Quinoa Tabbouleh

Great retro summertime side dish, updated! Gluten-free and high in protein.


Prepared Quinoa (found near rice, couscous and risotto)

1 large cucumber, peeled and diced

4 Roma tomatoes, diced, or 10 to 12 cherry tomatoes, halved

1 bunch scallions, sliced

1 cup fresh parsley, chopped

Juice of 2 ripe lemons

1/4 cup olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste

1 clove minced garlic if desired



Prepare quinoa according to package directions, using one cup dry quinoa. Fluff with fork and spread on baking sheet or silicone mat to cool. In a large bowl, whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper (and garlic, if using). Add cucumber, tomatoes, scallions and parsley. Add cooled quinoa and mix gently. Can be prepared a day ahead, allowing all flavors to mix.
