In Genesis 1:29, God gave Adam and Eve "every seed-bearing plant all over the earth and every tree that has seed-bearing fruit" to be their food. Our bodies were designed for plant-based foods - that's one of the reasons I've decided to try veganism, a diet without animal products. I'm excited to announce that for at least one week I will be vegan and will document and share my journey with you!
I made a big bowl of tabouli on Sunday night and popped it in the refrigerator for the week to come. On Monday I topped my refrigerated tabouli on steaming spaghetti noodles. Quite possibly the most refreshing and delicious spaghetti I have ever had, Tabolui-topped-spaghetti is a tantalising and fresh spring or summer lunch!
I followed a delicious recipe from here:
THE BEST TABOUlI
2 cups fine bulgar
2 cups boiling water
1 bunch green onion
1 medium onion
1 bunch parsley, stems removed, chopped finely
1 bunch fresh mint leaves, chopped finely
2 large tomatoes, chopped.
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar (I used freshly squeezed lemon juice instead!)
salt and paper
dash of cayenne pepper (optional)
Add the rest of the ingredients one at a time, mixing well. Refrigerate and toss before serving.
NUTRITION: Parsley is an excellent source of iron; the Vitamin C in lemon juice heightens the absorption of iron. Olive oil is great for your skin and an excellent source of Vitamin E, A, and essential fatty acids (Omega 3 and 6).
