Quinoa Tabouli

  • 1/2 cup parsley (packed down)
  • 4-5 scallions
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves (packed down)
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • Sea Salt
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
  • 3 cups quinoa, cooked
  • 1 cucumber, seeded and diced
  • 1 tomato, seeded and diced

In a food processor pulse the parsley, scallion, mint, lemon, olive oil, garlic and sea salt until finely pureed.  In a large mixing bowl, combine cooked quinoa, cucumber and tomato. Pour the pureed dressing on top and toss to coat evenly.

    And what are the red pieces on the picture? this recipe seems incomplete…I hate when some chefs do that! I imagine they are tomatoes, …I also dont use mint on this:)

    • @Hebbel – good catch! Yes, it is a tomato. I will adjust the recipe. Thank you.

    Maybe it’s red bell pepper. If there are some ingredients missing, I’m will to doctor it up.

    • @disqus_lUazQtEd41:disqus – it’s a tomato, but you can use a red pepper if you like that better.


    Substituting the nutritionally- packed quinoa over the usual processed cracked wheat is a no-brainer. Millet can also be used, albeit a little heavy. Cracked whole wheat berries just don’t work.
