Tabbouli used to be my go-to vegan Middle Eastern dish, aside from Hummus of course. That was until I went gluten-free. Since then I've been passing up on this tasty dish traditionally made with bulgar wheat.
Until NOW! Thanks to our happy little hippie seed, Mr. Hemp
Hemp seeds are a stellar superfood. A great source of fiber, hemp also touts an excellent 3:1 ratio of omega-3s to omega-6s! It is also packed with some serious nutrition including a host of minerals, vitamins, plus all the essential amino acids, making it a complete source of protein. Hemp seeds are great for heart healthy, good for digestion, skin conditions, and for balancing hormones. They also add just the perfect crunchy texture to this super easy to make tabouli recipe.
Superfood Tabouli (raw, vegan, gluten-free)
- 1 cup cucumbers, diced
- 2 cups tomatos, diced

This super fresh salad not only is tasty, but takes almost no-time to prepare. So next time you are in the mood for some Middle Eastern cuisine, don't forget to whip up some tabouli to go with that hummus.
