Quinoa or Amaranth Tabouli Recipe



Ingredients:
1 C amaranth
1 C parsley, chopped
1/2 C scallions, chopped
2 Tbl fresh mint
1/2 C lemon juice
1/4 C olive oil
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1/4 C olives, sliced
Lettuce leaves, whole

Instructions:
1. Simmer quinoa or amaranth in an equal volume of water for 12-15 minutes. Allow to cool.
2. Place all ingredients except lettuce and olives in a mixing bowl and toss together lightly. Chill for an hour or more to allow flavours to blend.
3. Wash and dry lettuce leaves and use them to line a salad bowl. Add tabouli and garnish with olives.

Cooking Instructions

1. Amaranth can be boiled (15-20 minutes), baked, or popped.
2. Organic amaranth should be stored in a tightly sealed container (preferably a glass jar) in a cool, dark, dry location. If stored properly, organic amaranth can have a shelf life of up to one year.

Factoid

Because amaranth is gluten- and wheat-free, it can be used as a grain alternative for people with gluten and wheat sensitivities. It also has one of the highest fibre contents for a grain and has more protein than wheat. It is also rich in the amino acid lysine, which is needed for calcium absorption and collagen production.
