Quinoa Tabouli

Adapted from: Ceres Project

Prep time: 5-10 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Total time: 15-20 minutes

Serves: 5

Ingredients

For the Tabouli:

1 ¼ cup quinoa, soaked for at least one hour and up to overnight

¼ cup halved grape tomatoes

¼ cup carrots, finely chopped

½ bunch green onions, minced

¼ cup finely chopped mint

½ cup finely chopped parsley

For the Dressing:

⅓ cup EVOO

⅓ cup lemon juice

½ tsp. salt

⅛ tsp. all spice

Instructions

1. Drain the quinoa and rinse well. Place it in a saucepan with about ½ cup of water and a pinch of salt. Bring to a simmer, cover and cook until the water is absorbed and the quinoa is tender (about 8 to 10 minutes). Turn out into a bowl and cool.

2. Whisk together the dressing ingredients. Taste and adjust with more lemon or olive oil as needed. Add the dressing to the quinoa and toss to coat the grains evenly.

3. When the quinoa is cool, add the remaining ingredients and toss well. Taste and adjust as needed with a bit more salt or lemon juice. Enjoy!
