Vegetable Tabouli with Balsamic Vinaigrette & Red Pepper Hummus


I shouldn’t be allowed to buy basil plants anymore. I always kill them, no matter what I do. So instead of wishing and hoping this one would live, i decided to butcher it up from the start and make it into some hummus. Hummus, like Greek yogurt, I can and do eat on top of everything. So it made for the perfect topper on my dinner. 


Vegetable Tabouli with Balsamic Vinaigrette

1/2 cup bulgur wheat
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup yellow corn
1/2 zucchini, diced
kalamata olives, halved
1 carrot, grated
shredded mozzarella

2-3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
salt and pepper
red pepper flakes

Add bulgur wheat to pot with 1.5 cups water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cover for 15 minutes. Once slightly cooled, add in vinaigrette, vegetables, cheese

Red Pepper & Basil Hummus 

1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
handful basil, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 roasted red pepper
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper

Combine ingredients in a food processor and pulse until smooth.
