Taboule

Taboule 3

A healthy diet should include a large part of leafy greens. This Middle Eastern classic is an easy way to get your greens. I love it when you can take a classic and improve upon it. This Taboule is wheat free. Instead of bulgur wheat I add hemp seeds. Most people I serve it to do not even realise the switch. Yet when they eat it they say it is the most delicious taboule they have had. Now you can make and enjoy this too.

1 bunch parsley, chopped

1 bunch mint, chopped

1/2 punnet grape tomatoes, halved

1 large onion or 6 green onions, chopped

3 tbsp stone crushed olive oil

1/2 lemon, juiced

2-3 tbsp hemp seeds

salt to taste

Mix everything together and let sit for an hour for the flavors to mingle. I use the grape tomatoes in winter as the large hothouse tomatoes are so tasteless.

This will bring a touch of the Mediterranean sunshine to our winter days.
