Tabbouleh

Yum


Being a vegan means you've gotta introduce all kinds of meals into your diet if you want to stick to being a vegan. It can be really very discouraging to be one if you are not on the constant seek of something new to try. I am a true foodie and love to eat everyday something different but to be honest, veganism is not at all that popular yet. Yes, there are many of us who chose this lifestyle but the majority of people do not understand why one wouldn't eat dairy products since they are healthy. So eating out can be a little challenging, mainly in Hungary. What's more challenging is to come home to my family in which the men don't consider a meal without a massive amount of meat. Okay, I can always skip the meat part but I need something nutritious to eat, too! And no, I can't eat simple mixed salad all the time as a  a main meal. So I was more than happy when my Mom came home with boxes of bulgur and couscous! Yay, something different! 
Having bulgur at home means tabbouleh, of course! Honestly, I haven't eaten it before and it is so good! It is fresh, loaded with vegetables and complements basically anything perfectly. Let it be fish, meat or grilled vegetables. It is seriously amazing and will be a guest on our plates often. Oh and have I mentioned how easy it is to make? 



Tabbouleh

2 cups bulgur
1 cup chopped parsley
1 cup chopped fresh mint
2 smaller purple onions
5-6 tomatoes
3 cucumbers
1-2 lemons' juice
1,5 dl olive oil
1 chili
salt, pepper, cilantro seeds 

Bring water to a boil and pour about 3 or 4 times as much water on the bulgur. Let it soak up for 15-20 minutes. 

Chop up the parsley, mint, onions, tomatoes and cucumbers into very small pieces.

Mix the lemon juice with the olive oil and spices. Mix it well. 

Strain the now soft bulgur and place it in a big salad bowl. Add the onions, parsley, mint, tomatoes and cucumbers to it. Stir it together. Add the sauce and mix it well. If desired, add more salt.

  2. It's not easy but it's all about what you decide to do. If you want it badly, you will like it! My body LOVES it! It's not like a diet it is a lifestyle so the tough part is when you are with people whom are not vegan. Imagine a get together where all you can eat is pretty much nothing but you can get used to it! I encourage you to go vegan, it is amazing, although I do cheat sometimes :)

  5. The post says that Being a vegan indicates that you've gotta bring in all kinds of meals into your diet if you would like to stick to being a vegan. It can be actually very disappointing to be one if you are not on the steady seeking of something fresh to attempt.
