This tabbouleh recipe with chickpeas has lots of parsley, mint, tomatoes and cucumbers. Toasting brings out the flavor in the cumin, and cinnamon adds a subtle depth to the flavors. Bring this tabbouleh recipe as a side to a party or serve as a one-dish supper for 6 instead of 8.
Make Ahead Tip: Prepare without the tomatoes and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Dice and drain tomatoes and stir into the salad shortly before serving.
Tip: Toasting brings out the flavor in spices like the cumin in this tabbouleh. Toast seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat, stirring, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool. Grind with a spice mill or mortar and pestle.
