The English Recipe For Quinoa Tabouleh
- 1 ½ cup quinoa cooked and drained
- 1 bunch of parsley chopped
- 30-40 cherry tomatoes cut in half
- 3 green onions chopped
- 1 cucumber peeled, deseeded, and cut into cubes
- Fresh mint leaves chopped (optional)
- Lime juice from 1-2 limes
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Mix all the ingredients in a medium/large bowl. Adjust salt and pepper as needed. Add lime juice if desired.
- Refrigerate for 20 minutes.
- Serve chilled over lettuce leaves, in a pitta bread, or with falafels.
• For the parsley, you can use the stems as well.
• You can use the green and the white part of the green onions.
• You don’t need to peel the cucumber if you don’t want to. It tastes great with the skin too.
• If you don’t have cherry tomatoes, you can use any type of tomatoes but make sure to take out the seeds to prevent the salad to become too liquid.
