    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.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In a covered 3-quart saucepan, heat 6 cups water (or water/broth combo) to boiling on high. In medium bowl, place bulgur; cover with 2 cups of the liquid. Let stand 30 minutes. Drain well.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, to remaining liquid in saucepan, add lentils and 1/4 teaspoon salt (if using part vegetarian broth) or 1/2 teaspoon salt (if using water only). Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 15-20 minutes or until lentils are tender. Drain lentils well in colander.
    3. 3
      In large bowl, whisk lemon juice, oil, 1/2 - 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper until blended. Add warm bulgur and lentils; stir to coat. Let stand 15 minutes or until cool.
    4. 4
      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.
