The late afternoon sun peers through the window, over the cutting boards spread out across the counter. Conversations flow as a feast begins to emerge from the camaraderie of the kitchen.
On the counter sits the bouquets of fresh parsley and mint, woven between plump tomatoes and bright green limes. Green onions sit by the sink, waiting to be washed and finely diced, as the cracked wheat soaks in the basin. After hours of preparation, these ingredients are gathered and tossed with olive oil, salt, and a dash of sumac, and brought to the table.
Tabbouleh sparks fast banter that darts in between the lulls in conversation, seamlessly rouses your tastebuds. Whether you’re eating at a restaurant in Scarborough with friends, or whether your grandmother is animatedly telling a story, hands green from preparing the refreshing plate. Tabbouleh is not just a salad. It’s an fragrant pile of mint and parsley, fuelled with the sourness of lemons and tomatoes, then conquered by the cucumber’s freshness - finally sprinkled with cracked wheat. A fantastic deal for both heat in the Mediterranean or winter months in Scarborough.
There are a great many ways to make this dish; the video above is simply one version. If you search YouTube, you may find several from which to choose.
