I have been fan of quinoa dishes for as long as I can remember, especially tabbouleh! I love how fresh quinoa tabbouleh tastes with the addition of vine tomatoes and crunchy cucumber. This can be eaten as a main with the addition of a protein source (such a tofu, salmon or chicken) but also makes the perfect side dish alongside other dishes, including my tahini coleslaw and courgette tamari salad!
