As I told you before, I visited Turkey nad greec a lot in my younger years. While I like most of the food served there, up until today I love tabbouleh/kisir/however-you-want-to-call-it, most. I like it so much that I searched for years for a form of couscous/bulgur my boyfriend likes, because he hated the grainy texture. There is no better food on hot summer days!

Kisir
  • 1 cup bulgur
  • 3 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1 cucumber, peeled and chopped
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 3 or more (I like 5, but I'm a garlic fiend) cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup olive oil

Directions

  1. Place cracked wheat in bowl and cover with 2 cups boiling water. Soak for 30 minutes; drain and squeeze out excess water.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the wheat, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, garlic, parsley,salt, lemon juice, and olive oil. Toss and refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving. Toss again prior to serving.
  3. For Kisir add a tablespoon of tomato puree.
