Quinoa Tabouli Salad
One of the great salads available in the Grab ‘n Go cooler is Quinoa Tabouli Salad. Made with quinoa, tomato, cucumber, parsley, green onions, bell pepper, celery, peppermint, lemon juice, olive oil, and salt, this is a great salad anytime of the year.
The Grab ‘n Go deli crew replaced the bulgur in traditional tabouli with quinoa. Quinoa (Keen-wah) is nutritionally renowned for its protein content and while it does have a decent amount, it’s not actually the amount of protein that’s so impressive. Instead it’s the type of protein. Quinoa has the perfect balance of all nine amino acids essential for human nutrition. This type of complete protein is rarely found in plant foods, though common in meats. Quinoa also offers a good dose of fiber and iron. There are 111 calories in each 1/2 cup of cooked quinoa.
Technically, quinoa is a seed, not a grain
and it’s grown high in the Andes
Mountains of South America. Quinoa
plants have been cultivated at altitudes
of well over 10,000 feet and have been
considered a superfood for at least a few
millennia — in fact, the Incas cherished
it as a superfood of their own.
Try this great salad the next time you are in the Co-op and see why everyone “in the know” about nutrition, loves quinoa.
