Quinoa Burritos

Lunch is a hard meal sometimes, if you have kids you are trying to get them taken care of, it can I've found turn into a repetitious meal, lots of sandwiches, lots of salads etc..well I wanted something quick for me to put together that was a little out of the ordinary. Lunch for me is right when I get home from work, right before nap time and right when I don't feel like making a whole lot of food. Well I found these burritos to be fast, easy and nutritious. You can top with lettuce, avocado, tomato, anything really! Design your food your way ;)

Quinoa Burrito

1 c vegetable broth
1 c water
1 c quinoa
1 tortilla (I used corn)
1/2 can black beans
3/4 c salsa
2 T nutritional yeast

Heat vegetable broth and water on stove top. Add quinoa when bubbles start on the bottom of the pot. Heat 15 minutes, add beans and nutritional yeast after about 10 minutes continue to heat until Quinoa is cooked. Place quinoa mixture on tortilla top with salsa and any other desired toppings. I put some fresh spinach on top. Pretty fast, healthy and satisfying!!! Enjoy
