      I came up with this Couscous Tabbouleh with Fresh Mint & Feta recipe recently when I was craving this Middle Eastern classic salad. Halfway through my meal prep, I realised I had all the ingredients to make a classic tabbouleh except for one – bulgar wheat. Luckily I had couscous at hand so I substituted it and do you know what? I think I prefer my version now!

      Tabbouleh is a traditional vegetarian Lebanese dish – it is full of fresh zingy flavors like parsley and mint. You could easily omit the feta cheese and make this recipe vegan if you like.
