Clean Eating/Raw Recipe of the Week: Raw Tabouleh


I get this Tabouleh regularly at my local co-op and it is SO good! I like it even better the second day. Parsley is great for digestion and this is a great way to get a lot in your diet. The added bonus comes from the hempseeds which are full of EFA's and amino acids.


Ingredients:

2 cups tomatoes, seeded and diced
4 cups chopped parsley
1 cup chopped fresh mint
1/2 cup sliced green onion
1/4 cup raw hempseeds
6 Tbs. olive oil
4 Tbs. lemon juice
1 tsp. sea salt

Place the tomatoes in a colander and allow the liquid to drain off. ( I put mine in the colander then set it on a paper towel to absorb the moisture.) In a bowl, combine green onions, parsley and mint and toss together. In a separate bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice and sea salt and whisk. Pour over parsley mixture and mix well. Gently stir in the tomatoes and hemp seeds.
Yum!

Sounds good...could I use basil instead of the mint?

I think the basil would be too strong Liz. The mint really doesn't have a strong flavor in this, it's really yummy! It gets better the second day so just let it marinate overnight : )

love tabouleh and at places like WF's a tiny container pre-made with yucky too strong garlic/onions (for me at least) is sooo expensive. GReat recipe.

And keeping a low(er) profile in the b'sphere, commenting less, is music to my ears, Nicole. Seriously, life is manic enough, the blogs should only add to our lives, not impede us or make us feel enslaved to our computers and at times, I know I need to check myself. After reading your comment today that you were going to read an actual book, I was so happy for you!
