Quinoa Filling: 

1 cup quinoa

1 teaspoon salt

1 jalapeno, diced (use less if you prefer it less spicy)

1 sweet potato, cut into 1-inch cubes 

Tacos and Toppings:

4 tortillas (corn or flour)

1 1/2 cups shaved cabbage

Prepared tomatillo salsa, for topping

Chopped fresh cilantro, for topping

1 lime, sliced


  1. For the quinoa filling: Combine the quinoa, salt, jalapenos, sweet potatoes and 2 cups water in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low and cook until the quinoa is tender and the water has been absorbed, about 20 minutes. Cool slightly, and then fluff with a fork.
  2. For the tacos and toppings: Warm the tortillas and fill each with some of the quinoa filling. Top with the shaved cabbage, tomatillo salsa, cilantro and a squeeze of lime.
