Tabouli Stuffed Avocado


• 1/3 cup dry Lifestyle Food Bulgar Wheat
• 1/3 cup dry Lifestyle Food Whole-Wheat Couscous
• 4 bunches of flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
• 1 cup mint leaves, chopped
• 1/4 –1/2 cup dill, chopped (optional)
• 3 medium tomatoes, diced small (3 cups)
• 1–2 cucumbers, diced (optional)
• 4 spring onion, sliced (or 1 cup red or white onion- finely diced)
• 1 tablespoon lemon zest
• 1/3 cup lemon juice, more to taste
• 1/2 cup olive oil
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 teaspoon “7-Spice” (or sub 1/2 teaspoon allspice and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon)
• 2 ripe avocados

7 Spice:

1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon cardamom


  1. If using medium grain bulgar and couscous pour 1/2 cup warm water over the bulgar wheat
    in a small bowl. Cover with a plate, set aside. If using fine bulgar wheat, you can toss it right
    in the salad at the end (the same with the couscous ).
  2. If making the 7 spice– mix all the spices together in a small bowl.
  3. Chop the parsley as finely as you can, and some thin stems are ok to include. Place in a
    large bowl. You’ll need about 7 cups chopped.
  4. Chop the mint and optional dill.
  5. Dice the tomatoes finely, place in the bowl along with all their juices. Chop the cucumber and onion
    and place in the bowl.
  6. Add the bulgar wheat and the couscous, it should be al dente. Toss all to mix well. Add the
    lemon zest, lemon juice, olive oil, Salt and 1 teaspoon 7-spice. Give a good stir.
  7. Place in the fridge for 1-3 hours and allow the flavors to melt together. The parsley will soften
    and lose any bitterness, and the bulgar and couscous will soak up the flavorful juices,
  8. Before serving, give a stir and taste for salt and lemon. Adjust both to your liking, along with
    the spices.
  9. Slice the avocados in the middle, remove the pit, dip in the sesame seeds. Scoop in the
    tabouli salad and enjoy with toasted pita bread, hummus baba ganoush, and falafels.
