As Slim-Fast dieters only be able to eat one real meal every day, it is essential that this one food per day is captivating and appetising. Otherwise, we suspect that most people wouldn’t last long!
In this second in a new series of articles we review another of these 31 recipes – Roasted Vegetable Tabbouleh Greens ( an image of which is included in this review).
Method for this recipe.
Note that the following makes 4 helpings of the salad. When cooked, the salad will not keep particularly well if you are preparing food for less than 4 people, I therefore suggest reducing the quantities proportionately.
Put the kettle on to boil and preheat the oven to 230 degrees celcius.
Next, place 300g of bulgur whole wheat in a bowl (couscous would be a good substitute, even though the taste would be less “nutty”) and cover with the boiling water – this particular needs to be no more than 1cm above the level of the bulgur wheat.
After that weigh an overall total of 800g of summertime vegetables – a mix of several of the pursuing would be good: courgettes, tomatoes, aubergines, red onion, red pepper, yellow tear gas, butternut squash. Remove the seeds from the red pepper and squash (if using) and then cut all the vegetables into small dice.
Place the cut vegetables into an oven-proof dish along with a tiny glug of oil and a sprinkling of sodium and pepper make the dish in the the oven – we suggest by using a wide dish so the fruit and vegetables are spread in a thin layer.
Once the vegetables have been preparing food for around a quarter-hour, take the dish away of the oven and give it a mix. Then add 1 tablespoon of cumin seeds and 1 teaspoon of coriander seeds together with around 80g of pinenuts. Mix, and put back in the oven.
After about 5 more minutes the vegetables should be young – test with a sharp knife. If not as yet ready, simply put again another 5 minutes.
When ever the vegetables are prepared, add them (and their cooking juices) to the bulgur wheat combined with 2 tablespoons of balsamic apple cider vinegar. Mix well and provide.
My judgment of the formula.
I remember the first time I ate Tabbouleh – I used to be sitting outdoors a castle in Syria, it involved 100 deg celcius, sunlight was shining and everything was good with the earth since I actually was just aiming on my first around the world trip.
The second time I ate Tabbouleh, I was during my toned in England (I got by that point, regrettably, returned to working in London). The person preparing food the Tabbouleh was being with my via Couchsurfing, and was born and bred in Lebanese. This individual was following his mom’s recipe.
These two dishes of Tabbouleh were memorable for all the right reasons – the perfect balance of oil and citrus juice, the bite from some finely diced red onion, masses and people of fresh parsley, and beautifully-textured bulghur wheat.
Sadly, this Slim-Fast version is a tragic variation of what is, rightly for me, a classic dish. We would be ashamed phoning this Tabbouleh. It basically. Frankly, I don’t what it is. I certainly wouldn’t cook it again.
