Rice Tabbouleh recipe

Share the love :)


Last week I was telling you about my Forks Over Knives cooking class and I posted a picture of a salad I made with chopped vegetables. It was part of an assignment where we are sharpening our knife skills and I spent a few hours practicing by dicing veggies of different textures. In the end I was left with a very colorful but giant bowl of chopped zucchini, tomatoes, cucumbers and green onions.

Unit 2 - Zucchini

Unit 2 - Tomato

I got an 83% on my knife skills test- my dices weren’t uniform. A lot of people, it seems, failed this assignment so I am kinda happy with my grade.

Unit 2 - Green Onion

The course instructors provided us with a recipe to use all those veggies and many of you asked for it. I changed it up a little- here is my adaptation of their recipe:

Rice Tabbouleh

This is such a fun class, isn't it? What group on you in? I am in the animal lovers group I think.
