"Tabbouleh" with tuna

Submitted by: BUUKWORM14

Introduction

I adapted a recipe to use my quinoa. You can sub in bulgar or some other grain if you want (bulgar is traditional).

This makes a HUGE amount of food. It's a great dish for parties since it will serve many many people. The fish is very subtle- don't worry about it getting to strong as it sits.

Also, given how many veggies are in this, I count it as 1 serving, but that's your call.

Ingredients

    1 cup quinoa, rinsed thoroughly
    Water
    10 scallions, white bulbs only, sliced thin
    2 cucumbers, peeled, halved lengthwise, seeded, and cut into 1/4-inch dice
    10 radishes, sliced thin
    2 carrot, grated
    1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
    1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
    2 cans solid white tuna packed in water
    4 tablespoon(s) olive oil
    1/2 cups lemon juice (from 3 lemons)
    1 teaspoons salt
    1/2 teaspoons fresh-ground black pepper

Directions

Prepare quinoa according to package instructions.

When the quinoa is cool, stir in the scallions, cucumber, radishes, carrot, parsley and mint.

Add the tuna, the olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Mix gently to combine.

The longer tabbouleh sits, the better it gets. As the juices from the vegetables soak into the quinoa, the flavors marry. Try some the next day.

You can use tuna in oil, but then use the oil from that and take out 2 tbsp of added oil.

1 serving= about 2 cups.
