THE RECIPE

Mint-Infused Quinoa Tabbouleh

Summertime tabbouleh without the wheat

Whether they’re bright yellow, rich reds, or shades of green, summertime makes the most out of fresh ingredients. And with no exception, David’s mint Infused quinoa tabouleh is at the height of freshness. Pure mint leaves are brewed into an herbal liquid and then used as a base for both the quinoa and peas to cook. Then, an apple cider and lemon sauce is whisked to bring all these flavors together in one flavorful and unique dish. Throw it together and chill for a picnic the next day or whip it up in the morning and serve at dinner. Either way this wonderful and delicious tabouleh is sure to stand out with its many shades of green and deliciousness.
