A few weeks ago we all went to a Pot Luck dinner and I was to bring something vegan for my husband that everyone could eat. I wanted to make sure that he got some protein, good grains and of course some veggies. So when I found this recipe at Once Upon a Chef, I figured it was a win-win.
I love salads in the summer time for some reason more than in the winter. Maybe I just feel there is more variety in local veggies and fruits which to me, makes the salad. In searching for something vegan on Pinterest that would appeal to everyone, I thought this would be it. I had a bulgur/quinoa mix to use up and picked up the remaining veggies we needed. Well, my husband did 🙂
- 1 can of chic peas (drained, washed)
- 1/2 Red Onion
- Red Pepper
- 1/2 Cup fresh Dill
- 1/3 Cup fresh Parsley
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1-2 lemons (juiced)
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1-2 cups Quinoa (I put in a mix of Quinoa and Bulgar @ 2 cups and it made a tone of it).
It goes with everything! We had a BBQ pot luck and then I ate it with salmon and asparagus the next day. I changed the recipe a little and had 2 cups of quinoa/bulgur mix which in the end was a lot but good for a pot luck. If I was only making it for us as a family, I would have stayed with the 1 cup.
Again, the original recipe can be found at Once Upon A Chef.
