Quinoa Burrito or Taco Filling


I have been getting really creative with nutritional yeast lately! Trying it everywhere and frankly I just love the stuff. Usually when we make these burritos I don't add the the yeast but tried it tonight and loved it! Thought I would share..... by the way, there were none left over and I usually have a salad with dinner but skipped it tonight and had seconds YUM!


1 cup quinoa
2 cups vegetable broth
1 cup cooked black/red/pinto beans
1/4 - 1/2 cup nutritional yeast (to taste)
Sea Salt (to taste)
White Pepper (to taste)
Garlic Powder to taste (optional)


Toast dry quinoa in pan until fragrant. Add vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer until tender. Add remaining ingredients cover, and heat over low flame until beans are warm.

I served these topped with our go to homemade taco sauce and they were AMAZING!!!!

This would be great filling for a burrito. My FAMILY wouldn't think so but I'd love it! Thanks!

Debbie it is so easy to make you can cut the portion down to 1/2 cup quina just for you! It's a one pan dish!

Sounds great! I always buy my quinoa in bulk- can I still toast it without rinsing it first? Ive never tried it! Also- is the yeast just for taste- could I skip it?

So glad to find another quinoa recipe out there!! THanks!

Hi Regan! You can skip the rinsing but I would go organic! As for the nutritional yeast you can skip it too but the flavor will be bland, I would season the quinoa to taste.
