Tabbouleh

This classic Middle-Eastern side dish freshens up any plate. Serve alongside grilled meats and fish, falafel, hummus and pita, or any other savory favorites.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Bulgur – rinsed
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Olive Oil
  • 2 Tomato – diced (2 cups)
  • 1 Cucumber – English, peeled and diced (2 cups)
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 3 1/2 cup Parsley – roughly chopped
  • 1/3 cup Mint – roughly chopped
  • 5 Green Onions – roughly sliced (1/2 cup)
  • 3 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 2 Garlic, clove – minced
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper, ground

Directions

1

Combine bulgur with water, 1 tsp oil, and 1/4 tsp salt in the Cooking Pot. Close the lid, select the GRAINS setting.

2

In a separate bowl, combine tomatoes, cucumber, and 1/4 tsp salt. Set aside for 10 minutes to allow the salt to pull water from the vegetables.

3

While the bulgur cooks and the cucumbers and tomatoes cure, whisk lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl or jar.

4

Once the bulgur is cooked, open the lid, fluff the grains, and transfer to a large mixing bowl.

5

Drain the cucumber and tomato mixture, then combine all ingredients, including the dressing, in a large bowl. Toss until evenly mixed.
