Truly Tabbouleh! (with couscous)

This has been a favorite of ours for years and since J lost his taste buds, it’s especially been a good recipe. It uses couscous instead of bulgur. The pungent parsley, mint, and onions topped with the lemon juice give a wonderful punch of flavor. Enjoy this favorite of ours!


1 cup couscous

2 cups chopped green onions

3 cups chopped parsley

1/4 cup fresh mint

1/2 cup lemon juice

1/3 cup olive oil

1 1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Cook the couscous.

Chop together the tomatoes, green onions, parsley and mint. Beat into this mixture the oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper.

Combine the chopped mixture into the couscous until well-blended.

Serves 6-8

Note: If fresh mint is not available, use dried. Soak in lukewarm water for 10 minutes then drain.
