In one week my husband and I will celebrate our first wedding anniversary.
My how the time flies. You know those moments that you have to pinch yourself to see if you’re dreaming? The moments where time stands still and life feels almost perfect? The moments where all is as it should be and you feel alive and full of love?
That’s how our wedding day was. One amazing, beautiful day. Sure things went wrong and not according to plan. But I didn’t care because I was marrying my best friend, and that was all that mattered.
My husband, Alex, is more than just my best friend though. He’s also my taste tester, prop holder, picture selector and overall biggest supporter of this blog. And I couldn’t do life or this website without him.
One of the funnest things about being married to Alex has been introducing him to new foods. The other week, I mentioned that I would be making Gluten-Free Tabbouleh with Chickpeas for Snap Fitness and this was his response: “Tabbo-what?”
Maybe you’re saying the same thing today and you’ve never tried Tabbouleh. Well my friends, you are in for a delicious experience. Tabbouleh is an Arabian dish traditionally made with finely chopped tomatoes, cucumber, parsley, mint, onion, bulgur and onion. Though this dish dates back as far as the Middle Ages, you can find it on the menus of many Mediterranean restaurants.
My recipe for tabbouleh is a little different because it uses quinoa instead of bulgur to make it gluten free If you do not follow a gluten-free diet you’re more than welcome to use bulgur instead.
What really makes this gluten-free tabbouleh deliver on flavor is the addition of chickpeas. This also boosts the nutritional value of the recipe and helps make it more of a complete meal in my opinion.
