Vegetarian Quinoa Tacos recipe

Servings: 6 to 8
Total Time: 40 minutes
Recipe by: Frankie


1 cup quinoa
2 cups vegetable broth
1 TBSP olive oil
1 cup finely chopped onion
1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
2 cloves minced garlic
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika
1 1/2 TBSP chili powder
2 tsp cumin
24 soft or hard taco shells
8 oz sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
Optional toppings such as shredded lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, jalapenos, sour cream, etc.


1. Rinse the quinoa well in a mesh strainer for 30 seconds. Combine the broth and rinsed quinoa in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, 20 to 25 minutes. Take off the heat, cover and let sit 5 minutes then fluff with a fork.

2. In a large pan heat the oil over medium heat then add the onions and peppers and cook until tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook 30 seconds or until garlic becomes fragrant. Stir in the cooked quinoa, salt, paprika, chili powder and cumin. Turn heat to low and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent sticking to the bottom of the pan.

3. Add quinoa filling to taco shells and add your favorite taco toppings.
