Walnut Tabbouleh

The ingredients of tabbouleh vary in different countries. In Lebanon, it is made with bulghar wheat (aka bulgur), tomatoes, onions, lemons and herbs. In Morocco, it is made with couscous, tomatoes, onions, lemons, parsley and mint. And other parts of the Levant, it is made with semolina, tomatoes, onions, lemons, herbs and raisins. Pascaline of Les Folies de la Serve B&B has added walnuts to make her own version, which is delicious!

We therefore make sure our breakfast buffet contains plenty of them, in breads, pastries and these individual millet soufflés and in our marmelades, jams and fresh fruit straight from our garden. These millet soufflés can be served for breakfast or dessert. They are improved by serving with fruit jam (e.g. our Raspberry & Rhubarb) or some fresh fruit! (Cécile Voisin)
