Have you ever eaten Quinoa? It's a yummy whole grain and I made it for the first time with the recipe on the back of the package. It came out so good:

Quinoa Taboule

2 cups of cooked and cooled Quinoa
1 up chopped parsley
1/2 cup chopped scallions
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh mint (I recommend more)
1 garlic clove minced
1 Tbsp. minced fresh basil (I would do more)
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (I would put a little less or add a tbsp of sugar)
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground white pepper

Toss all ingredients together. Chill for 1 hour to allow flavors to blend. Makes 6 servings.

I added a 1/2 cup of fresh diced tomatoes.
Happy cooking!!!
