Tabouli Talk

Tabouli is a favorite food around here. I make it often to take to work for an easy lunch, add into a hummus and veggie pita pocket, with salted pita chips, serve with a light dinner of fish for Hubby… the list goes on.

What is Tabouli? It’s a mix of bulgar wheat, seasonings, and vegetables…. and other things depending on your taste.

And it’s so easy to make! Buy the package of Tabouli (comes with seasoning packet).. it can be found in most groceries, sometimes in the international/ethnic food section. Add boiling water to the bulgar and seasonings and allow to sit in the fridge according to the directions. While the wheat absorbs the water, I prepare my ingredients. I add diced tomatoes, finely chopped Italian parsley (it has a softer taste to it), red onion, lemon juice and olive oil. Some people add cucumber, garlic, salts and such. toss ingredients in and fluff with a fork. It’s that easy! The best part is that the water is the only part that you really have to measure, all of the other ingredients are to your taste. Serve cold. mmm…..Enjoy!
