QUINOA AND POMEGRANATE TABBOULEH


QUINOA AND POMEGRANATE TABBOULEH


The tabbouleh (or tabulah) is an arabic dish typical from Lebanon, Syria, Morocco... and is differently prepared on each country. It is usually served as a side with other main dishes but can perfectly be used as a main dish.

The tabbouleh is normally made with bulgur wheat or couscous, commonly used in the Maghreb countries. 
Among the basic ingredients of the tabbouleh are: the tomatoes, olive oillemon juice and fresh herbs such as parsley and mint.

 Besides being a complete meal it is also very versatile and work very well with many combinations. In this occasion I've prepared this tabbouleh with a base of red quinoa and added a few seasonal and autumnal ingredients like the pomegranate and the pumpkin seeds

 *Little tips and tricks*

 To de-seed the pomegranate easily without making a mess: cut in half and place in your hand upside down with the seeds facing the palm of your hand. Hit it with the back of a tablespoon. The seeds will shoot out entirely!
