Easy Tabouleh with couscous & corriander
I like this as it is easy to prepare and I can make extra couscous for the kids that don't like the salad.
1 Bunch Mint
½ Bunch Parsley
¼ Bunch Coriander
¼ Small finely chopped onion or few spring onions
½ Lebanese Cucumber
3 Roma Tomatoes seeds removed
1 Cup couscous
2 Chicken Stock Cubes and 1/2 Liter boiling water or 1/2 liter stock
(Edit)That should have been half a liter liquid.
Extra Water if needed depending on the brand of couscous
½ Lemon Juiced
½ Lime Juiced
Oil (Olive or other salad oil)
Prepare couscous with the hot water or stock, fluff up with a fork and leave to cool down to room temperature.
Chop all herbs and vegetables.
Mix everything together, adjust lemon juice, lime juice & oil according to your own taste then refrigerate till needed.
i like your foto and all those colors
your recipe is very good my friend, and very healthy as i can see. I suggest not not use other oil exept extra virgin (Greek) olive oil.Anyway i have toi ask you what is Roma tomatoes?
roma tomato is a long meaty variety of tomato, not too many seeds, when ripe they are full of rich flavour. A lot of places sell them when they have not been ripened properly before picking which can be disappointing. They should be that rich tomato colour and firm with a little give not hard to touch.
This web address to the seed catalogue should help.

that last bit should read tomato-roma/
my favourite oil is macadamia nut oil, but it is not good in this one, I really don't care for olive oil as much as other people do, though it is supposed to be so good for you.
