Quinoa Tabbouleh Recipe is a twist on traditional Mediterranean Tabbouleh that is made with bulgur wheat and tomatoes. The main ingredient in this recipe is parsley which has a very crisp, refreshing and cleansing taste to it.



2 cups of cooked quinoa (cooled)

2 green onions

1/2 red pepper

4 cups fresh flat parsley

23 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1/2 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Follow directions on package to cook quinoa. It usually takes about 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, thinly slice the green onions. Clean, seed and small dice the red pepper.
  3. Chop finely the parsley – I recommend using a food processor. Pulse it a few times and you are set!
  4. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Add more salt if desired.


I love to eat this on top of crackers – Mary’s Gone Crackers (Seaweed & Black Sesame) are my favorite!
