Quinoa Tabbouleh

Quinoa Tabbouleh

The superfood, gluten-free quinoa with its nutty flavor blends perfectly with the taste of mint, cilantro, and cucumber. Tang it up with lemon juice + cherry tomatoes and you’ll have a delicious salad in no time.


Quinoa Tabbouleh

This salad is full of proteins (thanks to Quinoa) and is really filling. It means you can prepare it as a standalone lunch or dinner. I use an Instant Pot to cook the quinoa – makes cooking much faster. đŸ™‚
