Okay, these may exists somewhere, but I’ve never seen them anywhere so I’ll take credit for now. The idea hit me while looking at a picture of taco meat and thinking that the meat looks a lot like quinoa.
So I cooked up some black quinoa, since it looks the most like ground beef. I used a little less water than normal so that it was stil a bit less cooked and chewy.
Then I put the cooked quinoa in a frying pan like I would have with ground beef. Then I mixed up taco seasoning like I would have with meat and simmered it until the liquid was absorbed. These are unreal good. My daughter ate them up!
For the first batch I just used my taco meat, tomatoes and onions on corn tortillas. My second batch I added vegan refried beans and had some guac. Yum. Next time I might add the taco seasoning to the water when I cook the quinoa and see how that goes. What do you think?
