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. The black rice is striking, and makes for a visually appealing side dish if you want to impress.
I decided to slice the tomatoes and plate them around the rice for the visual appeal. Mix them in if you want to.
I garnish this with Vegan Feta (I used VioLife brand, it works really well in this recipe) and toasted walnuts. This particular brand of vegan feta is really rich and creamy. I don't think every vegan feta would do what I want it to do in this dish. Alternatively, I would just drizzle more olive oil over top.
