Tabbouleh is a Mediterranean salad traditionally made with parsley leaves, burglar, tomatoes, herbs and seasonings. In this recipe I’ve replaced burglar with millets which makes it completely gluten free and equally tasty and rich. Millets are a great inclusion to the diet as they are full of fibres and packed with nutrition. The flavours of this salad is refreshing and satisfying. With millets and fresh herbs and veggies ,this salad is so healthy for you as it’s full of antioxidants and immunity boosting. Make this as your main course dish by increasing millet in the recipe or use it as a side dish, either way they taste absolute best!
