Healthy Quinoa Tabouli With Parsley & Mint

Recipe ideas for quinoa are the most popular posts my blog readers request, and with good reason. Quinoa is a South American superfood that has been cultivated for thousands of years. Technically a seed, it’s often used like a grain in cooking because if it’s nutty, chewy texture and easy preparation.

What makes this gluten-free seed extra special is that it’s a complete protein, meaning that it contains all essential amino acids needed to build muscle. It’s also an excellent source of magnesium, iron and dietary fiber. It can be used in both savory and sweet dishes; I always tell people to give it a try and substitute it anywhere they would use rice or couscous.

Quinoa Tabouli Recipe

Tabouli (or Tabbouleh) is a delicious Middle Eastern parsley and mint salad that’s typically made with bulgar wheat or couscous. Parsley and mint make an amazing flavor combination, and paired with the rest of the ingredients here it’s really a fun dish to eat. Adding mint to savory dishes isn’t as common in North America so if you haven’t ever tried it I highly suggest it–you’ll be hooked.

Subbing out the bulgar for quinoa makes tabouli even more nutritious, and I think even more delicious. I love serving it with homemade hummus and eating it as is with a spoon or like a salad over a bed of lettuce.
