Tabbouleh


I love experimenting with recipes from different cultures and cuisines.  Tabbouleh is one of the things that I have always loved when going to a middle eastern restaurant and have always wanted to make it.  Now the weather is getting a little better – and I feel like I should be eating summery food I decided to try my hand at making some Tabbouleh.  I did some research and tried to incorporate different ingredients from different recipes that I had found to make it as authentic as I could.


The outcome was fantastic!  A delicious accompaniment to grilled meat or part of a salad box that is fantastically low in fat!

I am going to be experimenting with bulgar wheat more often as its a great cupboard staple to have.  Its really yummy, easy to use and takes on the flavours of all the ingredients you put with it.  As a grain its very low fat but immensely good for you!
