Today, they are celebrated for their versatility and ability to showcase a wide range of flavours and textures.

Ingredients

For the Taco Bowls:

  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Superfood Toppings:

  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 1/2 cup shredded purple cabbage
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese (optional)

For the Creamy Avocado Dressing:

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

1. Cook the Quinoa:

  • In a medium saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Add the quinoa, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the quinoa is cooked and the water is absorbed. Fluff with a fork and set aside.

2. Prepare the Taco Bowls:

  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced bell peppers, onion, and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender.
  • Add the cooked quinoa to the skillet, along with the chilli powder, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper (if using), salt, and pepper. Stir to combine and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, until the quinoa is heated through and the spices are fragrant.

3. Make the Creamy Avocado Dressing:

  • In a blender or food processor, combine the avocado, Greek yoghurt, cilantro, garlic, lime juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Blend until smooth and creamy. If the dressing is too thick, add a splash of water to thin it out.

4. Assemble the Taco Bowls:

  • Divide the quinoa mixture evenly among four bowls. Top each bowl with sliced avocado, cherry tomatoes, black beans, corn kernels, shredded purple cabbage, and crumbled feta cheese (if using).
  • Drizzle the creamy avocado dressing over the taco bowls and garnish with chopped cilantro.

5. Serve and Enjoy:

  • Serve the taco bowls immediately, with additional lime wedges on the side if desired. Enjoy these nutritious and flavorful Superfood Taco Bowls!
