  • Summary

    Nothing says "garden fresh" like a handful of aromatic herbs, and while you may be tempted to take bulgur down the well-traveled tabbouleh road, a little deviation can be an excellent thing. In this case, cilantro steps up to the plate, replacing parsley (typical of tabbouleh) and adding distinct flavor to an already intoxicating amount of mint. Toasting almonds in olive oil and then adding both to the mix enhances the nuttiness of the whole grain.

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup bulgur
    • 2 cups boiling-hot water
    • 2 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
    • 1 cup chopped scallions (from 1 bunch)
    • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
    • 1/2 cup chopped mint
    • 1 tablespoon store-bought roasted-almond oil or olive oil
    • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice, or to taste
