Sprouted Quinoa Tabbouleh
We're putting a delicious, naturally gluten-free spin on this classic Mediterranean recipe.
Our Sprouted Quinoa Tabbouleh is a simple-to-make crowd-pleaser, and the perfect addition to any late-summer meal. The sprouted quinoa adds a delicious, nutty flavor that plays perfectly against the freshness of the veggies and brightness of the lemon juice.
Not to mention, quinoa is a "super grain" that contains all the necessary amino acids needed to classify it as a complete protein. Bon appetit!
