I did make a few changes to the "classic" recipe, just to experiment a bit. Tabouli typically uses olive oil, which I did without, and I used quinoa because I couldn't find bulgur at my local supermarket. Either one will work! It is very refreshing and pairs well with numerous different food items! I've tried it on pizza, on toast, with chips, with scrambled eggs, in a grilled cheese sandwich...much more too!
1 medium tomato, diced
2 bunches(about 2 cups) of parsley, finely chopped
1 cup quinoa
1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup mint leaves, finely chopped
lemon juice of 1 lemon
salt&pepper to taste
Prepare quinoa according to package directions. Cool completely. Place chopped veggies in a medium bowl, add cooled quinoa. Squeeze lemon juice over everything cut side up to prevent the seeds from dropping into the salad. Stir everything together and add salt and pepper to your liking. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.
And since my boyfriend is not a huge veggie lover like I am, this whole bowl is mine. Is it so wrong to make something purposely because you know your significant other won't eat it?!
