Seeing the amazing amount of greenery that comes with the carrots, i just couldn’t toss it into the compost or the trash… Being in favor of waste not want not, I was on a mission to find a way to use them.
I read a recipe and realized they were very similar to parsley – well wow!
Woot – time for tabouli!
1 cup bulgur wheat
1 cup boiling water
1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp lemon juice
generous pinch of salt
1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup chopped cucumber
1 cup chopped tomato
1/2 cup chopped scallion green and white part (optional)
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
1/4 cup finely chopped mint
1/4 cup finely chopped carrot tops
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
In a large bowl combine bulgur wheat with boiling water, 1 tbsp lemon juice, salt, and 1 tbsp olive oil. Cover and allow to rest for 30-60 minutes or until bulgur absorbs all liquid.
Combine remaining ingredients with bulgur, toss well.
Will keep in fridge for 5 days.
