Cracked Wheat and Chickpea Salad Recipe
Similar to the Lebanese “tabouli” , this salad combines grains and beans to form a protein quality like that of meat. The addition of greens adds chlorophyll and B vitamins, making this a wonderfully healthy dish.
1 1/2 cups bulgar wheat
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 cup cooked chickpeas, coarsely chopped
1 cup finely chopped green onion
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh mint
1/3-1/2 cup fruity olive oil
2 tablespoons wine vinegar
Rinse bulgar well and mix with water. Let stand till water is absorbed. Drain and press out excess moisture. Mix with remaining ingredients, cover and chill thoroughly before serving.
