For The Avocado Dressing

  • 1 Medium Avocado
  • 1 Tbsp Olive oil Can replace with vegetable broth or even apple cider vinegar for oil free sauce
  • 3 Tbsp almond milk
  • 1 Tbsp Nutritional yeast
  • 1 Tbsp Onion powder
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tsp Pepper

For The Quinoa Tacos

  • 2 Cups Quinoa Dry
  • 4 Cups Water
  • 1 Tbsp Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Onion powder
  • 2 Cups Shredded purple cabbage
  • 5 medium Whole wheat tortillas


For The Avocado Sauce

  1. Take one medium to large avocado in a medium mixing bowl and mush up with a fork

  2. Add 1 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional) 1 tbsp onion powder, 1 tbsp garlic powder, 1 tsp salt, and 1 tsp pepper and mush up with the fork again

  3. Then add the olive oil (or vegetable broth) and use a whisk to mix and blend until thoroughly combined 

  4. Lastly add the almond milk to the avocado sauce and whisk again until thoroughly combined 

For The Quinoa Tacos

  1. For The Quinoa bring 4 cups water to a boil. Add 2 cups quinoa to the pot and lower heat to a simmer. Stir periodically.

  2. Cook for 12-15 minutes. You will end up with about 4 cups cooked quinoa. 

  3. Add 1 tbsp salt (or more to taste) 1 tbsp pepper and 1 tbsp onion powder and stir again

  4. I also like to heat up the tortillas in a frying pan to make them a little crispy

  5. Scoop quinoa evenly into 5 whole wheat tortillas, add shredded cabbage and top with avocado taco sauce
