It happens more times than I can count that my new favorite recipes are ones thrown together on the fly with what’s on hand. Add this Winter Tabbouleh to the list.
A friend sent a message Thursday night inviting us to come to a “Friendsgiving” get-together on Friday before everyone heads out of town or hosts incoming family next week. We were instructed to bring a dish to share, and as soon as I read the note, I knew what sort of dish I wanted to bring.
I’ve been spying some gorgeous cold weather tabbouleh-style recipes in recent weeks, notably at Simmer&Boil, Food 52, Cookie&Kate, and GreenKitchenStories. So much beauty, deliciousness and inspiration from these gorgeous blogs! I knew I had sweet potatoes, a bag of freekeh (one of Bob’s Red Mill’s new offerings) and a pomegranate on hand, so I pulled together my own winter tabbouleh.
This looks like fall/winter on plate, yes? A great side for Thanksgiving later this week :). It was a big hit at Friendsgiving!
