Steps to make Gluten Free Millet Tabbouleh Salad


Prepare millet mixture


In a large saucepan, combine ½ cup of millet and 1 cup water and bring to a boil then reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for about 15 minutes until most of the water is absorbed. Remove from heat and set aside for about 2-3 minutes to absorb the remaining water.


Combine dressing


In a small mixing bowl, use a fork to whisk 3 tablespoons of lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of olive oil and ¼ teaspoon of garlic powder until well combined. Season with salt and pepper to your taste preference.


Combine salad


In a large bowl, toss the cooked millet with 1½ cups of finely chopped parsley leaves, ½ cup of finely chopped mint leaves, 1 chopped tomato, ¼ cup of finely chopped red onion and ½ chopped cucumber, if using and combine everything together.


Add dressing


Pour the prepared dressing over the salad and toss to coat and combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate for about 15-20 minutes to chill and marinate.



Serve chilled and enjoy!

I made this but since I'm not vegan I did add some chicken pieces to it, was very good.

The millet tabbouleh was kinda plain and needed a lot more spices in my opinion but its edible and good if you like bland foods.

I didn't add the fresh mint because I hate minty things but the food was quite tasty, i made it with some cheesy garlic bread too.

Had this for lunch with my husband and we both very much enjoyed it.
