tofu quinoa burrito with mango salsa

ok, so obviously this should be titled tofu quinoa burrito with mango salsa turned gigantic tofu quinoa soft taco with mango salsa. i have failed again at my life long goal of wrapping a decent burrito. but, fear not, it was delicious! 

yields 2 burritos
mango salsa:
1/2 cup diced mango (pretty small pieces) 
1/2 red onion finely diced
1/4 cup finely chopped red pepper
1/4 lime juice
1 tbl fresh chopped ginger
-mix it all together
-the salsa will be best if it sits in the fridge for a while. 

tofu filling
6 oz firm or extra firm tofu, cubed 
1 portabella mushroom, cut in cubes
1 bell pepper chopped
1 tbl cumin
1 tsp crushed red pepper
salt and pepper
1 tsp olive oil

-spray a frying pan with non-stick spray and add a very small amount of oil
-add the bell pepper and cook until slightly soft
-add the rest of the ingredients with a splash of water
-cook until mushrooms are cooked all the way through

2 tortillas
tofu filling above
refried beans
1/2 cup cooked quinoa
mango salsa
whatever else you want!

-apparently you put all these ingredients into a warm tortilla, being careful not to overstuff, and somehow wrap it so it stays together. or you can be like me, fold it over and call it a soft taco!

This sounds like a fabulous recipe. Thanks for sharing. Quinoa was named as the grain of the future by the United Nations. We are the first to make a vodka from quinoa which provides a natural organic sweetness to the spirit. Check it out at or
By the way, I just discovered Fiddleheads and made them my new favorite veggie. Glad you mentioned them.
