Vegan Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad

Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad

I have been making my own quinoa tabbouleh salad before I even knew what a tabbouleh salad was. A traditional tabbouleh salad uses Bulgur along with parsley, mint, lemon & onion. Luckily in the world of food blogging, you can change traditional into modern and trendy. In my quinoa tabbouleh salad, the Bulgur has been replaced with quinoa and the mint has been omitted.

QUINOA Tabbouleh Salad

Whether its rice, lentils, beans or quinoa I will always use a vegetable broth over water to cook my grain, or in this case, my seed. Did you know that quinoa is actually a seed? Quinoa is grown as a grain crop and harvested for its seeds. I cook my quinoa just as though I would if it was rice; 1 cup of uncooked quinoa for 2 cups of vegetable broth.

Putting this salad together is so simple. All of the ingredients go into a bowl and you stir it up. That’s it. The possibilities to serve are endless. The addition of hummus, tzatziki, and crispy chickpeas take me away to the warm waters of the Mediterranian.

Try using this salad as a base for an oil free hummus dip, or all on its own as a side salad to accompany a falafel.
