Whole Grain Tabbouleh

Whole Grain Tabbouleh

6 Servings

30 minutes or fewer

Here’s a twist on the traditional Middle Eastern tabbouleh that uses whole grains or bulgur. The whole grains make this salad chewier and more filling than a typical tabbouleh. I especially like to prepare this dish with kamut, a large golden grain with lots of character and a buttery taste. You’ll also get good results with wheat berries, brown rice, barley or any combination of your favorite grains.
  • 3 cups cooked whole grains (such as kamut, wheat berries or brown rice)
  • 2 cups seeded and diced plum tomatoes
  • 2 cups peeled, seeded and diced cucumber
  • 1 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
  • ½ cup finely chopped red onion
  • ⅓ cup finely chopped fresh mint or 1 to 2 tsp. dried
  • 3 Tbs. roasted garlic oil, or 3 Tbs. plain olive oil plus 2 to 3 small cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 to 5 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  1. In large bowl, combine grains, tomatoes, cucumber, parsley, onion and mint. Drizzle oil and 3 tablespoons lemon juice over the mixture while you stir. Add salt, pepper and additional lemon juice if necessary to give salad a nice puckery edge.

Isn't it nice knowing that you can eat this healthy stuff, and get high levels of nutrients, and not have to participate in unspeakable levels of cruelty to animals? Ahhhh. It's a good feeling.
