Gluten Free Quinoa Tabouli Salad

Ingredients:


1 C Uncooked Quinoa, soaked, rinsed and drained

(Don’t skip this step – soak your quinoa for 4h-overnight. Quinoa is gluten-free, rich and complex whole grain that can be difficult to digest)


1/2 C Scallions


3 C Fresh Parsley
 (2 bunches)

1 C Fresh Mint


1 C Grape tomatoes
 or 2 medium tomatoes

1/4 C Extra Virgin Olive Oil
 - good EVVO is the key

3 Lemons - zest and juice

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste



Directions:


1. Cook the quinoa per the package. Chill quickly by spreading the quinoa on a baking sheet for 10 minutes.

2. Finely chop scallions, parsley, mint, and tomatoes and add to the quinoa.

3. Whisk EVOO, lemon zest/juice, and salt/pepper until blended.

4. Add to quinoa and veggies and mix until thoroughly combined. Chill before serving.


This salad is great as a main dish or with the protein of your choice. It also works wonderfully in gluten free wraps where you can get creative with your toppings.


Enjoy!
