  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • Juice & zest of 2 limes
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 can black beans drained and rinsed (doesn't need to be shown on video)
  • 2 avocados
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Sliced red cabbage
  • Chopped cilantro to garnish
  • 10 corn tortillas


  • Add veggie broth, quinoa and lime juice to a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce to simmer for 12 – 15 minutes until all the liquid has been absorbed.
  • Remove from the heat and let cool for 10 - 15 minutes. Stir in lime zest, ½ cup cilantro and season with salt & pepper.
  • In a separate bowl, mash avocado until almost smooth. Stir in onion, lime juice and ¼ cup cilantro. Season with salt & pepper.
  • To assemble tacos, place ¼ - ½ cup of quinoa mixture onto the base of each tortilla. Top with black beans, cabbage and the guacamole. Garnish with cilantro (and/or hot sauce!) and enjoy immediately!
