Quinoa Tabbouleh
Write a review
  1. 1 cup quinoa
  2. 2 cups water
  3. 1/4 cup olive oil
  4. 2 large tomatoes
  5. 1/2 cup chopped onions
  6. 2/3 cup chopped parsley
  7. 1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
  8. 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  9. salt
  10. pepper
  1. To make the quinoa, first rinse one cup of quinoa in a mesh colander under running water. That washes away the bitter saponins on the surface.
  2. Dump the rinsed quinoa into a medium sized pan on the stove. Add two cups of water and bring the mixture to a boil.
  3. Cover and simmer for fifteen to twenty minutes, until the water is absorbed. Once it’s done, remove from heat and fluff the quinoa with a fork.
  4. Let the quinoa cool, then toss in the rest of your ingredients.
  5. Add more olive oil, salt or pepper, and/or lemon juice to taste.
  6. If you have time, cover and let the salad chill in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight, to let the flavors blend together.
