Quinoa Tabboule

Quinoa Tabboule




  • 2 cups quinoa

  • 1 cucumber, chopped

  • 1 small tomato, chopped

  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped

  • 1/2 cup fresh mint, chopped

  • 2 cups chopped fresh parsley

  • Sprinkle granulated garlic

  • Optional: add almonds 


  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • Black pepper to taste


  1. Rinse the quinoa under cold running water and drain well.

  2. Combine the 2 cups rinsed quinoa with 4 cups water in a saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, then decrease the heat a bit to maintain a gentle simmer. Cook until the quinoa has absorbed all of the water, about 10 to 20 minutes 

  3. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.

  4. Serve immediately or chill for future use, up to 3 days.
