Quinoa and Black Bean Burritos are a scrumptious eat-with-your-hands family dinner! They are packed with protein and fiber, but also ooey-gooey cheese, tomato, cilantro, and sour cream! The 'meat' in this recipe is a flavorful taco-seasoned quinoa, black bean, and cauliflower filling. Easy to prep in advance and wrap individually! #vegetarianburritos #blackbeanburritos #blackbeanrecipes #quinoarecipes #burritorecipe
Start by rinsing the quinoa thoroughly in a strainer, then adding it to the water with the salt. Bring the water to a simmer, then turn it down to the lowest setting and cover. Cook covered for 20 minutes. Then turn off the heat, but leave the cover on for another 5 minutes.
Cut the cauliflower florets
Shred the cheese (if needed). Dice the tomato.
To a preheated large pan/skillet, add the oil and then the cauliflower florets. Cook for 5 minutes until they are browned.
Drain the black beans of any excess liquid and add them to the cauliflower in the pan. Then add 2 cups water and bring to a simmer.
Add cooked quinoa and the taco seasoning and chili powder. Taste for seasoning and add salt as needed (depends on how salty your taco seasoning is).
When you are ready to assemble, warm your tortillas. I like to give them a light grill in a pan, but you can also warm them in the microwave.
Lay the tortilla on a flat surface and add 1/2 cup of the Quinoa Black Bean filling towards the bottom.
Add the other toppings...Cheese, tomatoes, cilantro, sour cream.
Then roll the burrito by first folding over the bottom of the tortilla over filling. Then fold in the sides. Then roll if up. Serve and enjoy!
Or to store and reheat later, place on a square piece of aluminum foil on a diagonal, towards the bottom point. Roll it up and then fold the sides under.
