Tabouli

Tabouli is a Middle Eastern salad that makes a great side dish for falafel or as a addition to a wrap. This version replaces the traditional bulgur wheat with hemp seeds to create a totally raw dish.

imageHemp seeds are available in most health food stores or the health food section of your local grocery store. They are soft and have a nutty flavor. They are full of healthy fats and protein and antioxidants and other nutrients. I also throw them into my smoothies to give them a creamy texture.

Here is my raw falafel topped with tabouli, olives and tahini sauce. Very tasty. I didn't have mint so I left that out of my tabouli.

Peace

I really like the substitution of hemp seeds instead of wheat bulgur as I also think seeds are far more nutrient dense and this makes the recipe gluten free.
Thanks!
