Soak the Bulgur Wheat

To make Tabbouleh with bulgur wheat, first soak the bulgur in boiling water for an hour. This is part of the process. While the bulgur soaks, I like to prep all my veggies and herbs. Then, you literally just toss everything together and start eating.

Ideally, you should chill the Bulgur Tabbouleh salad so the flavors can blend. I, regrettably, never manage to wait that long.

Nothing makes me happier than pairing the tabbouleh with hummus, pita chips, lettuce, and olives. Feta if I have it. It’s basically a gorgeous, delicious Mediterranean Feast right there in front of you. Even my kids dig in!

I also have a recipes for Cauliflower Tabbouleh and Quinoa Tabbouleh. The are just as delicious and make a perfect gluten-free option! All of these tabbouleh recipes are vegan, too. Couscous Tabbouleh is next on my list.

Recipe Notes

Do not substitute flat parsley. It's too wet and flat and will drag down the salad.
