Katelyn Drake, a lifelong vegetarian based in Oklahoma City, Okla., makes these quick, filling tacos for both dinner parties and weeknight dinners at home. She suggests adjusting the spices as you go: “Don’t be afraid to add a fresh jalapeño if you want more heat!” Serve with avocado slices, cilantro, and a squeeze of lime.
Heat oil in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and celery, and cook 5 minutes, or until soft. Add garlic, cumin, chili powder, and cayenne, and sauté 1 minute. Stir in tomatoes with liquid. Cook 2 minutes, then stir in quinoa, carrots, and broth. Cover, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 20 to 25 minutes, or until quinoa is tender and liquid is absorbed. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Mix in black beans and corn. Serve in tortillas.
