Sprouted Quinoa Tabbouleh
This is the perfect summer salad. It’s so light and refreshing…and quite addicting. I love all of the fresh herbs in it…especially the mint. Mint makes me happy. Add it to your smoothies and it will make YOU happy too. 🙂 This was great on a bed of sprouts…but you could also use it in a wrap or on crackers.

Sprouted Quinoa Tabbouleh
2-3 cups sprouted quinoa* (you could also use cooked quinoa)
2 green onions, including tops
3/4 cup grape tomatoes, sliced
1/2 cup artichoke hearts, chopped (optional)
1 cucumber, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 handful of each: mint, basil, and parsley (minced)

Dressing (adjust to taste):
1 lemon, juiced (approximately 2 T)
1-2 T olive oil
1 T agave
1 t sea salt

*To sprout your quinoa, soak it overnight and then rinse. Let it sit for 1-2 days until you see the little “tails” sprouting out of the seed. I put mine in a mason jar with a mesh lid and invert it into a bowl for good drainage.

    Sounds good. Another great variety, if you don’t have time to sprout the quinoa (which I know practicially sprouts itself!) is to up the veggies and add about 1/4-1/3 cup of hemp seeds or sesame seeds in place of the sprouted quinoa. Very yum. Oh, with this suggestion, I would say the agave would not be needed, just evoo and lemon juice.

    “Mint makes me happy”

    Such true words are rarely spoken. Lovely.

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
