Quinoa Tabbouleh Tips
How long does quinoa tabbouleh last in the fridge?
While this quinoa tabbouleh will last up to one week in the fridge, the vegetables won't stay at their best for that long. They'll be optimal and crisp for 2 to 3 days.
Is quinoa or bulgur healthier?
The texture of quinoa and bulgur are similar, but quinoa is a seed and bulgur is a wheat grain, so for someone with wheat allergies or sensitivities, quinoa is a good option. Both quinoa and bulgur are loaded with vitamins, protein and fiber. Quinoa is the winner, by 2 grams, for protein and bulgur, by 3 grams, in fiber. Whichever your preference, it’s a healthy choice.
