Black bean and Quinoa tacos
I am sad to say I am not feeling to whoopee today, but that is not stopping me from writing a recipe for you!!
Sorry, it has taken me all day to get this written. My illness is really fighting my body today.
I will not relent, so here is my post!
My friend Jessica Ann is a wonderful person, she travels yearly to Asia to help care for orphaned children, she is a nanny for two adorable boys and is going to school full time to be in the medical field, her photography is brilliant and she is a veggie girl! I met Jessica in an adorable fresh food market in the city near my small town. Every time I would go in there Jessica was smiling, it was so addictive, so I finally got the courage up to ask her if I could put the store on my blog!! Well, she said yes and we have been Internet buddies ever since!
A few weeks ago I noticed on facebook that she posted her dinner and it looked alot like this.
Now, believe it or not veggie friends, but I had never tried quinoa. I don't know why, but it scared me. It seems to be silly now, after I made it. I was pleasantly surprised!! Here is her ridiculously simple and delicious recipe!
Black bean and Quinoa Taco's
2 cups cooked black beans, no liquid
1 batch of quinoa, cooked
1 tbls. cumin
1 tsp. dried quinoa
1 avocado, cubed
2 Roma tomatoes, cubed
1 small onion, chopped small
6 flour tortilla's
Mix the beans and quinoa, add seasonings and set aside. In a skillet add some EVOO and toss in a flour tortilla, top with about a cup of the bean and quinoa mixture. Fold over when the tortilla is browned. Add the avocado, onion and the tomato. Top with your favorite salsa or taco sauce.
I wish you could meet Jessica for yourself to see how wonderful she is.
I hope you try it! I am going to head to bed, but I will be back tomorrow with another simple vegan recipe!
Until then, think happy thoughts!
