Quinoa Burrito Bowl

As you all know Quinoa is very versatile grain, you can put the flavor in it and it will absorb like a sponge. So here we go again, with one more idea how to use quinoa in Mexican food. Instead of rice, you can make quinoa as a base and add all your toppings for a burrito and your bowl, healthier looking and test delicious is ready to eat. I had it vegan oven fried "chic"ken on a side to get extra protein but you can have it as it is with or you can add regular chicken, beef or your choice of protein in it.

Ingredients :

1 cup washed and cooked quinoa
1 tbsp oil
1 onion chopped
1 clove garlic chopped
1/4 cup drained and rinsed can black beans
Few strings of cilantro washed and chopped
2 tbsp Paprika powder
1 1tbsp Taco seasoning
Lime juice and salt as per taste

For Toppings

Refried beans
Caramalised onion and mushrooms
Sour cream and salsa

Method : 

Washed and cooked quinoa and keep it aside.

Heat the pan, add oil in it.

Add garlic and onion and cook till its translucent.

Add beans and all the spices and mix it.

Cook for 1 minute.

Add cooked quinoa and mix it nicely.

Take it out from heat and add cilantro and lime juice.

Make four part of the cooked quinoa.

Take one part, add all your toppings on quinoa or you can make it like what I did it. Spread it on a bowl and enjoy it.
