  Cracked wheat 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs) (Bulgur)
  Boiling water 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Olive oil 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Lemon juice 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Onion 1 Medium, chopped
  Fresh parsley 1 Cup (16 tbs), chopped
  Fresh mint 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), chopped
  Tomatoes 3
  Ground black pepper To Taste
  Salt To Taste

1. Soak bulgur in 1 cup lemon juice for about twenty minutes. No need to drain the bulgur since the lemon juice will be all absorbed.
2. Chop the tomatoes (small dice).
3. Clean the parsley and remove the large stems (you want mostly leaves)and chop fine.
4. Cut the onion, small dice.

5. Add the bulgur and tomato in a large bowl.
6. Add salt, pepper, allspice, lemon juice, olive oil, mint, parsley and optional minced jalapeno.
7. Taste for seasoning. If too dry, you can add additional lemon juice and olive oil and mix well.
8. Let your Tabouli rest for half an hour before serving, this will allow the flavors to mix and taste better - you can cover the bowl with plastic wrap and leave in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight, tossing occasionally.

9. Serve with cabbage or lettuce leaves and sliced cucumber - scoop some tabouli into a leaf and enjoy!
