This pearl barley tabbouleh has lots of herbs including parsley and mint. It’s more filling than the classic version because of the grains.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup pearl barley
  • 11/4 cups water
  • 1/2 pint grape tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced cucumbers
  • 1/2 cup parsley leaves, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup mint leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Pinch of allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the barley and water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 12 minutes. In a mesh strainer, rinse the barley in cold water.
  2. Transfer the barley to a large bowl. Stir in the tomatoes, cucumbers, parsley, mint, chives, lemon juice, allspice, salt and pepper.

Notes

This tabbouleh can also be made with roasted tomatoes.
