ingredients

directions

  • Add dry, unwashed quinoa to a large dry skillet. Toast until fragrant, stirring occasionally. Add veggie broth and bring to a boil. Cover, lower heat, and simmer until tender (about 15 minutes).
  • Add beans, water, garlic, nutritional yeast, salt & pepper. Cover, and heat over low flame until beans are warmed through. Add more water if needed to keep the quinoa from sticking.
  • In an oven or toaster oven, lightly toast 2 tortillas until warm and slightly crispy.
  • Make the sauce: Add all sauce ingredients to a blender and process until sauce is smooth.
  • Plate. Divide quinoa/bean mixture in half, and place half the filling inside each tortilla. Roll up or fold tortillas in half. Drizzle with southwestern sauce and chopped avocados.

    Is the nutritional yeast a must have ingredient? Where do I find this ingredient?

    This was delicious! I would say it takes longer to make than it indicated.

    This is a really great meal. Although i didn't have quiet all the ingredients i am now fan of putting quinoa in a burrito as well as a healthy dose of veggies. I put some tahini for the sauce as well as some garlic simmered in oil.

    Yum! What a fun twist on your average burrito! The texture of the quinoa and "cheesy" sauce was great. I made it as directed, but had lots of leftover filling (which I used for more burritos). I would say that this recipe makes enough filling (but not enough sauce) for about six large burritos. Made for Veg*n Swap, July 2010.
