Quinoa Tabbouleh

Quinoa Tabbouleh(Adapted from CL)

1 3/4 cups water
1 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup chopped cucumber
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons chopped green onions
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons minced fresh onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

In a medium saucepan, combine water and quinoa. Bring to a boil and then cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork. Stir in parsley and remaining ingredients. Cover and let stand at least 1 hour for the flavors to absorb.

  1. I have been meaning to try quinoa - a fresh bag awaits in my pantry - and this recipe may be the one to nudge me into action. My kind of flavors. Thanks!
