Mixed Grain Tabbouleh

Recipe from

Coastal Living


1 cup quinoa
1 cup pearl barley
1 cup wheat berries, faro, or spelt
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
1 1/2 cups chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
1 large English cucumber, peeled and diced
6 green onions, thinly sliced
3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Cook each grain separately in 2 cups water and 1 teaspoon salt. Cover and bring to a boil. Turn heat to low; simmer quinoa 20 minutes, barley 35 minutes, and wheat berries 55 minutes, or until water is absorbed and grains are tender. Let sit, covered, 15 minutes. Combine grains in a bowl, and let cool. (Grains may be cooked up to 3 days in advance and refrigerated.) Stir in lemon juice and remaining ingredients.
