaise sauce. We enjoyed this wraps thoroughly for our Sunday's brunch and loved it.
