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

Ingredients:

  • Quinoa
  • black beans
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 onion
  • arugula

  2. Drain a can of black beans and add to the cooked quinoa mixture and set aside.
