Here's the recipe for the awesome tabouli Kristin prepared for us at this Tuesday's work day, compliments of Caroline from Frankie Lappe’s "Diet for a Small Planet."

TABOULI (Zesty Lebanese Salad)

1. Pour 4 cups boiling water over 1 1/4 cups raw bulgur (cracked wheat) in a bowl. Let stand covered, about an hour, until light and fluffy. To remove excess water, shake in a strainer and squeeze with hands.

2. Combine Cooked Bulgur with

3/4 cup garbanzo beans, cooked or canned, rinsed and drained

1 1/2 cups fresh, minced parsley

3/4 cup fresh minced mint

3/4 cup chopped or sliced scallions

3 medium tomatoes chopped

1/2 cup (or more) lemon juice

1/4 cup olive oil

1 tsp salt (or to taste)

Freshly ground pepper to taste

3. Chill at least one hour. Serve on raw grape, lettuce or cabbage leaves.
