Food Matters Project #27: Summer Tabbouleh Salad

It’s another Food Matters Project recipe!  This weeks host is Sarah from Simply Whole Kitchen.  From the Food Matter Cookbook, she chose Mark Bittman’s recipe for Quinoa Tabbouleh.  Check out Sarah’s version, and what everyone else had made!

Mark Bittman suggests a different version of tabbouleh, which is usually made out of bulgur, tomatoes, parsley, mint, onion, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice and salt.  He recommends making this dish with quinoa, and adds more veggies.  We didn’t have an quinoa in our pantry, so we used bulgur.
