Farm-Fresh Fig & Red Quinoa Tabouli

Fresh from our farm, the figs in this delightful tabouli lend a burst of natural sweetness, elevating a classic dish to a whole other level. Enjoy the earthy richness of red quinoa mingling with the sweetness of each fig, creating a symphony of flavors and textures that will tantalize the taste buds.

Enjoy this farm-fresh creation from Chef Reyna and our culinary team at our farm, Tres Estrellas and our culinary center La Cocina Que Canta.
