What kind of dish is this?
This is a Lebanese salad that is simple, healthy and delicious.
Basically, it can be made just by adding parsley, tomato, onion, mint and bulgur with lemon and olive oil.
→ A name derived from the Arabic word for a mixture of vegetables.
In Lebanon and Syria there is a “qadb”, an herb that has been eaten since 3000 BC and is the basis of Middle Eastern cuisine.
Eating this herb with bulgur was the beginning of Tabbouleh.
This way of eating began in the days of Mamluk Sultanate (1250-1517) in Bekaa Valley in Lebanon and Syria.
※Although there is no clear record, considering the history of wheat cultivation, the theory that it started at this place at this time is influential.
Eventually it became known around the world through immigrants, and in the 20th century it was recognized as one of Lebanon’s leading dishes.
By the way, this dish does not use meat, so it seems that some people resisted at that time.
I didn’t expect much because no meat was used.
But when I try it, it ’s really delicious.😎
The fragrance and texture of herbs and bulgur were in harmony, and I was absorbed in eating.
It is a dish that has great health benefits in addition to delicious food.
It is a combination of nutrient-rich vegetables such as parsley and also nutrient-rich bulgur.
It may be difficult to get bulgur in some countries, but if you have the chance, try it.
It’s surprisingly easy and delicious, and can be stored for days.
