A twist on traditional tabbouleh - this recipe was posted on our local newspaper. I made a few modifications. Shrimp would be yummy too, or just serve it vegetarian.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Rinse and drain quinoa using mesh strainer. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the quinoa, broth, and 2 tablespoons lemon juice. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer, cover and cook 10-15 minutes, until all broth is absorbed. Let cool.
  2. Meanwhile, place diced tomatoes in a colander to drain excess moisture. Sprinkle with salt and let drain 10 minutes.
  3. Combine cooled quinoa, drained tomatoes, cucumber, scallions, garlic, remaining lemon juice and olive oil. Season with salt & pepper to taste. Chill at least 1 hour. Stir in chicken, parsley & mint just before serving.
