Quinoa Tabbouleh
Quinoa Tabbouleh | Recipe by Adriana Gracie

You will love this dish because all the ingredients are consumed raw, thus preserving all their nutritional properties. It’s a vegetarian dish suitable for everyone. Still, it is rich in protein which is good for muscle gain if you often work out, or if you are a BJJ practitioner wanting to build strength or even a high level athlete.


2 cups (480 ml) of water

1-cup (175 g) quinoa

4 tablespoons (soup) of oil

1/2-teaspoon (tsps.) sea salt

3 tomatoes, diced

1 cucumber, cut into cubes

2 spring onions, chopped

2 carrots, grated

1 cup (60 g) chopped fresh parsley


In a saucepan, bring water to the boil. Once it’s boiling, add the quinoa with a pinch of sea salt. Lower the heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Set aside to cool down at room temperature. Stir the quinoa with a fork.

Meanwhile, in a bowl mix the olive oil, salt, tomatoes, cucumber, spring onion, carrot and parsley. Add the quinoa.

Enjoy it and good training!
