With nutty quinoa and creamy soy cheese as some of the main ingredients, these crispy Tex-Mex quinoa burritos break the mold when it comes to traditional Tex-Mex fare.
These hearty yet healthy burritos are 100% vegan and gluten-free, yet stay true to traditional flavours of Tex-Mex cuisine with the addition of spicy salsa, cumin, sweet corn, and black beans, all wrapped in a cripsy gluten-free tortilla shell.
These are just as easy to make as traditional burritos and the only difference is that these delicious burritos are packed with healthy and light-tasting ingredients, such as protein-packed quinoa, dairy-free cheese, vitamin k-rich spinach and heart-healty avocados.
The recipe is as simple as combining all the ingredients with cooked quinoa then filling the tortilla shell with the ingredients and sauteeing in a frying pan for a few minutes until browned and cripsy.
There may be one tricky part (that will eventually get easier the more you prepare this and get a knack for it); wrapping the tortilla shell. While there are many methods available to try I find that folding the (short) ends in over the filling, and then folding the sides over so that they overlap works best.
For non-vegans, adding a touch of egg wash to the tortilla pieces that are folded against eachother will help seal the tortilla and prevent the contents from falling out during the cooking process.
