Lentil Tabbouleh

Posted 2017-03-15 by Jac's Vegheadfollow
Traditional tabbouleh is made with cous cous, and while delicious is not all that satisfying. I swapped the cous cous for lentils and this dish is still just as amazing, but is much more satiating, is now gluten free, and packs a nice protein punch. Serve along side [linkhttp://recipeyum.com.au/4-ingredient-hummus/ hummus], pita and salad as you normally would.



The original recipe calls for 4 tablespoons of olive oil. I try to avoid oil as much as possible so did not put any in mine, the choice is yours.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 0-30 minutes
Serves: 4 sides, 2 mains

Ingredients
200 g puy lentils (dry weight)
1 bunch of spring onions
200 g cherry tomatoes
1 bunch of flat-leaf parsley
1 bunch of mint
1 lemon
Extra virgin olive oil (optional)

Method
  • If using dried lentils rinse and cook in lots of salted water until tender. Drain and set aside to cool. If using tinned lentils simple rinse well and pat dry.

  • While the lentils are cooling finely slice the spring onions, cut the tomatoes in half, and finely chop the mint and parsley.

  • Mix the cooled lentils with the spring onions, tomatoes, herbs and oil if using. Pour the lemon juice over the top, season with salt and pepper and toss well.
  • Serve alongside some falafels and [linkhttp://recipeyum.com.au/4-ingredient-hummus/ homemade hummus].
