Tabbouleh
Schedule a Call

I had never eaten Tabbouleh … until recently. Some good friends introduced it to me, on a lunch play date, in this medley. I am so excited and so grateful to be building my meatless recipe repertoire. I love having new, healthy, go-to options – especially ones that have a lot of plant-based protein. I have been trying to expand my food favorites to include more vegetarian options.

This combination has saved me from stopping for fast food – Even on long road trips! Easy enough for me to dip, dip, crunch … with one hand. 
So, what is it tabbouleh?
According to Wikipedia ( https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tabbouleh ) :
“Tabbouleh (Arabicتبولة tabūlah; alsotabouleh or tab(b)ouli) is a Levantinevegetarian dish (sometimes considered a salad) traditionally made of tomatoes, finely chopped parsleymintbulgur andonion, and seasoned with olive oil,lemon juice, and salt. Some variations add garlic or lettuce, or use couscousinstead of bulgur.

Here is a Recipe I found on The Wanderlust Kitchen that looks beautifully delicious! ( link: http://thewanderlustkitchen.com/tabbouleh-salad/ )
I haven’t made it myself yet, but this recipe seems easy enough and looks incredibly yummy. I buy the fresh-packed tabbouleh from WholeFoods. I make quinoa at home and then combine the tabbouleh and quinoa together (for extra protein!) and store it in the fridge. 
I have been eating it with red-roasted-pepper hummus (also fresh-packed at WholeFoods) and their 365 brand Seaweed rice crackers. 
I love following through on the commitment to nourish my body with healthy foods. And it has been exciting finding more plant-based foods that help fill and fuel my body. When I follow through on healthy choices it makes me feel more at ease inside – invigorated, even. Joyful. 
The best part – my children enjoy this combination as well! Yummy!
Nourish your Body, Nourish your Self. Enjoy!
