Stacy's Cooking Journal

My cooking journal is an informal space for me to record what I've been up to in the kitchen. It's mainly intended for personal ideas, but feel free to check it out.

Middle Eastern Table Spread

My mother loves tabbouleh, so I was asked to make this more than once on my week-long trip! She says she could eat it happily everyday for lunch. It's so juicy and refreshing, I can't help but agree.

I needed a few things to go along with it, so the table spread included:
20 Minute Tabbouleh
Wicked Quick Hummus
Quick Chickpea Salad
Crumbled feta cheese
Pita
Tortilla chips (for the wheat sensitive, surprisingly tasty compliment)

Sadly, I didn't have a food processor, and making the hummus in a blender is no easy task. I had to do even the modest amount I made in batches, and the result was ill-blended and grainy. What was life like before food processors?? Next time, I'm going to make a tub of it here and then bring the whole thing over.

Besides the hummus and tabbouleh, I felt I needed something a little more. I improvised this chickpea salad based on the ingredients I had on hand. This was terribly easy and my mother loved it more than I could have anticipated. I mean, I thought it was a'ight. I ended up making a 3rd batch of it the day I left to keep her in supply. She'll eat it for lunch this week.
