Ingredients

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

Directions

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. 

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.
