Our quick and easy burritos only take 25 minutes to prepare, but you can also trim that time down considerably by cooking the quinoa the day before you plan to serve them. Store cooked, cooled quinoa in a covered container in the refrigerator, then reheat it in the microwave before loading up each burrito to your liking. We like the burritos with plenty of fresh cilantro, but you could also use shredded romaine lettuce, or even mixed greens. If you haven’t yet experimented with Greek yogurt as a substitute for sour cream, trust us—you won’t taste the difference.
