Recipe: Vegaliciousrecipies.com

Tabouli  (pronounced: tuh-boo-lee) is a Middle Eastern wheat salad. is a Levantine salad traditionally made of bulgur, finely chopped parsley  and mint, tomato and spring onion, seasoned with lemon juice and olive oil

It is eaten cold and is a terrific substitute for a potato or rice dish. It needs to chill for at least 1 hour before serving. It’s actually best to make it the day before serving so that all the flavors blend together.

Most of the ingredients in tabouli are virtually fat free. The bulgur wheat used as the basis of the dish contains no cholesterol and has less than 0.1 percent fat.

The herbs, tomato and onion added to the bulgur in taboule are likewise almost fat free. The olive oil used as a dressing does add a relatively small amount of fat to the dish, but the fat in olive oil is unsaturated. Saturated fat is believed to be the most harmful to your overall health.
