    I have a nice recipe for tabbouleh….that is parsley salad in lay terms…I’ve been making it all summer. Serve with hummus and some grilled pita bread and you have quite a healthy meal!

    1 cup medium bulgur
    2 cups boiling water
    Cover with inverted plate and let stand for 30 minutes. Drain in seive, pressing with the back of a large spoon to remove excess moisture.

    In a bowl add bulgur and:
    4 large ripe tomatoes- finely chopped
    2 cups fresh parsley sprigs – chopped
    1 cup fresh mint sprigs – chopped
    1 bunch scallions/spring onions – chopped
    1 medium onion – chopped
    Stir in:
    1/2 tsp. allspice
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
    Whisk together:
    1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
    1/3 cup olive oil
    Add to the bulgur mixture and toss to coat. Serve at room temperature 🙂

    Hummus ( using Eden or any organic canned chick peas)
    Rinse one 16 oz. can of chick peas and drain
    Put them in in a food processor or blender
    1/3 cup lemon juice
    3 T tahini
    2 cloves garlic, finely minced
    salt to taste
    Puree until smooth, adding 2-3 T of water if needed for a soft creamy texture.
    Remove to a shallow bowl and garnish with:
    1 T olive oil
    1 T finely chopped parsley
    Sprinkling of paprika
    Serve with warm pita bread 🙂

    I love the Dirtbox! You grow food after my heart and palate. Only wish I lived a little closer so that I could be one of your customers. We have Cal football and Berkeley Repertory Theater season tickets and visit Berkeley almost weekly at this time of the year. Each time we swing by Berkeley Bowl on Shattuck Ave. and stock up on good bread, fruit and produce. Not quite the same as shopping from Alix’ & Nadine’s Dirtbox but an approximation that will have to do until we visit Portland again. Keep on growing!
