Quinoa tabbouleh salad

I am sharing today a delightful quinoa tabbouleh salad which is simply delicious, refreshing and easy to make.

I make this when I am in a hurry, because you can simply leave the ingredients chopped in your fridge and mix it whenever you want to eat.  

It has a citrus taste from the lemon, which I love, but you can also taste all the other ingredients combined. 

In shorter words, I don’t know how to explain the taste exactly, but I love it and I hope you will too. 

So, let’s check our tabbouleh recipe below.

  • 1 cup of cooked quinoa
  • 1 cucumber (cut in cubes)

  • 80g of flat parsley (about 1 bunch), finely chopped

  • 3 tablespoon of olive oil
step: Cook the quinoa
  1. Combine 1 cup of rinsed red/white quinoa with 2 cups of water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat to low, cover with the saucepan lid and simmer until the quinoa is soft, it takes about 15 minutes. Set aside until it is cool.
  3. You can make a big portion and leave the quinoa ready for a few salads.
