TABOULI

TABOULI
  • 1 cup dry bulgur wheat (Soak the tabouli before serving time. It needs to thoroughly marinate and chill.)
  • 1 1/2 cups boiling water
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon
  • 1/4 cup polyunsaturated olive oil
  • 1 heaping tsp crushed fresh garlic
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions (include greens)
  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 1 cucumber, diced
  • 1/2 tsp dried mint
  • 1 packed cup freshly chopped parsley (at least) 
  • Optional: chopped black olives (adds a delicious flavor).
  • Freshly ground black pepper (bad for you) or cayenne pepper which is more healthy for you.
1. Combine bulgur, boiling water and salt in a bowl. Cover and let stand 15 - 20 minutes or until bulgur is chewable.
2. Add lemon juice, garlic, oil and mint and mix thoroughly. Refrigerate 2- 3 hours. (Most of the time I don't have time to do this and it still tastes great)
3. Just before serving add the vegetables and mix gently. Correct seasonings.
