Look forward to your next meal by including some of this quick-to-make Garden Fresh Tabbouleh Salad! My family and I could eat this salad every day!
You’ve probably had tabbouleh at some point in your life. This simple but tasty salad is often prepared with bulgur, couscous, quinoa or some other type of grain or pseudo-grain.
This version is completely free of grains and is also gluten-free! So go ahead and enjoy some as a side, in a wrap or mixed with some of your other favourite dishes.
Keep things interesting
This week I wanted to share something easy, fresh, delicious and it had to be veggie-packed as I know it can be a struggle to find new ways to enjoy garden produce.
Changing your recipes up once in a while can help keep things interesting at meal time. Even my husband has been reaching for my many batches of this beautiful and super fresh salad. We love it on its own, in lettuce wraps or lately in some amazing gluten-free cassava wraps. OMG! They are so good!
If your family loves taco night as much as my family does this Garden Fresh Tabbouleh Salad will add an extra yummy factor to your tacos or taco bowls.
Mixing some of this Garden Fresh Tabbouleh Salad by hand (or in the blender) with some creamy ripe avocado would probably be so good too! My mind is spinning with other ideas right now! That would make such a flavourful dip! As you can tell, I really like this salad—or dip, in my dreaming mind!
Gluten-Free Grain-Free Cassava Wraps
You know the wraps in the picture—they are out of this world! If you are grain-free, gluten-free and can’t eat or don’t like corn or rice tortillas you must try using cassava flour. Eventually, I’ll add cassava recipes to my site, but in the meantime, please join my GFV Baking Facebook Group. The gluten-free grain-free cassava wraps recipe is there for my group to try!
This group was created to help bakers troubleshoot the very different and challenging world of gluten-free, vegan and allergen-friendly baking! It’s where I share some of the recipes I’m developing first.
Members are free to ask questions about my recipes or other recipes they would like to tweak.
