weekend herb blogging

Weekend Herb Blogging is a food blogging event sponsored by Kalyn's Kitchen where each week food bloggers around the world photograph and write about herbs, plants, veggies, or flowers, and on the weekend, a Recap is published with links to all the posts. This is great fun to read and made my mouth water!

I made some more tabouli to take for my "lunch" at my paying job this weekend. A couple of my peers were curious to try it and enjoyed it, demanding that I bring it for the next potluck party we have (we try to have lots of those -- yum yum!). Of course, lots of recipe-sharing goes on. I confess, I love food, but don't really love to cook, heh heh.

But in explaining my recipe for tabouli to my friends, I finally realized why my youngest daughter says my tabouli always tastes the same, no matter how much I change up the ingredients. It's the cilantro! I almost 100% of the time use fresh cilantro. I don't always have fresh mint on hand. No matter. I sometimes do, sometimes don't, toast and grind some cumin seeds. No matter. I use different kinds of beans. No matter! I just have to have fresh cilantro!

When I make tabouli I always use tons of fresh parsley, but I've never added cilantro... I think I should.

I pretty sure it's not traditional to use cilantro. I too use lots of parsley. I can't exactly remember when I started adding cilantro. Maybe I'm addicted to cilantro, because even the word makes me feel.....aaahhh, yummy. People either love or hate cilantro, I find.
