Walnut Tabbouleh

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!

250g bulghar wheat
500g tomatoes
juice of 2 lemons
3 spring onions
50g walnut kernels
50g raisins

“I have more and more guests who are gluten-intolerant, and I make this for them for breakfast. Neither buckwheat flour nor ground almonds contain gluten, and they do make the mixture more crumbly, so it is best served in a shallow dish. This is a delicious alternative to diet bread!” (Sylviane Tatin)
