Recipe: Tabouleh, Cous Cous and Lentil Salad

Hello beautiful people,

Fun fact, I used to hate Tabouleh because I had a traumatic experience when I was younger when my Aunty who was a terrible cook made it for me. Lets just say it was not pleasant. For years I could then only eat Tabolueh with curly leaf parsley which is totes not normal, but I was honestly so scared that I couldn’t eat flat leaf parsley. Anyway fast forward and now I’m obsesses with Tabouleh and all variations. Today I share my ‘beefed’ up version featuring Lentils!

What you need:

  • 2 bunches of flat leaf parsley
  • Packet of cherry tomatoes
  • 1 brown onion
  • 1-2 garlic cloves
  • 1 can green lentils
  • Cous cous
  • Olive oil
  • Lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper

Meal Planning Tips

Hello lovely people,

With most of us back to work trying to get into a normal routine, personally I know how hard it is to organise my packed lunches. I’m a big fan of a packed lunch! If I had to buy lunch every day for a week I would spend a minimum of $50 a week and lets be real a good salad is at least $13 so it would be more than $50 a week! Anyway, here are my meal planning tips so we can all be organised, have a yummy lunch and save some dollars.

Plan your meals

Make a rough idea of what meals you’ll be eating throughout the week including dinners. That way you’ll know what days you’ll have left overs as well.

Shopping list

Shopping lists come in handy to keep you on track and get everything you need. Of course there’s times when I still run to the shops to get a few extra things but most of the time a weekly shop is enough.

Sunday prep day

Sunday is my day to prepare my lunches. Usually we have a Sunday roast, so automatically that’s my left overs for Monday lunch. While my roast is cooking I prepare salad stuff and cook some chicken or boil some eggs. I put all the salad stuff in individual take away boxes and don’t put any dressing on it, to keep it fresh. I usually make salads for 3 day in advance, anymore and the salad can look a bit limp.
