Quinoa is one of my favorite grains for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I am a quinoa fanatic. It has a roasted flavor and a slightly chewy texture that make it excellent alone or in a salad like this. For an even more satisfying meal, you can also add scrambled eggs on top! Quinoa tabbouleh is a modern twist on the traditional Middle Eastern dish known as tabbouleh. This version replaces the traditional bulgur wheat with quinoa, a nutritious and protein-rich grain-like seed. Quinoa tabbouleh offers a gluten-free alternative and adds a nutty flavor and slightly chewy texture to the dish. To make quinoa tabbouleh, cooked quinoa is mixed with finely chopped fresh parsley, mint, tomatoes, cucumbers, and green onions. The salad is then dressed with a tangy mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, and salt. This combination of ingredients creates a vibrant and refreshing salad that is packed with fresh flavors and vibrant colors. Quinoa tabbouleh is not only delicious but also nutritious, as quinoa is a good source of protein, fiber, and various vitamins and minerals. It can be served as a side dish, a light meal on its own, or as part of a mezze platter. The dish is often enjoyed in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine and has gained popularity as a healthy and flavorful alternative to traditional tabbouleh.
