A fresh, tasty and super healthy recipe for tabbouleh that is made with quinoa! This cleansing quinoa salad recipe is also vegan and gluten-free.
If you do have some cooked quinoa in your fridge and don’t know what to do with it, this little salad would be a great choice. I really felt I needed it after Christmas. Well, I actually made something similar for Christmas, but let’s pretend.
There’s not much to explain here. You cook the quinoa, let it cool off. In the mean time chop parsley super thinly as if it’s your life’s purpose.
As you can see – I couldn’t do that. No idea why that parsley always ends up so huge. Delicious nevertheless. Then comes tomato, some onion and let’s not forget a ton of lemon juice. And pepper. Tada.
You’ve got a delicious and refreshing quinoa salad that you can serve with ANYTHING. Hummus, falafels, fish, meat – your choice.
Just a little warning: This would not do well for a long time in the fridge, because tomatoes. So serve immediately or in 1-2 hours.

PS. I was almost going to slip up today and decide not to post anything, but I remembered my resolution to come here every Monday and Thursday, so you cannot imagine how proud of myself I am for actually doing it when I was only wanting to basically do some mindless tasks. Anyway, I’ll be back on Thursday with longer post about gut health and I’m very excited about it. Hope you have a great week, happy Monday!
