{Recipes} Gluten-Free Quinoa Tabouli with a Texas Twist

Gluten-Free Quinoa Tabouli

In a recent outing to Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels, Texas, a friend brought along homemade quinoa tabouli. Having had to give up tabouli because of celiac disease, I was thrilled and ate almost the whole container. Naturally, I asked for the recipe, and she said she found it online. Off I went to Chef Google that very same night, where I came up with this recipe (they say “tabbouleh” and I say “tabouli”)  from Bon Appétit.

Being my mother’s daughter and all, I tinkered with the recipe.

Here’s my version:

Ingredients:

2 cups quinoa (rinsed, prepared according to package instructions, and cooled)
3 cups diced cucumber
1 pint cherry tomatoes, split
1 small red onion, diced
2/3 cup flat-leaf parsley
1/4 cup mint
3 tbsp. Sass Sesame Garlic salad dressing (You can experiment with your own oil-based vinaigrette, but I love this Texas brand!)
Dash of kosher salt
Lemon juice to taste

Method:

Mix cucumbers, tomato, onion, parsley, mint, salad dressing salt, and lemon juice. Add cooled quinoa. Chill thoroughly before serving.

  1. New Planet for GF beer. I won’t buy anything else, it’s all horrible. But New Planet is fantastic, and I love their amber. Rumor has it a porter is coming this winter and THAT will make me over the moon ecstatic.
