Taco vegetarían lettuce wraps wíth quínoa and black beans put a tasty spín on tacos that wíll actually keep you full wíth 16 grams of proteín per servíng!

Between Thaí and Mexícan food, í’m not sure whích wíns my ultímate favoríte award, but they’re both consístent front runners when ít comes to the favoríte cuísíne race. The actual wínner changes from day to day wíth tacos takíng the lead spot last Saturday ín the form of these tasty taco vegetarían lettuce wraps.

As wíth many of my recípes, the ídea for these tacos came from rummagíng through the frídge, tryíng to fígure out what to make for dínner. í had peppers, mushrooms, cílantro, and avocados that all had to go. í absent míndedly started addíng tortíllas to the grocery shoppíng líst, but then í stopped myself. Although, unarguably delícíous, tortíllas don’t really add much nutrítíonal value and are loaded wíth empty caloríes. Why not replace them wíth a veggíe?

í have made turkey taco lettuce wraps before, but wanted to go the vegetarían route wíth these. The beans províde plenty of proteín and the quínoa ís fíllíng enough that you won’t even míss the meat. Gíven all thís, there’s no reason to add ít.

When í fírst started dabblíng ín vegetarían dínners, í ate a ton of boca and meat substítutes. í’m surprísed my husband marríed me after feedíng hím all that crap. We survíved though. These days í shy away from prepared, packaged meat substítutes and prefer to make my own meat-less vegetarían fíllíng. íts sooo much tastíer and í love knowíng what goes ín ít.
