Can you really beat a classic tabbouleh? Bursting with freshness and flavour, it’s a perfect dish to have all year round.




200g of cous cous (or quinoa), cooked and cooled

A handful of fresh parsley, flat or curly leaf, finely shredded

The juice of 2 lemons

A good drizzle of olive oil

1/2 a teaspoon of cracked black pepper

1/2 tsp of garlic powder

A scattering of sumac

1 tsp of traditional sea salt

1/2 a cucumber, finely diced and chilled

2 large tomatoes, finely diced and chilled

2 spring onions, finely sliced

A scattering of chilli flakes (optional)




  1. In a large mixing bowl mix all the ingredients together and toss gently, being mindful to not bruise the cous cous too much,
  2. Taste for seasoning and arrange on a large serving platter and scatter extra sumac, chilli flakes and additional garnishes like fresh mint, lemon slices and edible flowers. Enjoy!
