Vegan Quinoa Taco Filling:
- 1 cup quinoa rinsed
- 14 oz diced tomatoes with green chilies or diced with jalapeños
- 15 oz black beans can, drained and rinsed
- ½ bell pepper red, diced
- 1 cup corn frozen
- 1 tsp garlic
- ½ onion diced
- 1 tsp olive oil or coconut oil
- 1 cup water
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp paprika
- 2 tsp chili powder
- lettuce I used romaine hearts
Turn the Instant Pot to sauté. Add the oil. When it is hot, sauté the onions, garlic, bell peppers,
and quinoa until fragrant (about 1 minute).
Mix in the rest of the ingredients. Close the lid and turn the pressure valve to sealing. Cook on
high pressure for 1 min and let the pressure release naturally.
Turn off the Instant Pot, remove the lid, and let cool for about 5-8 minutes. There will be a little
liquid left, but it will absorb as the filling cools. Fill your wraps, garnish, and serve.
Grease the slow cooker insert with the olive oil.
Mix all the ingredients together in the slow cooker (minus lettuce, avocado, and cilantro).
Add the lid and let cook on high for 3-4 hours. Turn the slow cooker off, give it a quick stir, and let cool for 8-10 minutes to allow any excess liquid to be absorbed.
Assemble, garnish, and serve.
Mix all the ingredients together in a large skillet or stock pot (minus lettuce, avocado, and cilantro).
