Tabouli or...

Tabouleh

2x, 3x or 4x these amounts this is one of my favorite things to take to a potluck; most likely no one else will bring tabouli and it's quick to mix.
  • cucumber, diced
  • several roma or 2 dozen cherry or grape tomatoes, diced (remove seeds if you're not lazy)
  • parsley, finely chopped to taste (I use only a tiny amount)
  • 1/2 cup bulgur wheat
  • 1 or 2 (or 3 or 4) green onion(s)
  • lemon juice
  • olive oil
  • allspice (optional)
  • nutmeg (optional)
  • cinnamon (optional)
  • salt
Pour hot water over the wheat and let it soak until soft and most of the water has been absorbed. Mix the diced veggies then add the wheat and mix some more; add lemon juice and olive oil to get the right flavor and consistency. Add the spice(s) and salt and mix a bit more. Refrigerate, pass around the table, eat and enjoy!
