Tacos with a Twist!
or.... Ta-quin-os perhaps???
I had some leftover quinoa, and leftover chili from this new recipe, and so I decided to pair them up in tacos. I also topped them with guacamole, grated jicama, and cilantro. We had a salad on the side, and what a delicious meal that was easy, easy, easy!!! Hmmm, will have to make that "ta-quin-os" a quick recipe or note in the new book!
Oh, for the kids, well the older girl loves tacos too, but without the chili (too spicy for her). She ate hers with heaping amounts of guacamole. I mix the quinoa in her guacamole so it doesn't scatter everywhere! She also had some seasoned mashed beans and grated vegan rella (she loves the stuff, I know, many of you may not!)
The baby had a little of the mashed avocado/quinoa, and also loves the grated veganrella. She likes beans pureed, but not whole or mashed, so I usually have hummus or some other bean dip on hand for her. Plus, she loves her bread, so instead of tacos I cut up some kamut bread and drizzled it with the Balsamic-Flax Oil combo that is in Vive le Vegan!. I've mentioned before that we have this at our table every meal. Not as a salad dressing, but to drizzle on our foods. Easy, tasty way to get the omega-3's in the diet!!
