Couscous Tabbouleh

Servings: 6
Total Time: 2 1/2 hours
Recipe by: Frankie


1 cup pearl couscous
2 cups vegetable broth
2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 cucumber, peeled, seeded and chopped
1/4 cup diced red onion
1 red bell pepper, diced
1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley or 1 TBSP dried parsley
2 TBSP fresh chopped mint
3 TBSP lemon juice
2 TBSP olive oil
salt and pepper


1. Add the couscous and broth in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring often, until most liquid is absorbed. Take off the heat, cover and set aside.

2. In a large bowl combine the tomatoes, cucumber, onion, and bell pepper. Stir in the couscous.

3. In a small bowl whisk together the lemon juice and oil and pour over the couscous mixture. Toss gently to combine.

4. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to allow flavors to meld.

5. Stir in parsley and mint. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve.
