Spicy quinoa, buckwheat, and corn in crispy shells with all the fixins.
One of the first recipes I made as a vegetarian was a buckwheat and corn casserole. It was bland and I had a lot of leftovers. So, I seasoned the leftovers with taco spices, served them in shells with lettuce, salsa, etc. This recipe has been my family's favorite taco recipe ever since.

    In a medium saucepan with a tight-fitting lid, combine quinoa, buckwheat and 1-1/2 cups water. Bring to a low boil, reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook 15 minutes. When the water is absorbed, uncover and stir in corn, taco seasoning, and 1/2 cup water. Cook over medium heat, carefully stirring, until water is absorbed, 3 or 4 minutes.
