Great recipe. Simple, easy, tasty.

Very good, quick and simple, went well with Easy Chicken Gyros from this site.

Best tabbouleh I've ever eaten...and I live in LA where there is Mediterranean food everywhere. Truly delicious.

This was very simple and delicious. I was looking for dishes to serve my nephew, niece and her husband who are vegan and they loved it. The fragrance and flavor of the mint was outstanding.

I like to soak my grain in chicken broth for added flavor, and I use about the same about of fresh parsley as grain to add even more nutrition, as if it needs more of that! Great stuff!
