 Loaded Quinoa Tacos

This loaded Quinoa Taco recipe is a delicious introduction to the idea of a Meatless Monday meal plan. Quinoa is a superfood packed with protein, fiber, and nutrients, and this recipe is used in place of ground beef. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised how well it fares as a substitute. 

Step 1, sautee the cooked quinoa in a saucepan with coconut oil, then add taco seasoning, fresh lime juice, and green onions until warm. Step 2, choose your toppings. A few options we recommend are La Crema, crunchy bell peppers, bibb lettuce, feta cheese, pickled red onions, and salsa. Serve on warm corn or flour tortillas.

The main vegetables in this dish are red, green, and yellow bell peppers, broccoli, and green onion. It calls for Tempeh, a veggie protein made from soybeans. Tempeh is hearty and firm when sauteed and makes for an ideal meat substitute.
