Tabbouleh is a Middle Eastern salad mostly containing parsley. It’s supposed to be a lemony flavored salad that pairs well with French fries, cabbage pieces to scoop with, or romaine lettuce pieces to scoop with as well. This is a fairly easy and delicious dish to make, the only time consuming part is stripping the parsley.
Before anything, get a cup of water and pour your ¾ cup of cracked wheat (Bulgur) in it. This will take up to an hour or so for the water to be absorbed by the Bulgur and expand into softer pieces. Some people prefer to use Quinoa if they can’t find cracked wheat which is fine, but not as good. If the Bulgur slightly expanded, but there’s no more water in the bowl, then just add some more water. When you feel it’s expanded enough after a while, then drain all the water out.
You’re going to need a lot of parsley depending on how many people you’re serving. Start off by removing all the parsley off the stems, you don’t want any stems in the bowl. Once you’re satisfied with the amount of parsley you have, you need to finely chop it up; not to a mush, but just a very fine chop where they no longer look like parsley leaves. After you’re done chopping it all up and you feel like it’s not enough “lettuce”, you could definitely add another bunch of Parsley until you’re satisfied with the amount.
Dice up about 3-4 juicy tomatoes and half an onion. Pour this on top of your finely chopped Parsley. The Bulgur should be about twice its size now, so you can go ahead and pour that on top as well (after draining the water, of course). The final step is making the dressing which will only consist of Lemon juice, cannabis oil, and salt.
The dressing is supposed to be more on the lemony side, so you can eye it out and taste it as you go. You’d want about ½ a cup of lemon juice, 4-6 teaspoons of Cannabis oil (which can either be bought or made at home), and some salt; of course this can be altered depending on your taste buds.
