Refreshing! Looking into my mother’s fridge yesterday, I found a little store-bought container of tabouleh. I looked at the ingredient list and replicated the recipe, tasting to find good proportions, and substituting quinoa sprouts for the cooked buckwheat traditionally used in tabouleh. Do make sure you wash the mint especially throroughly, and only use the leaves, as it has little hairs on it that can irritate one’s mouth. The ingredient list indicated that alspice is usually used, but since I didn’t have any non-irradiated alspice on hand, I didn’t include this in my version. I do encourage you to try it with alspice and let me know how it goes!
Absolutely delicious! I tossed this together on a creative whim as a take-to-school lunch for my companion, who is a middle school music teacher. I included a bag of celery sticks in case he felt like eating it as a dip.
