Jerusalem Cafe. I have enjoyed eating there for many years. I have always loved the Tabbouleh, it is so good. The thing I really enjoy about the food is that it is real home cooking.
When I first starting eating there about 15 years ago, Mom and Dad cooked, in the first little spot in downtown Vancouver. Now the different cafes are run by family members, and even with Mom and Dad retired it is the same food and just like home.
The tabbouleh is big on vegetables with lots of parsley and lemon. Also it is made with whole wheat couscous, instead of Bulgar. But today I will (try to) translate my love of their tabbouleh into this recipe for Quinoa Tabbouleh.
by the seat of my pants!
2-3 c cooked Quinoa
1 bunch green onions, cleaned and sliced through 2 inches of the green section
1 bunch parsley, washed, shook dry and chopped
juice of 1/2 lemon*
1- 2 T minced fresh mint - optional
olive oil to moisten, up to 1/4 c
1/2 t salt
Combine gently, chill until serving time. Enjoy.
* if you enjoy the tang of lemon, use the whole lemon.
thanks so much for stopping by!
