This gluten-free version of classic middle eastern salad is a favorite in out home. Unfortunately, some people are not able to digest or eat wheat so the classic recipe that uses bulgur wheat needs to be adapted. We find this to be so refreshing, especially in the summer when the fresh herbs are so so abundant. It is wonderful to try different varieties of herbs and ingredients.

Getting enough leafy greens can be challenging. Especially when it comes to fresh herbs. There are not always everyone’s favorite flavor owing to their bitterness. However, they have so many health benefits that I think it is wonderful to find recipes where you can eat them regularly. Tabouli is a great option.
If you have the ability, having a small window or patio garden can be a great way to grow these herbs affordably. Each year when they go to seed, there are literally hundreds of new plants that can come from one plant. Plus, they add such a wonderful quality of flavor and nutrients.
The food we eat has a major impact on our health, but the way we prepare it can also have an effect. Eating a diet high in processed foods, sugar, and unhealthy fats can lead to many health problems, such as obesity and heart disease. But what if I told you that changing these factors could make all the difference? Just by cooking your meals with whole food, plant-based ingredients, you can improve your health.
There are so other flavor combinations that could be explored…
Basil + lemon zest
Mint + pomegranate
Thyme + black pepper
Dill + scallion
Parsley + basil
….. or a combination of all of them that appeal to you.

I encourage you to reinvent and change the recipes to suit your palate and interests. In many ways, these recipes could be thought of as building blocks that will help you to create a routine in the kitchen that helps to reduce the decision fatigue that can come up.
