What is Lentil Tabouli?

Have you tried tabouli salad (also known as tabbouleh) before? If you haven’t yet, you’re in for a treat! Tabouli is a classic Lebanese salad made with fresh and flavorful herbs and veggies. 

Traditionally tabouli is made with bulgur wheat which is a gluten containing grain. But in this recipe, I’m sharing a version that substitutes red lentil for bulgur.  This colorful red lentil salad is a winner! Vegan + gluten free.
