Tabbouleh Recipe

I love tabbouleh... I really do. It is so fresh and clean on the palate and is such a great side dish or even on its own. I was making veggie burgers the other day and I wanted a nice condiment that could be used on the burger or as an accompaniment. This is such a quick and easy dish that can be made for your lunchbox, dinner or even as a snack. I prefer to make it with couscous as I like the texture better but feel free to use burghul (cracked wheat) if you wish. I hope you enjoy this recipe... Jerome and I ate so much of it, leaving us with green teeth! :)

serves 6

    1/2 cup uncooked couscous*
    2 cups parsley, finely chopped
    ¼ cup 
tightly packed mint, finely chopped
    1  purple onion, finely chopped
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    ½ cup diced tomato
    ½ cup diced cucumber
    2 - 3 tablespoons lemon juice
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    good pinch of salt

  1.  Prepare couscous according to packet instructions and set aside.
  2. Add all ingredients to the bowl and carefully toss to combine.
  3. Serve immediately. 

  • *Couscous can be substituted for burghul.


  1. Oh YUM! Sounds fabulous! I will defiantly try it.

    My favorite veggie burger is the quinoa and chickpea one from Vegan Diner. It is insane! With some guacamole, salad and red peppers one it.
