This grain free tabbouleh salad recipe is a simple meal to make without the wheat. I’m all about making recipes gluten or grain free when I can. Gluten free cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right. By building meals around gluten free pantry staples and swapping in a few wheat-less ingredients you can make healthier meals for you and your family. I made a list of my 125 favorite gluten free pantry ingredients that we use on a weekly basis, and check out all my gluten free recipes here that are on The Herbeevore.

How Do I Make Tabbouleh with Garbanzo Beans?

For the Salad

  1. Wash the parsley and mint, and pat dry.  Finely chop (or use a food processor!) each bunch of parsley, use both the leaves and stems.  Repeat with the mint, and add the greens to a large mixing bowl. Add drained chickpeas.
  2. Finely dice the tomatoes (usually 3 large, or 1 pint of cherry).  I prefer to use cherry/grape tomatoes because they are a bit sweeter during the winter, but large roma or beefsteak tomatoes will work just fine anytime, especially in season!
  3. Slice green onion and add to the bowl along with the greens and tomatoes.

For the Dressing

  1. In a pint or quart sized mason jar: juice 2 large lemons, removing seeds.  Add equal part olive oil to the lemon juice.  Then using the garlic press (my preferred method!) press 2 large cloves of garlic into the dressing.  Add a lil salt, add a lil pepper, and shake the jar to combine.
  2. If you want to spice it up, add a few red pepper flakes to the dressing too!
