Tabbouleh Recipe

Tabbouleh, Tabouli, or Tabbouli…however you spell it, it is a great side dish to any meal. Lately I’ve made it my main meal, with some sautéed sweet chicken and olives. Pair with my whole wheat pita and you have a filling meal.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup bulgur and quinoa, cooked
  • 2 tbsps olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon, juice
  • 3 tbsp chives, sliced
  • 4 cups chopped fresh parsley
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh mint
  • 1 roma tomato, chopped
  • 1 cucumber – diced small, maybe 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ground black pepper to taste

Directions

Cook your quinoa and bulgur according to the instructions on your package. If you find them separate, the recipe is typically made with bulgur. Take the parsley and put it into the food processor along with your fresh mint and chop until very fine and mixed. (Diet hint- spinach is an appetite suppressant, add a cup of fresh spinach to the food processor to add, you won’t notice the difference and get the added benefits). I usually have to chop in small batches with the greens close to the blades. Place your parsley and mint mixture in a bowl and add your chives, lemon juice, diced tomato, diced cucumber, cooked bulgur, and salt and pepper. Mix and chill for an hour. Serve when ready. This usually makes enough for a day or two of salads.

Roasted Beet & Goat Cheese Spinach Salad

The delicious combo of the sweet blueberries, creamy goat cheese and the roasted beet is a lively twist on the usual dinner salad. Add walnuts or chicken for more protein or keep it light by skipping the dressing!

Ingredients

+ 1 Yellow Beet

+ 1/2 slice of red onion

+ 2 cups spinach

+ 1/2 cup blueberries

+ 2 tbsp of homemade caesar salad dressing

+ 1/2 avocado diced

Method

Slice or cut your beets into quarters, brush with olive oil, salt and pepper on each side, and bake in oven at 380 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes if in slices, or 40 minutes if in large quarters. My recommendation is to cut in 1/4 inch slices, roast for 20 minutes at 380 degrees and you’ll end up with crispy edges with a taste almost like a potato chip.  Prepare red onion, avocado, blueberries and toss with spinach. Once the beets are ready toss them in the salad, salt and pepper to taste and dress with desired dressing. My homemade caesar dressing can be found here. Easy and delicious! beet salad beet salad
