Yes, I have been away from the blog for a while… nothing happened it is just summer and I don’t want to sit in front of the computer after work too. We usually go out, meet friends, have picnic in a park or stay at home, cook a light dinner for us, drink wine and read good books. So this is the reason I’m a bit behind on the blog.
The good news is I have so many recipes to share with you! Here is the first one… tabuleh is one of my favourite summer dishes. I made this to my best friend, Eva’s hen night party. Eva is a HR specialist but in her free time she writes amazing fables and short stories. We had so much fun together at the party, we laughed a lot, shared old stories with each other and danced through the night. Friends are the most important ingredients in this recipe of life. Let’s see the ingredients of this tabuleh…
Ingredients (serves 8)
– 12 bunches of parsley, chopped
– 1 small bunch of mint, chopped
– 200 g bulgur
– 500 g tomatoes, finely diced
– 1 bunch of spring onion, chopped
– 30 ml extra virgin olive oil
– 25 ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
– salt, pepper
In a small pan mix the bulgur with salted water. Bring to the boil, cover then turn the heat on very low and cook for 15 minutes. Fluff with a fork to separate the grains and set aside. In a large bowl mix everything together: parsley, mint, tomatoes, spring onion, olive oil and lemon juice. Add bulgur, taste it and season with salt and pepper. Add more olive oil or lemon juice if needed. Place the bowl in the fridge and leave it there for at least 2 hours (the best is a for a night).
