Peel the cucumber, lengthwise and cut out the core. Clean, halve and deseed the peppers. Peel the onion and garlic. Cut all the prepared ingredients into small cubes and put them in a bowl. Clean, chop and add the parsley. Squeeze the orange and lemon.

Put the quinoa in a pot with twice the water and a pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Add the orange juice, a little turmeric and harissa and let it infuse for about 15 minutes. At the end of the cooking time, the grains should still have some bite and there should be no liquid left in the pot. If necessary, strain some more quinoa.

Add the quinoa to the vegetables in the bowl and mix well. Season the quinoa tabbouleh with olive oil, lemon juice, chili, salt and pepper.
