Tabouli is a traditional vegetarian Lebanese dish made from tomatoes, parsley, mint, burglar wheat, onion and seasoned with lemon and olive oil. 

It’s traditionally served as part of a mezze but I think this fresh salad goes perfectly with a grilled piece of meat.

I have made a Sarah friendly version, which is totally FODMAP friendly. 

What you need:

½ cup quinoa, rinsed

1 cup water

1 punnet cherry tomatoes, quartered

2 Lebanese cucumbers, finely chopped

2 cups parsley, finely chopped

¼ cup mint, finely chopped

3 tbsp lemon juice

1 ½ tbsp olive oil

Salt and pepper

What to do:

In a pot on a low heat, combine the quinoa, water and a pinch of salt and cover with a lid

Simmer for 15 minutes or until the water is completely absorbed then remove from heat and “fluff up” with a fork 

In a large bowl combine all salad ingredients, dress with olive oil and lemon juice, season with salt and pepper.

Enjoy! S x
