Tabbouleh is a Lebanese cuisine dish based on Bulgur groats. The dish resembles a salad, in which, apart from groats you can find tomatoes, cucumbers, lots of greens such as mint, parsley and green onions. Additionally, the dish is seasoned to taste with lemon juice and olive oil.
Tabbouleh is served cold mainly as an addition to meat. For me, it tastes best with grilled meat, schnitzels and skewers.
Thanks to the presence of fresh mint and lemon, this dish is extremely aromatic.
Bulgur can easily be bought in most stores, so be tempted and make this dish at home.
Cook the bulgur groats according to the instructions on the packaging. I used bulgur in packed in plastic bags and cooked it for about 12 minutes.
Pour the cooked groats out of the water and let them cool down. Once they cooled down, place it in a bowl.
Put the tomatoes in boiling water for a few seconds. Then take them out and remove the skin and the seeds. Cut them into small cubes.
Wash the cucumber, remove the seeds and the mushy inside and cut it into small cubes.
Chop the mint, parsley and spring onion very finely.
Put all the ingredients in the bowl. Add lemon juice, olive oil, salt, grated lemon zest and also some pepper according to taste. Mix it well.
You can also add garlic, bell pepper, red onion or pomegranate.
