Grain-Free Chickpea Tabouli

Grain-Free Chickpea Tabouli

recipe by: Laura Mierzwa, Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Culinary Nutrition Expert 

 

This simple Grain-Free Chickpea Tabouli can be served over greens, or to make a quick protein-packed snack! Parsley is high in antioxidants such as vitamins A, C, E and Selenium and is excellent for stimulating the digestive system.

I made this dish grain-free as grains are difficult to digest, especially for people experiencing issues with their gastro-intestinal system. Reducing the amount of grains in our diets can be beneficial for many people, and temporarily eliminating them altogether helps those of us who want to heal our gut.

 

Ingredients

2 cups cooked chickpeas

½ white onion

2 cups chopped parsley

¼ cup chopped mint leaves

2 ripe tomatoes, chopped

½ large cucumber, chopped

¼ cup sunflower seeds

2 tbsp olive oil

1 lemon, juiced

Sprinkle of Himalayan Salt

 

Directions

In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients. Store in the fridge up to 4 days.

 

Enjoy!
