Super Easy Tabbouleh

So, a little back story – when I was a nanny in Calgary – I cooked A LOT – and it was so much fun!  I went through recipes, wrote a shopping list and then the food magically appeared over night while I was sleeping or I was given a HUGE delicious food budget to feed everyone!

I cooked a lot for the family.  Lambs, roasts, pasta etc.  It was an amazing experience for me, especially since they enjoyed eating healthy, as did I.

I remember one morning when I showed up, the mom mentioned that she wanted tabbouleh for dinner.  I had NO idea what it was. I found a recipe in a cookbook and it became a dish I made regularly!  I’ve always played around with it a bit for different flavours.  Last night I created a super easy – user friendly tabbouleh recipe!

Quick and Easy Tabbouleh

1 cup bulgur (I only use Bob’s Red Mills)image

Boil about 1.5 cups of hot water and pour over bulgur – let it sit until liquid is absorbed.

1 bunch of parsley

2x tomatoes (or 1.5 cup cherry tomatoes)

2 TBSP Apple Cider Vinegar (traditional is using lemon juice)

1 TBSP Oil

Salt and Pepper

__________________________________________

After liquid in the bulgur is absorbed, add in parsley, tomatoes, ACV, oil and salt and pepper..

Stir and let sit!!  Best if you let it sit for a bit to absorb the flavours.

Great add in’s:

Feta (for the non dairy free crew)

Balsamic Vinegar

Fresh mint

Lemon juice

Cucumber

There ya have it folks – super easy and super healthy tabbouleh – remember if you are gluten free you can always sub in a different grain for the bulgur – think Quinoa!

This is so easy, and can be done in under 20 minutes if needed!  Also is AWESOME the next day.

I served it over salad, with some Goddess Dressing Drizzled over!!

With grilled corn and trout!

  4. I LOVE tabbouleh. I have been buying the Far East brand that comes with all of the spices mixed in already... and then per box suggestion, add a few extras. Black olives, red pepper, cucumber, basil, lemon juice, feta... yum. Perfect for these crazy hot summer days.
