Tabouleh Recipe

Tabouleh Recipe
Pronounced Tuh-Boo-Lee. A classic Mediterranean dish. Traditionally made with cracked burghul wheat. It is a perfectly light side dish. The recipe has been Americanized slightly by substituting couscous for the wheat. But it still maintains its texture, palate cleansing effects, and pop of freshness. This dish is a perfect palate cleanser because it contains not one but two types of palate cleansers which are fresh Italian parsley and fresh squeezed lemon. Tasting Guidelines: Taste is fresh and clean. Weight is super light but can be balanced with olive oil. Texture is grainy. Good for people with low to severe treatment side effects. Especially good for severe side effects to get rid of strong metallic tastes. Best categorized as Mediterranean.

Hummus Recipe

Hummus Recipe
Ten years ago, people would have looked at you as if you had five heads when you talked about hummus. Now, it is in every grocery store across America. It is a bean paste made from the chickpea aka the garbanzo bean. Hummus is actually the Egyptian word for chickpea. Due to its high protein content, the chickpea is a main food staple in the Mediterranean and Middle East. This recipe is fairly authentic. It is simple to make yet difficult to master. I highly recommend using canned chickpeas over dried ones as it can make quite a mess. The key here is to balance the lemon and the olive oil as explained further in the recipe. Hummus can be used as a sandwich spread, eaten alone, and has many other uses. You can infuse the hummus with garlic, roasted red peppers, olives, ground pistachios, or whatever you really feel like. It is exceptionally versatile, and its limitations are only that up to our imagination. Tasting Guidelines: Taste lightly savory and a little spicy. Weight is light but can be balanced with lemon juice and olive oil. Texture of this recipe is creamy. Good for people with low to severe treatment side effects. Best categorized as classic Mediterranean.
