Bulgur Tabbouleh, an easy authentic tabbouleh recipe with bulgur, fresh herbs like parsley and mint, and lemon. A simple grain and parsley salad recipe!




  1. Put dry bulgur into a bowl and pour boiling water over it until water is 2 inches above bulgur. Let soak for about 45 minutes to one hour, or until bulgur has soaked up most of the water and is soft to the touch. Drain and squeeze in a cheesecloth or small hand towel to remove extra water.
  2. Toss bulgur, parsley, onion, mint, and allspice in a large mixing bowl (add tomatoes and cucumber, if using). Drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice and stir to combine.
  3. Add salt to taste and enjoy!
