80--- Breakfast Tabbouleh

I knew that you needed another breakfast recipe.

With protein, grains, and goodness.

Here she be:

Breakfast Tabbouleh
Serves 3

1 cup cooked quinoa, chilled
1/2 apple, chopped
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup green seedless grapes, halved
5-6 dried figs, chopped
1/3 cup dried chopped walnuts
2 oz crumbled feta cheese
2 Tbsp honey
1 tsp butter
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

Combine apple and lemon juice and toss to coat.  Remove chopped apple and fold it into quinoa.  Add grapes, figs, walnuts, and feta.

In a small bowl, microwave butter, honey, and spices for ~30 seconds, until butter is melted.  Stir well, then fold into quinoa mixture.

Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate overnight prior to serving.

  1. This sounds yumm!

  2. Looks like a yum breakfast. Would go well with a cup of coffee on a relaxing Sunday morning.
