Quinoa is one of my favorite foods because it’s so healthy for you and it’s even better with veggies and chickpeas!
tabouli is a kind of dish with quinoa, veggies, and chickpeas. You can always add in or leave out whatever you want.
Quinoa. Any quinoa will work but I like tricolored quinoa.
Mint. The mint is optional but highly recommended.
Cucumber. Organic cucumber is best but if you have to use inorganic I recommend peeling it first.
Black olives. Black olives taste amazing in this tabouli but they are also optional.
Chickpeas. Add the chickpeas as desired (aka garbanzo beans).
