Couscous Tabbouleh

by Rogerio Callegari
Couscous Tabbouleh

      Couscous tabbouleh is popular throughout France. In summer, add a pound of finely chopped tomatoes to the mix. Our Italian Couscous by Cordero is perfect. Try it with fish, chicken or by itself. Create magic in your kitchen! This is a recipe I found at the NYT and it is by the wonderfully talented Martha Rose Schulman.  This beautiful picture is by Andrew Scrivani for the NYT.

  • YIELD Serves four to six
  • TIME 45 minutes, plus refrigeration

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup couscous
  • Salt to taste
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 cup warm water
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • ¼ cup finely chopped mint
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 small cucumber, diced
  • Small romaine lettuce leaves for scoops

PREPARATION

  1. Put the couscous in a glass or ceramic bowl, and toss with the salt and cumin. Mix together 1/4 cup of the lemon juice and the water, and pour over the couscous. Let sit for 30 minutes, stirring the mixture from time to time or rubbing between your fingers and thumbs to prevent it from lumping. Cover with a plate, and microwave on 100 per cent power for one minute; or line a steamer with a kitchen towel, place the couscous in it and steam for 10 minutes. Carefully remove the plate, or remove from the steamer, and return to the bowl. Stir in the remaining lemon juice and the olive oil, and allow to cool. Toss with the remaining ingredients, except the lettuce leaves. Taste and adjust seasonings. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve, using the romaine lettuce leaves as scoopers.

Tip

  • Advance preparation: The salad will hold for several hours in the refrigerator.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
