Important tip before we start: Make sure the ingredients are fresh and that you chop the vegetables as small as humanly possible.

  • 3 finely sliced spring onions
  • ½ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ½ cup olive oil

How to Make Tabouli:

  1. Cover the burghul wheat with boiling water and let it stand for about 15-20 minutes until all the water is absorbed.
  2. Add to the wheat all other above ingredients.
  3. Mix well until it looks similar to the picture I added.
