    Looks delicious! I’m a big fan of courgettes (or zucchini!) But I’m not so sure about what you’ve called it…. bit confusing as tabbouleh is made with burghul/bulgur (but is mainly parsley) and not with couscous, and this recipe uses neither!

    Hi Helen, thanks for your comment. You don’t realise it but you’ve actually figured out this recipe: It’s just what you say, it’s tabbouleh or couscous using neither bulgur nor couscous! The courgette is chopped up into fine chunks that resemble couscous or bulgur grains but there’s no wheat and it’s therefore gluten free 😉

    Happy Thermomix cooking with Why is There Air!
