Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

There is a small chain of family run cafes that serve delicious Mediterranean food, The Jerusalem Cafe.  I have enjoyed eating there for many years. I have always loved the Tabbouleh, it is so good. The thing I really enjoy  about the food is that it is real home cooking. When I first starting eating there about 15 years ago, Mom and Dad cooked, in the first little spot in downtown Vancouver. Now the different cafes are run by family members, and I am thinking that even with Mom and Dad retired it is the same food and just like home.

The tabbouleh is big on vegetables with lots of parsley and lemon. Also it is made with whole wheat couscous, instead of Bulgar. But today I will (try to) translate my love of their tabbouleh into this recipe for Quinoa Tabbouleh.
