This is my all-time favourite quinoa salad which is delicious and gluten-free. It’s also one of my favourite recipes and I make it at least once per week as a main meal. I originally made this recipe for my patients who often have gluten intolerance. I liked it so much that it became one of my staples. It also helps that it is so quick and easy to make.
This salad has quinoa which is rich in protein and minerals. It also has vegetables rich in vitamins and anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. And it’s super healthy and good for you!
I have always loved Tabbouleh, the Middle Eastern salad with parsley, mint, tomatoes, cucumber and bulgur. This is my version of it but I made it into a main meal on its own instead of a side dish. Tabbouleh usually has a small amount of bulgur in it whereas I use a fair amount of quinoa instead.
This salad is easy on the digestion and it’s also vegan if you skip the halloumi which is optional anyway. And I still have not met anyone who does not like it. If you fancy something delicious to drink after this salad I recommend my Chai Tea Recipe. Besides being tasty, it’ll also aid digestion and give you a glowing complexion.
I adore parsley and there is a large of amount of parsley in this salad which is a great way to eat parsley often. Parsley is a medicinal herb high in vitamins and minerals, especially iron. It’s diuretic and anti-inflammatory and can improve flatulence, stomach cramps and arthritis. Parsley is also a woman’s herb used for period pain and to stimulate bleeding.
