Tabouleh Recipe

This wonderful Tabouleh Recipe for Sprouted Tabouleh Salad is fresh and sassy.

Sprouted Tabouleh Salad is based on the traditional Lebanese salad made from bulgur (cracked wheat), mint, parsley, lemon and olive oil. This recipe mixes things up a bit by adding some non-traditional flavours and ingredients. Sassy!

2 bunches fresh parsley
1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
2 tomatoes diced finely
2 scallions (green onions) chopped finely
1 cup mixed sprouts – any kind
1 cup bulgur
1 1/2 cup boiling water
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 tsp. salt
Pepper to taste

1. Place the bulgur in a bowl and pour the boiling water over the top. Add salt. Cover the bowl and let stand for about 1/2 hour. The bulgur will absorb all the water.
2. Chop the parsley and mint very finely. I know this looks like a lot of parsley but that is the main ingredient in this salad.
3. When the bulgur is ready, put it in a serving bowl. Add the chopped parsley and mint, tomatoes, green onion, and sprouts.
4. Mix the lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper together and pour over the bulgur-vegetable salad. Mix well.
5. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving.

From my blog dated July 18 2010:
Yesterday I wanted to make the Sprouted Tabouleh Salad Recipe but didn't have a) sprouts or b) bulgur. WHAT TO DO? I made up as I went along - improvisation.... necessity is the mother of invention....Anyway... I used QUINOA in place of bulgur (sometimes AKA "kinwa"). And I added one hot pepper finely chopped. And I skipped the sprouts. It was De-lish-us! Try it!
