How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large heatproof bowl, cover the bulgur with at least 
2 inches of boiling water. Cover and let stand until tender, about 30 minutes. Drain well. 

Step 2    

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 375°. On a rimmed baking sheet, toast the pine nuts and almonds for about 8 minutes, until lightly browned. Let 
cool. Finely chop the almonds. 

Step 3    

In a large bowl, toss the bulgur with the tomatoes, parsley, mint, scallions, olive oil, lemon juice, cumin, pine nuts and almonds. Season the tabbouleh with salt and serve.
