Mediterranean cuisine quickly became my favorite style when I stopped eating meat. So many of the main dishes are naturally vegan making it very easy to eat with carnivors and the like. Tabouli is something that I find refreshing and I get so excited about putting all that raw parsley into my body. It is insanely high in Vitamin K, A, & C and is loaded with anti-aging antioxidents. In addition it is a very cleansing herb and generally available year round. It is thought to help prevent against Rheumatoid Arthritis and keeps your heart healthy. Parsley is a good source of folic acid, one of the most important B vitamins. Although it plays many roles in the body, cardivascular health is a honorable mention. I love love love eating this stuff knowing how good it is for me, and the fact that it taste delicious- B O N U S.
This recipe for Tabouli calls for a hint of mint- it adds a touch of sweetness that takes it to the next level. Trust me. And lets be honest, the recipe for tabouli is pretty much the same no matter where you go, but by adding a handful of fresh mint you will surprise your guests as they have never had tabouli like this before. Ever. Ok, well maybe. But add the mint when you make this, ok? Ok!

Rinse the herbs extremely well and pat dry. Then, prepare all your ingredients as stated above. My cups of herbs were loosely packed and I removed the seeds and liquid from the tomato. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
