We have news! Proudly presenting our unique and delicious cookbook series, “Cooking by the Seat of my Pants!” from Our Sunday Cafe, available right here!

For this week's Sunday Dinner, I would like to suggest the following...

Quinoa Tabbouleh, fresh and bright, made with Quinoa grain

In our community. there is a small chain of cafes that serve delicious Mediterranean food, called 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 from Jerusalem Cafe 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.
