Yesterday, Jaime asked “Hi! Will you please share your recipe for quinoa tacos? Im always looking for new ideas for quinoa – to convince my husband that it can be delicious!” I figured this would be a great recipe to share because it works for me!
Random fact: Quinoa is actually an extremely healthy grain and one of the very few “complete” foods.
This quinoa taco recipe came together as my DH and I experimented with things while we were trying to cut back on meat consumption. I am guessing that you could use beef with it, or just use beans in the place of meat. Tonight we will be trying the basic recipe with black beans added to the crumbles and quionoa mixture. But the basic recipe goes something like this:
- 1 cooked packet of boca crumbles
- 1 cup cooked quiona
- mix together crumbles and quinoa with a little water and taco seasoning to your desired taste
- put in hard or soft taco shells with cheese, sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, and salsa or hot sauce
