Gluten-free Couscous Taboulè recipe – No-cook, Healthy & Vegan too!

by Lucia

Did you know that there is also a couscous made from chickpea and lentils? No wheat, just legumes. And this gluten-free couscous taboulè recipe, I share with you today, is one of our top favourite recipes. It’s so nutrient, healthy and super-easy. It’s great as lunch or dinner, but also an excellent choice for picnic.

There are so many ways how to prepare couscous. The best thing about this recipe is that you don’t need to cook anything! It’s really so simple, that even if you don’t like cooking or you are a beginner, you can do it too! Just cut the ingredients, combine them together, leave it in a fridge for 24 hours and stir it from time to time. Quite easy, isn’t it?

This recipe works perfectly also with a classic couscous, so do not worry if you can’t find the one from legumes.

This recipe is also vegan, and its a great choice for lunch, dinner or a picnic.

The moment of preparing taboule is like a ritual for us, as we always prepare it when we go on a road trip. It’s so super easy, just prepare everything the day before. And on the other day take the couscous and fork with you and go exploring the world with a healthy lunch in your bag.

This recipe is rich in nutrients and minerals. Chickpea and lentils are an important source of protein and they have other very important minerals too. So, it’s an ideal choise for all those, who follow vegan or plant-based diet.

I am not an author of this recipe, but I have it from the mother of my boyfriend. And because it’s so super delicious, it is very worth to share it with you.

Where to buy legume couscous?

I buy this legume couscous in a small shop in our town. They have only biological products, all kinds of legumes, flours, teas or spices. I bring there my jars from home and they give me as much as I need. If you do not know about any of such shops around you, try to do some research. Google it or ask people around.

You can check some of my other recipes too. If you would like trying baking desserts with beans, try this grain-free recipe for Coconut & Cashew cake. It’s gluten-free, grain-free, even sugar-free (as it’s made with dry dates), and it’s made with white beans too.

However, If you are not sure about baking with beans (I highly recommend to try it once), you can check another recipe for this Autumn apple cake with walnuts. This is made with chickpea and buckwheat flour, and grated apples just makes it so moist and delicious.

Here, you find more recipes with chickpea flour. Or see all my recipes here.
