Raw Tabbouleh Salad

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

This is the first time I have ever had Tabbouleh of any kind. I have to tell you I am hooked on this raw version. It is so incredibly good. Could it be the addition of cumin, maybe. ;) I love cumin. Really you have to try this even if you think you don't like Tabbouleh I think you should try this, just once. :) Tonight when I made it I was out of broccoli (I used it all in the broccoli soup!) so I just made it without and it was still fantastic.

Raw Tabbouleh Salad
Original recipe can be found here.

3/4 cup of cauliflower(the size of cous cous)
1/2 cup broccoli (the size of cous cous)
1/4 cilantro, chopped
1 Medium Tomato, diced
Juice of half a lemon
1.5 tsp. Cumin(or more to taste)
1 TB Olive Oil
Sea Salt(to taste)
Cayenne(I just used a pinch)
1 big handful baby spinach

I took a sharp knife and sliced from the top down so it would be very small like cous cous. If you have a food processor this may be easier that way. Put Cauliflower (and broccoli if using)in a bowl with cilantro, diced tomato, olive oil, lemon, cumin, sea salt, and cayenne to taste. Let it "marinade" for at least 10 minutes. Chop up spinach and toss with mix.
