A fresh & light quinoa tabouleh salad makes a great gluten-free & vegetarian side dish. Tabouleh is traditionally prepared with bulgur rather than quinoa, but this modification makes the recipe even healthier!

Recipe Ingredients for Quinoa Tabouleh

1 cup Quinoa
1 medium Cucumber, Peeled
3 medium raw Tomato Roma
0.5 medium raw Bell Pepper Green
4 clove Garlic
6 medium (4-1/8" long) Onions, Spring Or Scallions
1 cup Parsley
8 oz Mint
2.66 oz Extra Virgin Olive Oil
0.33 cup Lemon Juice

Recipe Directions for Quinoa Tabouleh

  1. In a large strainer, rinse quinoa to remove bitter taste. Place 1 C quinoa in 2 C water and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for 10-12 minutes or until most the water has been absorbed by the quinoa. Place in a large bowl and allow to cool completely.

  2. Chop the tomatoes, green onions, green bell pepper, cucumber (peeled), mint, and parsley. Once the quinoa has cooled, add the chopped vegetables and herbs and mix well.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together 1/3 C olive oil, 1/3 C lemon juice, and 4 garlic cloves. Pour over mixture.

  4. Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
