Excellent easy recipe especially when I have most of the ingredients already at home.

I love quinoa and basil so the easy combination worked well for me, it's also easy to add broccoli or cauliflower if you want to make it go further and up the vegetables.

Loved the nutty. Minty flavour and very refreshing taste. have never thought of adding quinoa to my taboulleh before but this is a winner for my luncheds from now on.
Thanks for the basil pesto voucher we often have this brand in the house. Love it
