Quinoa & Black Bean Wraps Copycat

Quinoa & Black Bean Wraps: A Starbucks Copycat #quinoa #copycat

This was a very unexpected new favorite recipe that I tried recently. I made some slight changes to the original recipe, but I urge any vegan readers or any readers who have vegan friends to check out the original recipe and Lisa's blog, Je Suis Alimentageuse. My version is not vegan and that's where most of my change happened. Corn is out of season here, so I resorted to canned corn.

All the flavors work together perfectly. I am obsessed with quinoa right now - it's just so good! It looks a little crazy, but it's such a great ingredient. I made the Quinoa Stuffed Peppers again because Nick was unable to get it the first time around because he was deployed. It was his first time having quinoa and he was skeptical, but upon devouring the meal, he was every bit as obsessed as I am. He asked if it has some magical attribute where it takes on whatever meat it is paired with, which is a huge compliment. Sometimes I have to twist his arm to eat meatless foods (like this recipe).

What you need:
  • 2/3 cup quinoa, uncooked
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 can corn, drained
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt, to taste
  • Mayo
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Flour tortillas
  1. Mix together quinoa, broth, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, and onion powder in a saucepan. Heat to medium-low and cover. Cook for 20 minutes.
  2. Fluff with a fork and add lime juice.
  3. Mix in corn, black beans, and salt.
  4. Spread a little mayo on each tortilla and sprinkle with some cheese.
  5. Scoop some of the quinoa mixture in the center of each tortilla. Fold in both ends and roll up tightly.
  6. Place seam side down on a foil-lined baking sheet. Spray with olive oil cooking spray.
  7. Bake at 350* for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.
