Tabbouleh is a middle eastern salad consisting of lots of fresh herbs, (parsley and mint) bulgur, tomato, cucumber and is dressed with olive oil and lemon. You will often see tabbouleh having a higher ratio of bulgur to herbs, but traditionally the herbs are the star. This is just my little spin on it, more inspired by tabbouleh than being tabbouleh perhaps. I decided to just slice the tomatoes and plate them up first, and spoon the herb, cucumber and rice mixture on top. Just looks pretty but the tomatoes can always be mixed in. I garnish this with Vegan Feta (I used VioLife brand, it works really well in this recipe) and toasted walnuts. Serve this as a side dish. I like to have other fresh salad offerings and maybe some grilled tofu or veggies along side too. You could always add chickpeas to this recipe black rice tabbouleh too. I was kind of planning on it, then forgot. But it would be good.
