Hi Beautiful Souls!
Today I am sharing a recipe for my version of High Protein Gluten Free Tabouli Salad (Tabbouleh) (low carb Tabouli Salad) and it is naturally vegan/vegetarian friendly! This recipe can be doubled to make a larger batch to share with friends and family.
I’ve been wanting to try Tabouli Salad for a while however I normally use alternative flours in my cooking and the normal Tabouli Salad recipe calls for couscous which is wheat based. So, I created a wheat free, gluten free version using quinoa instead!
I feel this alternative makes the recipe better on your digestion and a healthier choice overall. Gluten has been found to be linked with inflammation and an unhealthy gut biome and leaky gut.
I hope you enjoy this alternative version!

Of course you can buy a version of Tabouli Salad (Tabbouleh) at your local market like trader Joe’s near the fresh produce section along with hummus and other items.
But, I always prefer to make homemade when possible as I can avoid additional chemicals and ingredients that are just not required. And, the energy you put into your creation is high vibes and better for your body, mind and spirit! Respect your body…
You will need the following ingredients list for this low carb Tabouli Salad (Tabbouleh) and the dressing:
1 cup quinoa (cooked)
½ cucumber (finely chopped)
2 green onions (bulb and stock finely chopped)
6-7 fresh mint leaves (finely chopped)
1 bunch curly parsley (Italian or regular parsley is fine also) approximately ¼ cup
2 tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice strained through mesh sieve
4tbsp sunflower oil (I prefer sunflower over olive oil since it is milder and slightly sweet)
Pinch of salt and pepper to taste
Mix all fresh ingredients together in a medium size bowl.
You can use a small mason jar to mix dressing ingredients together before gently pouring over the salad mix. Toss or mix with large spoon until dry ingredients are fully covered with dressing.
Let stand in fridge for about an hour before serving to let the spices and other ingredients work their magic together! Enjoy as a side, alone or wrapped in lettuce or with pita chips or pita bread. I added a garnish of Trader Joe’s dolmades because they just taste great with this salad!
SERVINGS: This recipe makes approximately 3 cups.
