Tabbouleh with Grilled Vegetables

Grilled vegetables add a layer of rich, complex flavors to the popular Middle Eastern salad of bulgur and herbs. Serve with whole-wheat pita bread or use as a sandwich filling.

Serves 8

Prep Time 45 min

Total Time 60 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup bulgur
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 medium zucchini, cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick slabs
  • 2 sweet onions, such as Vidalia, cut into 1/2-inch-thick rounds
  • 3 large portobello mushroom caps, wiped clean
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 3 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh mint

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Place bulgur and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add boiling water and stir. Cover with plastic wrap and let soak until tender and liquid has been absorbed, about 30 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, preheat grill to medium-high. Place a fine-mesh nonstick grill topper on the grill to heat.

Step 3

Place zucchini, onions, portobellos and tomatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet. Brush both sides with 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Working in batches, grill the vegetables until tender, turning once or twice. Allow 8 to 10 minutes for zucchini and onions, 6 to 8 minutes for mushrooms, and 2 to 3 minutes for tomatoes.

Step 4

Toast walnuts in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. When the vegetables are cool enough to handle, coarsely chop the zucchini, onions and mushrooms. Cut the tomatoes in half.

Step 5

When the bulgur is tender, add the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, lemon juice, parsley and mint; toss to mix. Add the vegetables and toss. Sprinkle with walnuts.
