Quinoa Tabouli

April 27, 2015


Author Notes: This recipe was originally requested by my mom, who has celiac disease(gluten intolerance). I really dislike traditional tabouli so I tried to create something that we would both enjoy, and the result is amazing. Adding the roasted tomatoes along with all of the herbs, gives it a great depth of flavor. Enjoy!DailyMeals
