The Vegetable Problem ~ Part 2 ~ Tabouli (or Tabouleh)
« on: January 23, 2013, 02:23:24 AM »
Here's another one, in case you're asked to accomodate non-meat types.....

 Tabouli (or Tabouleh)

This is cracked wheat known as bulgur (rhymes with vulgar, I know)

 1 Cup uncooked medium grain bulgur

 1 Cup fresh lemon juice (3-4 lemons)

 2-3 large garlic cloves fine chopped
(I use maybe double)

Sea salt & cracked black pepper to taste

1 tsp. ground cumin

1/4 Cup olive oil (a little more is OK)

1 standard can cooked chick peas (garbanzo beans), drained / washed

1/2 Cup fresh mint,  fairly fine chopped

1Cup fine chopped green onion

1 large cucumber, small diced
(I use English, or 'Hot house')

Optional: Small diced roma tomato (2-3 each)

THEN ~~~>Put bulgur in a bowl & fill to 1/2 inch above whatever amount of material you have
Wait about 20 minutes & the wheat will soak up the water....



Then mix oil,lemon juice,salt, pepper,cumin,& garlic & stir into bulgur....

Wait another 20 minutes for it to soak in & then add solids mint, chick peas, gr. onion, cucmber, tomato....


Good to go....

Green onion & cucumber ~~~>



Mint ~~~>


Adding in ....


This was a no tomato batch ~~~>


This stuff is weirdly filling & satisfying, considering you're eating grain (like cows eat)
Mint, oil & lemon juice are the most important items...don't go shy on those...More is better.....

To send this one completely around the block, grate 2 large
fresh beets into the finished mix....crazy purple BEET tabouli



PS: this was a 4x batch...You can tell by the scribbled little piece of paper in this photo I just found...

    Covered, damper-controlled cooking.....IF YOU PLEASE !!!

Yeah, it's really good stuff & there's a wide variation in flavor as you add little tweeks in.....
Tomato goes one way, serving with maybe a yorgurt sauce will send it different, the beets change it some & are really wild looking......
You can add different things to make it spicier, etc.
