This is a vegan, gluten free, nut free, soy free and kit friendly tabbouleh recipe that can be enjoyed with home-made hummus as a side dish or a light and refreshing lunch during a busy week.

Sorghum is a gluten-free grain, protein packed, rich with B vitamins, copper, iron, potassium, magnesium, and fibers. Sorghum has been shown to have anti-inflammatory, and immune supporting properties amongst other health benefits. You can look for it in the gluten-free section or the bulk bins at your grocery store, or at international food stores.

Prep Time 20 minutes

Cooking Time 45-60 minutes

Yields 4-6 Servings


  • 3/4 cup uncooked sorghum

  • 1 cup packed fresh parsley leaves

  • 1/2 cup packed fresh mint leaves

  • 1/2 cup packed fresh chives

  • 2 medium garlic cloves, minced

  • 1/2 cup of hemp hearts

  • 2 cups diced tomatoes

  • 4 spring onions/scallions, thinly sliced, including white and green parts

  • Fresh lemon zest (1 whole lemon)

  • Juice of 1 whole lemon

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar

  • Salt and paper, as desired


  • Put the sorghum in a medium pot and cover with water (add more as needed), bring the mixture to boil over medium heat, then reduce and simmer uncovered for 40-45 min until cooked (taste sorghum, texture should be chewy).

  • Drain off any excess water and transfer sorghum to a large bowl.

  • Add in minced garlic and hemp seeds to the bowl.

  • Finely chop fresh herbs, Parsley, Mint and Chives, and add to cooked sorghum.

  • Dice Tomatoes and add to cooked sorghum.

  • Thinly slice green onions and add to cooked sorghum.

  • Make the dressing: whisk together the lemon zest, lemon juice, olive oil, and vinegar.

  • Pour the dressing over the bowl and season with salt and pepper, as desired.

  • Mix everything together until well combined.

  • Suggestions for serving - serve with home-made hummus, pita chips or fresh pita bread. I like to serve it over a bed of fresh spring greens or arugula.

  • Enjoy a protein and nutrient packed, gluten free, flavorful, light and nourishing Tabbouleh!
