  • Cook Time 0:20

This quick, simple and satisfying recipe is a nutritious twist to an old favorite. Whereas traditional tabouli uses bulgur, this one substitutes with quinoa: A delicious, nutty and highly beneficial ancient grain. Indigenous to South America, quinoa was a staple for the Incas and was referred to as “the mother grain.” Quinoa has the highest protein content of any grain and is rich with calcium, iron and B vitamins, making it an especially important food for vegetarians. Quinoa has a complex, slightly nutty flavor and can be used as a healthier alternative to rice and other common grains. This dish can be served hot or cold.
