Quinoa (pronounced KEEN-wah) has risen to superstar fame in recent years. It’s a gluten-free, high-protein, high-fiber, quick-cooking whole grain with a nutty flavor and a fun pop between the teeth when cooked. You’ll find white, red, black, or tricolor quinoa in stores; they all taste almost the same, so use whichever color you prefer.

A good gluten-free source of protein, iron, and fiber, quinoa is a quick and flavorful way to get in a serving of whole grains. About the size of pellets of couscous, quinoa cooks in about 20 minutes. The only special handling required with quinoa is to give it a good rinse before cooking; otherwise, the grains can be bitter.

Traditional tabbouleh is made with bulgur, or cracked wheat. This quinoa riff is a great gluten-free option that still maintains the flavors of the original reference point. There’s still the chopped tomato and cucumber, the fresh zip of lemon juice, and the abundant fresh herbs. This salad holds up well, so it’s a good option for a picnic or potluck side. To turn it into a main dish, stir in shredded rotisserie or leftover chicken—or to keep with more classic Middle Eastern flavors, add or serve with grilled lamb.
