Black Bean & Quinoa Burritos

This post may include external or affiliate links. Please see our affiliate disclaimer.

The great, grand quinoa-themed recipe extravaganza continues! Today I am sharing these easy-to-make, super tasty, and extra filling quinoa burritos. For anyone who doubts that a vegan burrito can be filling, quinoa is one of the most protein-rich foods you can eat! In fact, quinoa is a complete protein containing all nine essential amino acids. With a super food like that, who needs meat?! Not us! I especially love this recipe because it’s made with pantry staples (something we are all relying on these days) and it’s ready to serve in under 35 minutes! Win-win.

This recipe is going to be a repeat in the upcoming weeks. I hope it is for you, too! When you make this recipe, don’t forget to tag Sweet Pea Living on Facebook or Instagram and use the hashtag #sweetpealiving to share it. I can’t wait to see how this dish turns out for you!

  1. Do yourself a favor and make these NOW! The burritos were so flavorful! I didn’t miss the ground beef at all! 😉 The 1X recipe made plenty, and later in the week I tossed it in a salad. DELICIOUS!
