Traditionally, Tabbouleh is made with couscous (a cracked wheat). It is a Levantine vegetarian salad made of mostly finely chopped parsley with tomatoes, mint, onion, bulgur, and seasoned with olive oil and lemon juice. In this variation, we’ll be substituting couscous with quinoa which is a great alternative.
Chickpeas, sometimes known as garbanzo beans, are a good source of protein, carbohydrates, and fiber. They are a great addition to soups, throwing it in a bean salad, mashing them to make some falafel — or like the title of this post, make hummus!
