3. CauliRice Tabbouleh Bowl

This CauliRice Tabbouleh Bowl by Taryn Fitz-Gerald is a traditional Tabbouleh. Cauliflower is such a versatile cruciferous vegetable. It’s great to use as rice in this dish and is super nutritious! The trick with this cauliflower rice tabbouleh, is to try to get the cauliflower as dry as possible because slight moisture will lead to a soggy result. After rinsing and processing, place into a clean tea towel and squeeze out any excess water. Since cauliflower doesn’t really have that much flavor, the fresh herbs and hint of heat from the chilli really rounds off the dish well. The lime also compliments all the unique flavors and the creamy avocado is the perfect subtle move to even out and tie all of the elements together. This cauliflower rice tabbouleh is the perfect balance of light and filling. It’s the perfect healthy summer meal! Enjoy!

This Buckwheat and Avocado Tabbouleh by Rita Marie makes it to the next level. Traditional tabbouleh has bulgur, tomatoes, onions, tons of parsley, mint, and a little bit of lettuce if you feel so inclined to get your greens in. This recipe kind of branches off by adding avocados, cucumber, chia, and flax, and substitutes buckwheat for bulgur. This recipe is reminiscent to tabbouleh only in the sense that it has all the delicious flavors of the original with even more healthy greens.
