Quinoa, celery heart and pea tabouli


You'll need

6 ripe tomatoes, scored 100 gm mixed quinoa (see note) 175 gm (1 cup) drained canned chickpeas (see note) 1 celery heart, finely chopped 120 gm (1 cup) frozen peas, defrosted ½ Spanish onion, finely chopped 1 small bunch spring onions, thinly sliced 1 cup (firmly packed) flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped 1 cup (firmly packed) mint, thinly sliced 2 lemons, juice only 1 lemon, rind only, removed with a peeler, very thinly sliced 1 tbsp olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • Cook quinoa in a saucepan of lightly salted boiling water until just tender (5-6 minutes). Drain, rinse under cold running water and drain well.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, blanch tomatoes in boiling water until skins burst (30 seconds-1 minute), then refresh, drain, peel, coarsely chop, transfer to a large bowl. Add quinoa and remaining ingredients, season to taste and serve.
Note Mixed quinoa is available from select delicatessens. If unavailable, substitute plain, black or red quinoa. If you have time, soak and cook your own dried chickpeas for better texture.

This recipe is from the February 2010 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.
