Quick Quinoa and Brown Rice Tabouli (no oil recipe)

Quick Quinoa and Brown Rice Tabouli (no oil recipe)


2 cups Whole Grain Medley Quinoa & Brown Rice with Garlic (Uncle Ben's brand, microwavable pouch)
1 cucumber(s), chopped
8 stalk Fresh GREEN ONIONS, sliced
2 medium raw Roma Tomato, chopped
3 tbsp Lemon Juice, Freshly Squeezed
4 tbsp Parsley, Raw, chopped
2 tbsp Fresh Mint, chopped


Prepare the microwavable quinoa and brown rice* according to package directions.
Dump into a large bowl and add the remaining ingredients.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Toss well and refrigerate several hours, stirring or tossing occasionally to distribute flavors.

*I used Uncle Bens and it has a garlic flavor added.
If you don't use that one, mince 2 cloves of garlic very fine (or press) and toss with the rest of the ingredients.

**To make a more "traditional" recipe, add 3-4T good olive oil when you toss everything.
