Quinoa Tabouli

Me again! I haven’t felt motivated enough lately to cook. I’ve been busy and lazy, and just plain useless. But sunday afternoon is the time to make some healthy food to take to work and quinoa is always my go to staple.

I like Tabouli because it is so light and fresh. You don’t feel like someone has poured concrete into your stomach when you eat a dish like this. It is healthy, filling and delicious.

Recipe
1/2 cup Quinoa
1 cup Water or Stock
Half a Cucumber
8 to 10 Cherry Tomatoes
2 tbsp finely chopped Mint
2 tbsp chopped Parsley
2 tbsp Lemon Juice
1 tbsp Olive Oil

Cook the quinoa in the water or stock until tender. I used water with 2 bruised garlic cloves and some salt and pepper, discarding the garlic once cooked. Leave this to cool.

Chop the tomatoes in half and the cucumber into chunks. Mix into the cooled quinoa with everything else and serve.

(oh and I sprinkled mine with flaked almonds)
