Quinoa a Delicious 15 Point Scrabble Word by quornflour

Loads of folks these days are trying to find ways to cut out gluten from their diets, seems like it should be easy, I don’t love pizza or sandwiches, but a nice piece of bread with a bowl of soup just does it right. It is not that easy though, seems like it is in everything.

If anyone has some awesome gluten free recipes they would like to share I would sure appreciate it.

Anyway, tabbouleh (alt. tabouli) is one of those nice fresh tasting salads that given its primary ingredient, bulgur wheat is so not gluten free, but that does not mean you should have to avoid this delicious dish.

Here is what you will need:

  • the juice of 1 small lemon
  • 3 Roma tomatoes (finely chopped)
  • 1 cucumber (finely chopped)
  • 1 cup fresh parsley or mint (chopped)
  • ¼ red onion (finely chopped)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1 cup red quinoa
  • 2 cups of water

 

In a medium saucepan add 1 cup quinoa and 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil then let simmer until all of the water is absorbed. When cooked put in a bowl in the fridge or freezer for a bit to cool.

When the quinoa is cooled add the rest of the ingredients and stir and serve.

I keep trying to like quinoa, but it just isn’t happening. Maybe it just doesn’t like me.

are you useing red or white? the white stuff is gross IMO.

Comment by quornflour

I had no idea that there were options beyond yuck and ick. The kind I have had (too amny time) is tan-ish. Is this the “white” variety?

Comment by Leah

yeah the tan stuff is gross, it takes any flavors you add to it and just sucks them dry and leaves you with nothing, and the texture is not good.
Check out the red kind (also called Inka Red), it tastes better and adopts flavors and better.
