It looks a bit messy, but it was delish!
This is pretty fast to make if you have the Taco Paste made up in the refrigerator (recipe below-- it keeps for ages!). We had a rather late dinner last night and I had some already reconstituted Soy Curls in the fridge, and some ripe avocados that needed using, so this is what I came up with-- DH loved it! Healthy, spicy, lots of textures.
BRYANNA'S QUINOA TACO BOWL
Serves 3, more or less
Corn and Avocado Salsa:
Spicy Soy Curls:
3 cups reconstituted Soy Curls (3 ounces dry)
about 1 tablespoon Bryanna's Taco Paste (recipe below)
a few sprays of oil
Garnish: Tofu Sour Cream (recipe here, or use a commercial version)
Mix the 2 types of quinoa together in a medium pot with the water and salt. Bring to a boil, then cover and turn down to a low simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes; turn the heat off and let stand about 5 minutes.
To make the Salsa, mix all of the ingredients together in a medium bowl. Refrigerate until serving time.
In a medium bowl, mix together the reconstituted Soy Curls with the Taco Paste, rubbing it into the Soy Curls with your fingers until evenly distributed. Heat a large nonstick skillet and spray it with a few squirts of oil. Add the Soy Curls and stir-fry for a few minutes just to heat and slightly brown.
Place a scoop of quinoa in each serving bowl, top with 1/3 of the Soy Curls and add a pile of the Salsa alongside. Drizzle Tofu Sour Cream over the Soy Curls and serve!
All the best,
