    A fantastic gluten-free and vegetarian side dish. Buckwheat is tossed with fresh herbs, red onion, cucumber and tomatoes in a cumin-spiced dressing.

    This recipe is similar to an authentic tabbouleh, but I like to spice it up a little with cumin and cayenne pepper! It's very versatile. I also like to include red onion and peppers. Try it and see what you think.

    This Arabian tabbouleh is as authentic as you can get! It's a compilation of recipes I've taken from my mother, mother-in-law and grandmother. This recipe tastes even better the next day, so don't hesitate to make it the day before your guests arrive.

    This tabbouleh salad has only simple ingredients and flavours yet is the perfect dish to eat by itself or with meat.

    This tabbouleh recipe is different. Instead of using bulgur like traditional tabbouleh, this recipe uses quinoa. It is a grain that is available at health shops. It looks and tastes better than bulgur. My husband and I both love this and neither of us is vegetarian. It's a great meal for a hot summer day. The longer it sits the better it tastes.

    In this Middle Eastern-style salad, bulghur wheat and crisp colourful salad ingredients are tossed with a generous quantity of chopped fresh herbs and a light lemony dressing, then served with succulent pieces of lean lamb. It's the perfect dish for a relaxed meal. Serve with toasted wholemeal pitta triangles and plain yogurt.

    A slightly different take on the traditional tabbouleh. This recipe includes cannellini beans and spinach. The salad is light and refreshing, perfect for a warm summer night. Garnish with feta cheese and olives.

    A very filling lunch or side dish. Plus it's gluten and dairy-free. Cooking the onion and garlic is optional, especially if you opt to use red onion. Minced red chilli peppers also work well in this dish.
