Complete Plant Protein: Quinoa Taco

Quinoa Dietary Benefits:

Though technically a seed, Quinoa is classified as a whole grain. It is a great source of plant protein and fiber.  One cup of cooked quinoa provides about 8 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber. Quinoa contains all nine essential amino acids that our bodies cannot make on their own, making it a "complete protein."  

Quinoa is also a good source of: 

  • Manganese
  • Phosphorus
  • Magnesium
  • Folate
  • Thiamin (Vitamin B1)
