Kale & Quinoa Burritos

Serves 4


1½ cups low-sodium vegetable broth (or water) 

¾ cup quinoa (rinsed) 

1 can black beans (drained and rinsed) 

1 lime, juiced

3 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped

2-3 cups kale, chopped/shredded  

Topping Ingredients:

1 avocado, pitted and diced 

¾ cup cherry tomatoes, diced

¼ cup onion, diced 

1 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped

sea salt & black pepper (to taste)

4 whole wheat tortillas 


1. Cook quinoa in medium-size pot with vegetable broth or water. Heat over medium-high until boiling, then reduce heat to a simmer and cover for about 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork. Add the black beans, kale, cilantro, juice from 1/2 of the lime, and (optional) sea salt and pepper, stirring together until well-combined. 

2. In a separate small bowl, combine the avocado, tomatoes, onion, cilantro, juice from the other 1/2 of the lime, and (optional) sea salt. 

3. On a baking sheet, lay tortillas flat and warm for a few minutes on low heat in oven (until very easy to fold). Note: this can also be done by warming in microwave for about 10 seconds.

4. Begin building your burritos by filling with the quinoa & kale mixture, then topping with the tomato & avocado mixture. Roll burrito, making sure to tuck the sides in tightly and enjoy!
