Cook the quinoa in 2 cups water, bringing it to a boil then turning down to low to simmer for 25-30 minutes.
Put the zest and juice of the lemon in a large salad bowl, then stir in the garlic and a pinch of salt. You can add a bit of olive or flax oil, but it's not necessary. Put the chopped vegetables and parsley in the bowl, and toss them with the dressing. Add the quinoa to the bowl, and toss to get everything flavored.
Serve topped with the sunflower seeds. I hope you enjoy this quinoa tabouli salad, the latest of my healthy vegan recipes.
