Superfood Green Tabouli

I LOVE this salad!  My favourite chef, Teresa Cutter has come up with this Superfood Green Tabouli which is so easy to make and great on its own or as a side dish.  I made this for dinner and had a small piece of steak with it and had the leftovers for lunch the next day with a tin of tuna.

Traditional tabouli is made with bulgur, a cereal food made from the groats of several different wheat species whereas this tabouli is wheat free and the main ingredient is broccoli.

I have converted this for the thermomix but if you aren’t lucky enough to own one of these amazing machines, click on the link above for the original method.

You will need:

350 g raw broccoli, broken into florets
6 spring onions chopped into thirds
100 g (1 large bunch) parsley
100 g (1 large bunch) mint
1/2  avocado, chopped
20 g ( a good handful)  pumpkin seeds
50 g (2 good handfuls) pistachio nuts
100 g baby spinach leaves
Juice from 3 limes or 2 lemons
1 tablespoons cold pressed olive oil or flaxseed oil
30 g (1 handful) goji berries
A generous amount of black pepper and a little sea salt

Method:

Place pistachio nuts into TM bowl and chop for 2-3 seconds, speed 5 and set aside.

Next, place the spring onions, parsley and mint into TM bowl and chop for 3-4 seconds, speed 8.

Add the broccoli and chop for 4-5 seconds, speed 4-5 or until desired consistency.

Add the remaining ingredients and mix on reverse, speed 4 for 4-5 seconds.

Enjoy! xx

    Hi Emma, thanks for this recipe I can’t wait to try it. I have only had my thermomix for 2 weeks and have alreday made so many healthy yum dishes. I was wondering if you had converted The Healthy Chefs Banana + Coconut Bread. I am guessing I could probably have a crack at it just using an existing Thermomix banana bread recipe and chnaging the ingredients. Thanks Suzie

      Hi Suzie, no I haven’t but it looks yummy! I just had a quick look and it would be super easy to convert. The ingredients are already in grams and there is only two steps in the method that will use the thermomix. For the first step, I would chop everything on around speed 6 – 7 and the second step, you can just add the ingredients and mix on reverse, speed 3-4. Good luck!
