Quinoa Tabouleh Salad

If you have been following this blog a while, you have probably heard me mention that my mother in law is from Turkey.  I have several of her recipes on my blog including my super easy bean salad and my red lentil soup.  Tabouleh salad is another thing she makes often.  Tradtionally, tabouleh salad recipes are made with bulgur.  Bulgur is not gluten free though.  I wanted to keep my tabouleh salad gluten free, so I used quinoa instead.

  1. I'm anxious to try this but I have a question. I've never used pomegranate molasses - is there a substitute? Could I use olive oil instead? Thanks!
  2. I've had tabbouleh before and not been real impressed with the flavor, but the addition of the pomegranate molasses sounds like it would make this dish. I'll definitely have to try it. It doesn't hurt at all that my prior experience of Turkish cooking has been very positive… :-)
    1. I'm sorry I don't know. The serving size would be 1/2 cup to 1 cup. You can probably plug the recipe into My Fitness Pal for a rough estimate
