Quinoa Tabbouleh

Ingredients: ½ cup dry quinoa (1 ½ cups cooked) 1  cup water ¼ cup chopped mint ¼ cup chopped cilantro 1 cup chopped cucumber

Ingredients: 1 cup chopped grape, cherry or plum tomatoes 2 teaspoons finely chopped jalapeño ¼ cup lemon juice 2 tablespoons olive oil Salt

Rinse and drain quinoa. This step is very important. Quinoa has a natural bitter coating of saponins. You will notice the suds quinoa creates when rinsing.

Place water and quinoa in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until all the water is absorbed, about 10-15 minutes. Add salt.

Put chopped mint, cilantro, cucumber, tomatoes, and jalapeño in a bowl. Add lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and quinoa. Mix well. Let flavors combine for at least an hour before serving.
