Mom-Is-Sick Tabouleh



I have a cold. A good, old fashioned cold.

Everyone else seems to have some sniffles and coughing. I was laid out for two days wondering if it was the flu.

So, besides saturation levels of Vitamin C, I have also had to feed the family actual FOOD. And when you feel like crap, you feel like cutting corners. Thus, today's recipe. I give to you -

Mom-Is-Sick Tabouleh


Cook 3 cups dry brown rice according to package directions, if you can see through your watery eyes post-sneezing (which makes this bad boy gluten free - the rice, not the sneezing)

Then, in a blender/Vitamix/food processor, throw in the following:

All the leaves off a bunch of fresh parsley
A bunch of fresh mint
One onion, quartered (or more, depending on how well your appliance pulverizes)
2 pints cherry tomatoes
6 TB olive oil
6 TB lemon juice
salt & pepper to taste

Blend the bageebiz out of it. Pour it over the rice and stir well.

Boom. No chopping. Make Ask one of your kids to remove the parsley leaves. Throw crackers on a plate. Make Ask another kid to heat up the leftover soup from the day before when you were in your Nyquil coma.

LUNCH! Or dinner! Or breakfast! You don't know. You're sick. But it's food and actually quite delish.

I make a similar rice, but never thought about adding mint! I'm doing it! It sounds delicious!
