Quinoa Tabbouleh: a Beautiful Fresh Herb Salad

Fresh herbs are the star in this fresh and tasty take on Tabbouleh made with quinoa and a splash of lime.

Quinoa Tabbouleh Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups prepared quinoa
  • 3 cups finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped mint
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
  • 1 cup chopped cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

 

Tabbouleh Recipe

Directions:

Cook the quinoa according to package directions, taking care to rinse at least five times before cooking to eliminate bitterness.  Allow to cool completely.  Finely chop fresh herbs, add to quinoa, and toss well.  Wisk olive oil, lemon & lime juice, and salt & pepper together, then toss well into quinoa and herb salad.  Add chopped tomatoes and allow to rest for 1 hour before serving.

    I love quinoa tabbouleh especially now that I don’t eat wheat. I like how you used cherry tomatoes and lime in yours!
    I am your neighbour at between naps on the porch!

    This looks wonderful! I’ve been enjoying Ottolenghi’s cookbook Plenty lately and he uses a TON of fresh herbs. It’s fun to start thinking of herbs as the main attraction in a meal, rather than just a garnish or flavoring. And they are always plentiful in the garden!

    Deanne – Hello neighbour!

    Morgan – :)

    Andrea – Yup, that’s why I made it – soooo much parsley.

    Bria – You are so right – herbs are plentiful in the garden, what to do? Will check out that book. Thanks!

    I’m right into quinoa at the moment and always looking for new recipes. I’ll definitely be trying this. I have a linky party every Thursday called Thriving on Thursdays here in Australia. I’d love for you to link up this idea if you have a moment.
