  • 8 whole wheat tortillas
  • 1 cup of quinoa
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin or taco seasoning or more to taste
  • 2 cans of black beans
  • 1 large yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • ¼ cup of creamy vegan salad dressing or your choice of sauce or salsa
  • 2 Tablespoons of Frank's Red Hot Sauce, optional


  • Rinse quinoa well, then drain really well. Place both water and quinoa in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Cover, and simmer 10-15 minutes until halos appear. When finished, remove from heat and let sit for about 5 minutes. Add cumin or taco seasoning to taste and stir.
  • Meanwhile, heat both cans of black beans in saucepan over medium heat.
  • If needed, combine any dressing and hot sauce in a small cup.
  • Heat tortillas and layer with quinoa, beans (drain them with a strainer spoon before you place in burritos), onions, tomatoes, avocado, and a drizzle of sauce mixture. Wrap and enjoy!


Quinoa is great for making ahead. Make a big batch the next time you serve it and you can use the leftovers to make this recipe.
