    TasteTester's Note:

    I love tabbouleh, and this recipe is really refreshing to enjoy on a hot summer's day. The recipe comes from the July 2009 issue of Good Housekeeping. This makes 12 side-dish servings or 6 main-dish servings. The cooking time is actually the time needed for cooking, cooling and refrigerating.

      Stir tomatoes, cucumber, and green onions into bulgur mixture. Cover lentil tabbouleh and refrigerate at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight. To serve, stir in parsley, mint, and garnish with lemon wedges.

      This is a good all-in-one salad for vegans. It's not the type of tabbouleh I am used to, as it has way more substance and not as much parsley, but it's tasty in its own way. I used buckwheat instead of bulgur and had to boil it in 1 liter of water/veg stock for 20 minutes. I also had no green onions, so instead I used young garlic, which has a similar mild flavor.

      I like the traditional parsley kind better. Way too much mint. I didn't have any vegetable broth. Thought about using chicken but didn't. Maybe that would have been better.
