RED QUINOA tabouleh


Hi, Semra here…Aylins mom. When it comes to nutrition all quinoa tastes the same and similar in nutritional value. Rich in protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals. I recommend rinsing before cooking to remove the bitter taste. This doesn’t affect the consistency and the texture. 

I hope you enjoy.

Xx, Semra
