I got this recipe from a package of Bob's Red Mill brand quinoa. It's perfect because my husband and I love Middle Eastern food, but he's allergic to gluten and can't have traditional tabouleh. The fresher the herbs, the better because they are really the cornerstone of this recipe. Feel free to add tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, toasted pine nuts, anything you desire. It would make a great meal with a side of veggie kabobs and vegan tzatziki. Cooking time includes cooking the quinoa and refrigerating the salad. Preparation time includes chopping.
