Gluten Free Tabbouleh Recipe

This is probably the best quinoa tabouleh you have ever, ever eaten. In a million years. I promise.   There are a few secret ingredients that make all the difference – and really, *really* set it apart from your typical parsley-based dish… curious?  Come take a look….

I *love* this salad- eat it all the time.  The coriander and mint give the salad a really subtle flavour layer- along with the natural sweetness of a touch of carrot and suddenly, there’s a certain “je ne sais quoi” that will make you come back for more. And more. Annnnd…. again lol…  and you can’t even tell what it is-  its not over powering.  Trust me, if you don’t like coriander, just try it, this ONCE in this salad.  You’ll be pleasantly surprised.

BTW-  I marked this salad as falling under “Paleo” diets-  although quinoa is grain-like, its actually a seed.  Nuts and seeds are permitted in the paleo diet, just go easy on it.  If you prefer to be a bit more hardcore, get a raw head of cauliflower,  chop it finely in the food processor, and then gently steam and drain the chopped bits and toss iin the salad to replace the quinoa.

    I’ve recently been experimenting with cooking quinoa by using a 1 to 1 1/2 ratio and it works much better than the usual 1 part grain, 2 parts liquid. But I haven’t tried soaking it overnight. That’s next. Thanks for the heads up.

    I put quinoa is salad all the time, so I am excited to try this combo. Sounds delish!
