the object of my desire

When first I heard the phrase, I knew it had to be mine.

"Quinoa tabouli."

I just finished making a homemade batch and eating a big bowl of it. Delicious!

I started with:

1 small cucumber
1 box ripe grape tomatoes
1/2 red pepper
1/2 fresh onion
1 c dry quinoa
1 c chopped fresh parsley
5 cloves pickled garlic

I cooked the quinoa with water, olive oil and salt. In the meantime, I peeled the cucumber and chopped all the veggies and mixed them together with 1/4 c of olive oil, a splash of lime juice, and some sea salt to taste. Then I added quinoa until the proportions looked right - I didn't use all that I had cooked, but that could be because I didn't chop the tomatos very finely. I did not chill the quinoa first. Best served room-temperature and very fresh, in my pleased opinion.
