High-Protein Vegan Quinoa Hemp Tabbouleh 

It’s not often that parsley is the star of a dish, but this refreshing salad is a delicious exception.

Serves: 4

Tabbouleh is an herby salad typically served cold, and this recipe from the High-Protein Plant-Based Diet for Beginners cookbook uses quinoa as a high-protein, gluten-free twist on the traditional dish, typically made with bulgur wheat.

What you need:

2 cups fresh curly parsley, washed and chopped
1½ cups cooked quinoa
6 tablespoons hemp hearts 
1 medium tomato, diced
3 scallions, white and green parts, roughly chopped
2 tablespoons fresh mint, roughly chopped
¼ cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper

What you do:

  1. In a large bowl combine all ingredients. Mix well to coat and combine.
  2. Place in refrigerator to marinate for 20 to 30 minutes before serving.
