Organic Quinoa Tabouleh

Author: Green Cyprus  //  Category: Recipes

Here’s a simple salad recipe which is quick to make:

200 g organic quinoa
2 large, ripe organic tomatoes
large bunch fresh organic parsley, leaves only, finely chopped
small bunch fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
1 small organic onion, finely chopped
2-3 tbsp lemon juice
2-3 tbsp organic extra virgin olive oil
sea salt, flakes 

1. Cook the quinoa according to packet instructions. Cook it like rice i.e. one part quinoa to 2 parts water. Takes about 15 minutes.
2. Make a small cross at the base of each tomato. Place the tomatoes in a heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Set aside for 30 seconds, then drain. When the tomatoes are cool enough to handle, peel off and discard the skins.
3. Dice the tomatoes and place in a serving bowl. Stir in the parsley, mint and chopped onion until well combined. Mix in the quinoa, then drizzle over the lemon juice and olive oil and season to taste with sea salt. Mix well to coat the ingredients in the dressing.

Optional: Green Cyprus suggests adding half a teaspoon each of organic paprika and turmeric for an extra kick and health benefits.
