A traditional Lebanese dish made even healthier by switching out the normal bulgur wheat with quinoa. Quinoa is a high protein, high fibre grain containing all the essential amino acids. It makes a perfect sub for the bulgur wheat and is gluten-free too. This is one of my favourite salads that I have with my evening meal, and it’s perfect to have as a left-over for lunch the next day. Always make extra. You’ll eat it for sure.

  • Cook the quinoa in the 800ml of water for 5 minutes on a rapid boil and then take it off the heat and add in a drizzle of oil and a pinch of salt – let it stand until it’s cooled (be very careful not to overcook the quinoa, tabouleh is better light and fluffy, not overcooked and soggy)
  • Add the quinoa to a mixing bowl and finely dice the onions and tomatoes and mix well, add the lemon juice and finely chopped the fresh herbs. 
  • Season with salt and pepper and serve.
