Meatless Monday: Tabouli


2 large tomatoes or 2 Cups Diced tomatoes
1 cup chopped green onion
4 cups finely chopped parsley flat leaf
1 cup yellow onion chopped
5-8 leaves fresh mint
1 or 2 cloves of garlic minced 
1/4 cup bulgar
1 tsp dry mint
1 tsp salt
1/2 Cup lemon juice
1/2 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper


1. Rinse bulgar in a bowl and poor off excess water, let sit for 10 minutes.
2. Rinse and finely chop parsley and fresh mint leaves and place in a bowl. 3. Add chopped tomato, garlic, green onion, yellow onion, and soaked bulgar and combine with parsley.
4. In a separate small bowl combine salt, dry mint, lemon juice, olive oil and cayenne pepper then add to parsley mixture and let sit for 5 minutes before serving to allow bulgar to absorb some of the dressing.

Can be served in individual leaves of lettuce as an appetizer, as a side dish with pita bread, falafel, grape leaves, etc. or add in some additional ingredients to make it a meal!

Many people also enjoy cucumber in their tabouli. Be creative, try different summer veggies and experiment with adding in different types of grains. Add in chick peas or feta cheese for protein and you have a meal!
