Healthy Meals Vegetarian Friendly

Sriracha Ranch Black Bean and Quinoa Tacos

My healthy vegetarian tacos that is the perfect combination of Midwest and Southwest flavors!

I’ve been stuck at home during COVID-19 quarantine and like most people, been stuffing my face full of comfort food. Pizza rolls….haven’t had them since high school but here I am heating them up for dinner. Enough is enough I told myself. I need to get back to real food and start living healthy again. With a bunch of random items I found in the pantry this is what I came up with.

This is southwest meets the Midwest. Mostly healthy but still has the comfort of good ole ranch. Baby steps
