Meatless Monday - Week 2

I'm a little late getting my Meatless Monday recap up.  I totally got sucked into the new show Ready for Love on NBC.  I don't usually like dating shows but this one got me hooked.  I'm so glad he sent Leah home!

Week 2 of Meatless Monday went much better than our first week.  I've been reading a lot about quinoa on different blogs that I follow and have seen several recipes for it on Pinterest so I knew I wanted to make something quinoa based.  Quinoa is packed with protein and the few times I've had it I thought it was pretty tasty.  I found lots of recipes I want to try on Pinterest but I chose Quinoa Tacos because we love Mexican food and the recipe looked fairly simple.  Plus I already had most of the ingredients.   

These tacos were a winner!  Very flavorful.  We topped with lettuce, tomato, avocado, and some plain Greek yogurt.  I don’t see myself making this for a week night dinner, too much prep time for this girl.  When I come home from work, I need something easy I can just pop in the oven or cook on the stove quick.  I will probably make this again on a weekend and it makes plenty to have for leftovers for lunch the next day or dinner later in the week.
