Tri-color Quinoa and Greens Taco Filling

This recipe is one of my favorites because it has a ton of leeway. No red peppers? Use green peppers or toss in the leftover cooked veggies from last night. No quinoa? Leftover millet or even brown rice would do the job just fine. Just imagine cleaning out the fridge one a week on taco night!

What follows is my very own recipe. This was originally a recipe I got from a regional cookbook called Southern Sideboards, which is put out by a Junior League group in Mississippi, I think. It was a decidedly non-vegan, non-healthful recipe, which I first made low fat and have now evolved again.
