miscellaneous | Mommy Morgan's tabbouleh

Serves 2-4

My mum scribbled this recipe for me on the back of a piece of thin cardboard years ago! And now that mint seems to growing in my garden like wild-fire, at last, I can cook more of it! You can make it more lemony if you want to. The original version is with bulgar wheat, but you can use rice or quinoa if you can't eat wheat.

Wheat free, dairy free, nut free, meat free version...



  1. Cook the rice or quinoa and stir in the cucumber, herbs and tomatoes.
  2. Shake the oil and lemon together and pour over.
  3. Leave to infuse for a good 30 minutes or more.

Maybe serve with...

Serve with crunchy lettuce leaves - to scoop the mixture into. Or, you could serve in scooped out beef tomatoes, roasted halves of scooped out aubergine or roasted red peppers.

For those who can eat sheep's cheese...

Add small cubes of feta to the mix or serve with black olive, rocket and cherry tomato salad.

For those able to eat fish ...

Lovely with pan fried or baked fish

For those able to eat wheat...

Use I cup of fine bulgur wheat or cous cous instead of rice or quinoa.

For those who can eat meat...

Easily served with chicken/bacon/ham salad-type dishes.

If you have rice or quinoa leftover, see the mango pepper boats, bean chilli, Mediterranean skewers, nude squash, simple ratatouille, chicken parcels, multipurpose salmon, chicken and tarragon, coconut spiced pork or lamb and seared lamb
