Millet Tabbouleh

Our love for Middle Eastern food continues with this delicious tabbouleh made with millet berries.  We’ve never had millet berries before but it’s kind of like bulgar and cous cous.  The kiddos tried tabbouleh for the first time and devoured it!

You can easily substitute bulgar or cous cous for the millet.

Recipe adapted from War Eagle Mill.
