TABBOULEH

Tabbouleh is a famous salad dish in Lebanon, Syria and Jordan.

Ingredients:

1 cup of fine bourghoul (ground wheat)
3 bunches of parsley
1 bunch of fresh mint
4 tomatoes
4 green onions or 1 white onion
6 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

Preparation:

1 Wash the bourghoul in a deep dish by filling it with water and gently pouring out the water so that it will take away any impurity.

2 Leave the bourghoul to soak in cold water for 30 mn.

3 Finely dice the tomatoes and onion and chop the parsley and mint.

4 Mix together the oil, salt and lemon for the sauce.

5 Squeeze the borghoul between your hands to press out the water and mix all the ingredients together.

Tips:

The tabbouleh is best eaten with small lettuce leaves or better yet, fresh vine leaves rolled up in a cone shape.
