Quinoa Tabouli

~1/2 cup quinoa, cooked in 1 cup water for 15 minutes
~1 large tomato, diced
~1 medium onion, diced
~1-2 handfuls of parsley diced
~juice of 1 lemon
Cook quinoa and allow time to cool. Mix in chopped ingredients, pour lemon juice on top and lightly mix. Adjust ingredients to your preference. Enjoy! For a 100% raw dish, you could sprout the quinoa instead of cooking it. I've yet to enter the world of sprouting, so I'll stick with cooked quinoa for now.

This is a simple, quick, and healthy snack or meal. As a snack, I serve with corn chips or cucumbers or as a meal I heap this onto romaine lettuce wraps or in a flatbread. Traditionally this is made with bulgar wheat , but I like the added protein from the quinoa.
