Taboule under 10 minutes

This traditional Lebanese dish is so delicious and yet always seems to be take such a large amount of effort. Last night however, I decided to embrace my Lebanese roots and stop complaining about the effort it takes to make what I think is a trademark of the Lebanese tradition. That's when I came to realize it really only takes about 10 minutes to make taboule - at least to make 1-2 portions.

Note that this taboule is the real deal. The ones you find in stores with A LOT of bulgar are not good verisons of taboule ;)

Here's what you'll need:
  • 1 bunch of parsley
  • half a tomato - chopped into cubes
  • 1/4 of an onion - chopped into cubes
  • 1tbsp of bulgar (for lack of bulgur at my house, I used 2 pinches of cooked couscous because it doesn't really taste the same)
  • 1/2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1/2 tbsp of lemon juice
*add olive oil or lemon juice to taste.

  1. Chop the stems off the parsley bunch then chop the parsley into tiny little pieces
  2. Add the chopped tomatoes, chopped onions, olive oil, lemon juice and bulgar
  3. Mix well.
*If you're not going to serve right away, hold the olive oil and lemon juice. Add and mix right before serving only.
