With all the fresh produce I recently purchased I had to have some fun and play with my food. When I was growing up I loved finger foods. If I could eat it with my hands I was so happy! It turns out that love never went away.
I wanted something delicious, quick and easy for dinner this weekend so I started some quinoa in my rice cooker. I find it's the easiest and quickest way to make quinoa. While the quinoa was cooking, I put on some tunes. It really helps the creative juices flow.
While I grooved to the tunes, I chopped up some veggies. I honestly let our food processor do the work as much as possible. It makes it quick and easy. The colors are so BRIGHT and VIBRANT! Aren't they beautiful!
I heated some corn tortillas on the stove over low heat in my wok! It worked great since it gets so hot, who knew! I added enchilada sauce with taco seasoning to the quinoa, placed it in a warm tortilla and topped it with fresh veggies. It made 6 tacos for dinner and leftovers!
Fresh Quinoa Tacos for dinner! Yum!
