Parsley, my love. So refreshing. So full of iron. So underrated and under-utilized. Enter tabbouleh, the queen of all herb salads. I mean, count on a classic Middle Eastern dish to bring us such ingenious use for fresh herbs.
I used a corn couscous, which was pretty good but the grain takes a backseat to the star – parsley! You might use any small grain or seed you think is delicious, like quinoa or the traditional bulgur, if you’re not looking for a gluten-free option. Goes perfectly with my edamame falafel, chickpea and cumin salad or even just a piece of pita bread!
Preparation time: 5 minutes
1/2 cup gluten-free couscous, cooked and cooled
