Very Good 4.2/5

The Tabouli recipe is a healthful and delicious Mediterranean food recipe prepared with quinoa, mint, garlic, tomatoes, green onions, olive oil and lemon. An excellent picnic food idea, it tastes great chilled or at room temperature.

The original recipe used 2c cracked wheat soaked for 30 min in hot water then wrung out and added into the salad. I added the quinoa instead.

This is set up for dried beans. To use canned beans use 3.5 cups of kidney beans and 3.5 cups garbanzo beans.

I only need to feed me and my husband, so I end up with days worth of left overs. My favorite thing to do with the left overs is to put them in an ovenproof dish and directly cover with cornbread dough, then bake according to the box.
