mmm.....I am craving some Reef's Kitchen.
My friend Tara told me that she made Tabouleh last week.....and I haven't stopped thinking about it since!
Must. Make. Tabouleh.
So I did. I threw in a few extras....because as long as we're eating a veggie meal, we might as well eat LOTS of veggies, right?
First I had to buy the bulgur wheat.
I had noooo idea what I was looking for--or where to find it.
Ta-Da!! Bulk section at Whole Foods.
It looks like this. (check out that hand modeling!)
To prepare it, add one part bulgur, to 3 parts boiling water.
Let soak for 1-2 hours.
Tabouleh (with spinach and cucumbers)
1/2 c dry bulgur (prepare as shown above)
2 tomatoes, diced
1/4 c red onion, finely chopped
1/2 a cucumber, diced
1/2 c spinach, coarsely chopped
1/2 c parsley, finely chopped
1-2 TBS fresh mint*, finely chopped
(*I am not a mint lover, some recipes call for up to 1/2 c mint--so add to taste)
juice of 1 lemon
2-3 TBS olive oil
a good sized pinch of salt
Combine all ingredients, and let sit for 30 min-to an hour before eating.
We ate it for a quick dinner with flat bread and hummus.
I also think it would be perfect with salmon!
ps. anyone have any other good bulgur recipes?
