A Taste of the Middle East!

When Matt told me he was part Syrian awhile back, I immediately replied, “Oh, like Syrian bread?” “Yeah, with tabbouleh!” he said.  Tabbouleh…yes, I LOVE tabbouleh!  Matt grew up with the stuff, but I discovered it much later.  He’s been asking me to make some for weeks now, and I got a really great price on bulgur, so the time had come!

Tabbouleh

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup bulgur (uncooked, then add water according to directions)
  • 1 bunch of minced scallions
  • 1 bunch chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 English cucumber, diced
  • 1 package of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 medium red onion, chopped
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 tsp. sea salt

Directions:

  • Once your bulgur is ready, mix everything together and ENJOY!

Apparently, my tabbouleh rocks according to Matt!  I don’t put mint in it, because I’m not a fan, but many traditional recipes call for mint.  Sans the mint, I heart tabbouleh!  And it is SO good for you!  Double score!  Oh yeah, and this would be great on Syrian bread! 😉

Delicious & great for a nice 70 degree weather day!
