Servings: 6 tortillas
- 2/3 cup quinoa
- 1 cup vegetable broth
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 cup corn, from 1 ear of corn
- 1 cup cooked chickpeas
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
- 2 tablespoon lime juice, approximately 1 lime
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
- 1 tablespoon hummus
- Baby spinach leaves
- 6 Flour tortillas (large burrito size)
I always rinse my quinoa vigorously before cooking it up. To do this, place the quinoa in a bowl with enough water to cover it by about one inch. Rub the quinoa between your palms vigorously in the water. The water should become cloudy from the saponin, a bitter protective coating on the seeds, being rubbed off. Repeat three times and then rinse under running water. I use a fine mesh strainer for this.
Mix together the rinsed quinoa, broth, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, and onion powder in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, cover, reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes. You'll know it's done when the seed looks like curly-q's.
Pile the quinoa into a large bowl and stir in the corn, beans, tomatoes and lime juice. Stir in the salt to taste.
Spread the hummus on each tortilla, lightly cover with spinach leaves, and spoon about 1/3 cup of the quinoa mix in a heaped row, slightly off center. Fold one side of the tortilla over the quinoa and roll up fairly tightly. Use a toothpick to hold it closed.
