My favourite tabouli recipe

Requires lots of chopping, but little of anything else.

tabouli recipe

Each of my friends makes it slightly differently, some add feta, others add much more cous cous. I do it like this:

3 bunches finely chopped parsley
1 1/2 cups chopped fresh mint
1 cup prepped cous cous
1 chopped firm tomato
½ chopped cucumber
1 red pepper
1 yellow pepper
1/3 finely chopped red onion
1/2 cup extra Virgin olive oil
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste

Prep the parsley and mint and set aside. In a large bowl, mix cous cous, tomatoes, onion, peppers and cucumber with lemon juice, salt and pepper. Mix in the parsley and mint and pour in the olive oil.

Et voila. I found the photo here.

    I thought tabbouleh had bulgur not couscous

    You’re right — I should specify this recipe isn’t strictly authentic, but it is strictly delicious. I use whole wheat cous cous because it takes all of five minutes to make.

    I bet quinoa would work too if you’re looking to use something gluten-free.
