Ingredients (makes 8 wraps):

  • 1 can of black beans
  • 200g of (cooked) quinoa
  • 1 medium avocado (chopped)
  • 1 red pepper (chopped)
  • 50g grated cheddar
  •  ½ teaspoon of cumin powder
  • 4 tortilla wraps (normal or wholemeal)
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Pinch of salt & pepper (to taste) 
  • Ketchup or salsa to serve (optional)

Directions:

  1. In a large skillet or frying pan placed over low heat, combine the black beans, red pepper, olive oil, and cumin powder; stirring thoroughly to combine. Add the pre-cooked quinoa and allow it to cook just until it becomes hot. (Alternatively, you can mix the ingredients in a microwave safe bowl and then heat in the microwave).
  2. Once the mixture is hot, remove from heat and add chopped avocado.
  3. Season with your lemon juice, before adding the salt and pepper to taste. 
  4. Spoon the quinoa and beans mixture onto the flour tortillas, dividing evenly.
  5. Top each tortilla with grated cheese, salsa, ketchup and/or any other sauce you would like to try!
