This quinoa tabbouleh recipe is for those of you who want a high protein healthy meal with delicious flavors! It’s ready in no time and it’s so much better than bulgur wheat tabbouleh! 

I am a HUGE parsley fan, so this recipe is just perfect for me. I always add lots and lots of parsley in any savory meal and I love to eat it just by itself as well.

Since going gluten-free I couldn’t enjoy one of my favorite salads – tabbouleh – anymore because it is usually made with bulgur wheat. That until I got the idea to use quinoa instead!

What a brilliant idea I must say! I discovered that quinoa is so much better than bulgur wheat in tabbouleh! Not only it is 100 times healthier, but it also tastes better!


So, I made my own version of tabbouleh – quinoa tabbouleh! All the other ingredients are pretty much the same. I tweaked the quantities a little bit and added a generous drizzle of tahini on top which made it heavenly!

As usual, Ottolenghi was my inspiration for this Middle Eastern recipe. I also looked into how you can make the perfect tabbouleh and I believe I made an even better version of it!

So, here it is! Enjoy! 🙂
