Ingredients

Bulgur wheat* ½ Cup
Parsley 2 Bunches
Tomatoes 2-3 Large
Mint ½ Bunch
Green onions ½ Bunch
Olive oil 1/3-1/2 Cup
Lemons 2 Large
Salt 1 Teaspoon or as desired
Black pepper 1/8 teaspoon
Cinnamon (optional) 1/8 teaspoon

* bulgar wheat, in some stores, will come in different levels of coarseness.  For best results, look for ground bulgar.  If you can’t find it, the regular version will do.

  1. Wash bulgur with water and drain well.
  1. Add the juice of the above lemons to bulgur. Set aside. (Bulgar will “cook” in the lemon juice)
  1. Wash the vegetables.
  1. Cut the tomatoes into small cubes and add to the bulgur and mix.
  1. Mince the parsley, mint and green onions then add to the tomato/bulgur mix.
  1. Add salt, spices and olive oil to above mixture and mix.

Tabouli may be served w/lettuce or cabbage leaves (as a wrap).
