As much as I love beans, lentils, tofu and chickpeas…. I was eager to spice things up in the kitchen and came up with some seriously good quinoa meat that goes perfectly with Mexican.
FIRST OF ALL:
Preheat that oven to 180 degrees!
INGREDIENTS:-1.5 cups of quinoa
-Splash of water
-1 Tin of black beans
GIVE US THEM HERBS:
Totally obsessed with herbs and spices
-Dash of paprika-1 tsp Cumin seeds
-Dash of Chilli flakes
-S & P (of course)
–1 tsp Turmeric
-3 tsp of tomato paste-1 tsp of coconut oil (or oil of your choice)
Cook quinoa accordingly. When it’s ready strain and then mix in all the herbs, spices and sauces as well as the tin of strained black beans.
Throw it onto a hot pan with oil and cook for 5 minutes! Get that smasher out and press down the black beans (you may need to add a splash of water if mixture becomes too dry)
Then cook in oven at 180 degrees for 15-20 min until crunchy and golden
Serve in a taco bowl, in taco shells or just grab the spoon and go for your life.
