Tabbouleh salad with quinoa instead of bulgar

Submitted by: TRUEBLU4YOU

Introduction

I usually make a double batch of this. It's great to have it on hand all the time. :-) And the quinoa was used so I could make it gluten free. Salt and pepper should be 'to taste'. Other recipes add olive oil. I decide not to because it doesn't seem to add anything to the taste or texture, and therefore the extra fat grams are not worth putting it in.

Ingredients

    Ingredients:
    1/2 cup dry whole grain quinoa
    5 plum or roma tomatoes chopped
    1/2 cup chopped raw onions (white or yellow)
    1 cup chopped cucumber (peeled)
    3 cups chopped fresh parsley
    3 cloves (or 1 Tbsp) chopped or minced garlic
    1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
    Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Boil 1 cup of water and add 1/2 cup of quinoa. Cook on low/simmer until water is absorbed, about 20+ min. (Or follow the directions on the package you have). It should end up as soft as cooked rice when done. While that is cooking, chop tomatoes, onion, cucumber, and parsley and add to a big bowl. After the quinoa is done and cooled, add it to the chopped veggie mix and then add the garlic, salt, pepper and lemon juice. Taste and add more spices if desired.

Split into 6 servings (approx 1 heaping cup each)
