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
