Quinoa Tabbouleh

This delicious twist on traditional tabbouleh substitutes quinoa for bulgur and will round out any well-balanced meal. Mint is a classic herb for tabbouleh, but if it doesn’t fit your taste preferences, parsley makes a solid substitute.

  • ½ cup chopped fresh mint

  • 2 Tbsp. chopped green onions
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tsp. minced fresh onion
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper

Directions

  1. Cook quinoa according to package directions.
  2. While quinoa is cooking, prep and gently stir together remaining ingredients. Add to cooked quinoa and serve warm or chilled.
