This super easy recipe is one of those you’ll keep going back to over and over again! Full of nutritious ingredients and amazing flavors, it’s also omnivore-approved. Enjoy!


  • 1 large burrito-sized flour tortilla
  • ¼ cup of vegetarian refried beans, heated
  • ½ cup of cooked quinoa (we used Q-cups quick-cook quinoa)
  • Tomatoes, diced, to taste
  • Canned corn, drained, to taste
  • Onion, diced, to taste
  • Guacamole or sliced avocado, to taste
  • Purple cabbage, shredded
  • Cilantro, roughly chopped, to taste
  • Hot sauce or salsa


  1. Warm up your tortilla in a hot pan on both sides (it will take only about 30 seconds per side).
  2. Lay the tortilla on a plate and spread a layer of the refried beans followed by the quinoa, tomatoes, corn, onion, guacamole or avocado, purple cabbage, and cilantro. Be careful not to overstuff.
  3. Once you have all the fillings in place, wrap the tortilla by folding both ends over the filling and then tightly rolling your tortilla until you have a stable burrito. If you’ve never wrapped a burrito before, see our more detailed instructions (and an example video) below.
  4. Warm a pan over medium heat and place burrito, seam down, on the pan. When the tortilla begins to lightly brown, flip over and allow to lightly brown on the other side.
  5. Remove from heat, serve with salsa and/or hot sauce, and enjoy!
