Quinoa Taboula

Easy, quick, and super nutritious! Re-invent the classic taboula with today’s super seed: quinoa!


  • 1/2 cup quinoa - كينوا
  • 1 cup water - ماء
  • 1 bunch parsley - بقدونس
  • 3 cucumber - خيار
  • 2 tomato - طماطم
  • 1 small red onion (or 2 spring onions) - بصلة حمراء
  • 1 handful mint - نعناع
  • 4 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil - زيت الزيتون بكر
  • 3 lime - ليمون بلدي
  • 1 teaspoon dried mint - نعناع مجفف/ ناشف
  • 1 garlic clove (crushed) - فص ثوم
  • salt and pepper - ملح و فلفل

Step by step

  1. Wash the quinoa, then bring to the boil uncovered with one cup of water. When it boils, lower the heat to a minimum, cover and leave to simmer for 10-15 minutes. It is done when the water is absorbed and the quinoa is tender. Leave to cool then fluff it with a fork.
  2. To prepare the salad, finely chop your greens, then slice the onions, tomatoes and cucumber into tiny cubes. Set aside.
  3. In a salad bowl, mix the dressing ingredients: olive oil, lime juice, salt, pepper, dried mint, and crushed garlic clove.
  4. Stir in the finely chopped vegetables and give it a quick stir, then add the cooled quinoa. Use a fork to fluff the quinoa with the salad. Garnish with fresh mint and serve.
