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 Twisted Evil

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

I am a huge fan of tabouli!
Never made it from scratch, though. Confused
Usually just buy a pre-made package - add water and tomatoes.
I will try this sometime. Seems relatively simple. Very Happy
Thanks for sharing, Ken.

First time I had it was from a friend's fathers deli. I couldn't get enough! I wish there were more Lebanese living in Sugar Land, the cuisine is outstanding. I'm just too lazy to make more than kafta kabobs.

Yeah, I know I'm lazy. I have a food processor that would make it a breeze but I'm hoping a lebanese family will move into the area and keep me lazy. If you haven't had the real thing you are missing out. It's like the difference between Sabbretts hot dogs and Oscar Meyer, no comparison. Texas is a sausage state, I love sausage but when it comes to hotdogs Sabbretts there is no comparison. If you are curious you can sometimes find them at HEB, Nathan's runs a close second but I prefer Sabbretts.
