Weekend Recipe: Tabbouleh

This week, I’m highlighting Kinda Crunchy Kate’s Tabbouleh, which is a delicious and healthy snack!  Emily made this for me when I was in town last month- we really enjoyed it with tortilla chips.  It is so fresh and different!

Bulgar Wheat

Mixed Up Tabbouleh

Delicious with tortilla chips

Tabbouleh {from Kinda Crunchy Kate}

  • 1 cup bulgur wheat
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt ( I used less.)
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp oregano (dried)
  • 1/4 cup green onions (chopped)
  • 1 bunch fresh parsley (Chopped)
  • 1 bunch fresh mint (chopped) — use less mint than the parsley
  • 1 large tomato (chopped)

Kate’s directions:  In medium bowl pour boiling water over bulgur wheat and let sit for 1/2 hour. After 1/2 hour mix in all the rest of the ingredients and stir. It needs to sit for a few hours in the fridge to develop all the flavors. I just kind of messed around with the amounts of the fresh herbs until I thought it tasted good and looked pretty. We scoop it up with tortilla chips, but I think you are supposed to serve it on a bed of lettuce.
