Vegan Quinoa Chickpea Tabbouleh Salad with Lemon Mint Dressing- fresh, healthy ,and bursting with flavor. Perfect for meal prep or your next picnic or BBQ!
Now that the weather is heating up, I'd much rather be outdoors than in the kitchen. My go-to meal options lately are smoothies and salads with all the fixings, one of my favorites being this Tabbouleh Salad. Tabbouleh Salad is usually made using bulger which is a type of cereal grain. I substituted quinoa for the bulger because it's more nutrient-dense.
This Tabbouleh Salad is hearty enough to serve as a main meal thanks to the protein-packed quinoa and chickpeas. This recipe makes a large portion so it's great for meal prep and leftovers. It can be served either warm or cold.
