  • 150g quinoa
  • olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ½-1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 vine tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 400g tin black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 200g tinned or frozen and defrosted sweetcorn
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • a small bunch coriander, chopped
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled, stoned and roughly chopped
  • 1 small red chilli, seeded and finely chopped
  • 4 large flour tortillas


  • STEP 1

    Cook the quinoa in boiling salted water for 20-25 minutes until tender. Pour through a sieve and leave to drain thoroughly while you make the filling.

  • STEP 2

    Heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan and fry the onion until soft. Add the garlic and spices and fry for another minute. Add 1 tomato, the black beans and sweetcorn and cook for 5 minutes before stirring in the drained quinoa, half the lime juice and half the coriander. Cook for a few minutes until the quinoa has warmed through.

  • STEP 3

    Gently mix the remaining tomato, lime juice and coriander with the avocado and chilli. Season well. Pile the quinoa mix into the middles of the wraps, top with the avocado mix. Fold in the sides, then roll up into burritos to eat. Wrap in foil and cut in half if the burritos are well stuffed and you need to keep them held together.
