Would you eat it? Meatless Ground Beef Tacos!

NEW ORLEANS - Let's see what Test Kitchen Taylor is cooking up today!

It's Taco Tuesday,  but we're avoiding meat for Lent! Test Kitchen Taylor has the perfect solution - Quinoa Tacos. It really looks like ground beef!

Quinoa Tacos
1 cup raw tri-color, white, or red quinoa
1 cup vegetable broth
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup salsa
1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
1 packet taco seasoning
1 Tbsp olive or avocado oil
Taco Shells
Lettuce, shredded
Heat a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once hot, add rinsed quinoa and toast for 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add vegetable broth and water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Then reduce heat to low, cover with a secure lid, and cook for 15-25 minutes, or until liquid is completely absorbed. Fluff with a fork, then crack the lid and let rest for 10 minutes off heat.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Add cooked quinoa to a large mixing bowl and add remaining ingredients.
Toss to combine.
Spread on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake for 30 minutes.
Remove from oven and make your tacos!
