Hello friends and fellow foodies!!
Today I bring you a fully vegetarian recipe.
My mom is a very adventurous and creative cook. Since very young we learned to eat all types of rare vegetables and foreign recipes. Our table was always rich in colors and flavors.
One of her “phases” was Arabic food. So we ate lots of whole wheat, “quipes” (Kibbeh), wraps, etc. One of her most famous recipes is this of “Tipile” (Tabbouleh)
A few days ago I was telling an Arabic student about my mom’s recipe and she helped me correct it. I have added some personal details as well. (Thanks to Nauel)
- 2 lbs. #1 whole wheat
- 1 large ripe tomato.
- 1 red onion.
- 1 cubanela pepper
- 1 red bell pepper.
- 1 bush (a package) of parsley.
- 1 bush of mint.
- 1 leave coriander.
- The juice of one lemon
- The juice of one sour orange.
- A generous amount of extra virgin olive oil.
- Salt to taste.
Wash the wheat, chop everything very small and mix well, add the sour juices and the olive oil. The longer you let it rest the more it marinates. As it’s a matter of taste, allow it 15 minutes and move from there.
It’s a delicious salad and it takes very long to go bad.
It generally goes well with pita bread, but even by itself it’s great!
Hope you enjoy your weekend!
