Quinoa Tabouli

I feel that this simple recipe ticks a lot of boxes that I feel matter.

Easy. Tasty. Versatile. Convenient.

You could simply make the base and use it with any any protein you choose (eggs, fish, meat, cheese, beans) or make it the hero of your meal. You could for instance use it for dinner with one protein option and switch that up for the leftovers at lunch. Explore what suits you best. That is after all the core of a healthy and supportive relationship to food.

This recipe makes one serving +/- as needed and is very much not the only amount to eat. You'll find out what you need by exploring it.
