Raw Vegan Tabbouleh Recipe

Hi my beauties! Hope you are all well :) Today I have a new video for you on one of my favorite raw vegan dishes, tabbouleh, which I like to have once or twice a week. I just love parsley - it's so good for you and this is a great fresh way to incorporate it into your diet. Traditional recipes use bulgur wheat - but I opt for quinoa for it's high vitamin and mineral content. As mentioned in the video however, I have also made this using just pine nuts instead of any wheat - which tastes super good! It's all about tailoring this to your preference - as with most recipes :) I hope you enjoy and find it interesting! XOXO




Recipe:
- 1 medium sized cucumber
- 2 tomatos 
- 3/4 red onion  
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 cup lemon juice
- 1/2 cup quinoa (soaked & sprouted to remain raw)
- 2 bunches parsley
- 1/2 cup mint leaves

Optional: pine nuts & romain lettuce leaves to serve 

Top left: two bunches parsley (one curly leaf & one flat leaf)
Top right: diced cucumber, onion, garlic and tomato 
Bottom left: lemon juice, quinoa and mint
Bottom right: romain lettuce leaves

I love having my tabbouleh in these romain lettuce "tacos". They are so fresh & sweet!

I love the vibrant color! This stays good for about three days (and get's better the longer you let it sit)

  9. Wonderful recipe ! Have you thought about putting hemp hearts in the tabouleh instead of the pine nuts ? I think it would taste great as well. Take care xoxox
