thinking about lunch

Hey Everyone
It is 11:28 am and my mind is on food. Forget about SEO, websites and all that stuff (at least for a moment). This weekend, I made the most delicious, simple Tabouleh and now that summer is upon us, I thought I would share this fresh, hi-fiber dish:

1 1/4 cup Trader Joe’s whole wheat couscous (or medium grain bulgur)
1/2 cup boiling water
1/3 cup lemon juice
5 tablespoons olive oil
1 bunch roughly chopped parsley
1 bunch roughly chopped mint
2-3 firm Roma tomatoes, chopped
diced onion to taste
salt and pepper to taste

Add boiling water to couscous and stir. Add the lemon juice and olive oil, stir again and let sit for 5 minutes. Couscous should be easily fluffed with a fork. Add remaining ingredients, stir and refrigerate.

So fresh… off to lunch! Enjoy! MO
