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!

Ingredients for 4 people

250g bulghar wheat
500g tomatoes
juice of 2 lemons
3 spring onions
parsley
50g walnut kernels
50g raisins
6 tablespoons olive oil
salt & pepper
chives

Method

1. Put the bulghar wheat in a salad bowl, pour over 200ml of boiling water and leave to swell. Fluff with a fork when all the water has been absorbed.
2. Cut the tomatoes in half, remove the seeds then cut into small dice. Finely chop the spring onions and parsley and coarsely chop the walnuts.
3. Add the tomatoes, spring onions, parsley, walnuts, raisins, lemon juice and olive oil to the bulghar wheat, mixing them in well. Season to taste and cover the bowl with cling film.
4. Chill for at least 4 hours in the fridge.
5. Finely chop the chives and sprinkle over the tabbouleh just before serving.

I would like to share with you one of my favourite recipes. YENN B&B tries to minimise its environmental footprint and to support fair trade. One of the ways we do this is by offering organic produce in our breakfasts and by using organic cleaning products. Added to this is the fact that Leuven is the world capital of bananas. I often tell this story to my guests who think I’m joking before realising that it’s true. (Nadine Gregoor)
