Pickled Rice Tabbouleh

I’ve been sick so much of the time lately, I haven’t felt like cooking. But one thing I have been playing with is experimenting with ways to increase the soluble fiber in my diet. Since barley is one of the few low fodmap high soluble fiber foods, I was intrigued when I saw this recipe on a list saying it was good with barley instead of rice. The recipe is rather unusual for something calling itself “tabbouleh”. It uses a pickle juice base and incorporates a raw herb sauce instead of the standard chopped herbs and veggies you’d find in tabbouleh.

I wasn’t crazy about the dish overall. I found the pickle juice flavor weird and I didn’t love the barley in it. I also really missed the usual tabbouleh veggies. I added some cherry tomatoes and found they really enhanced it.

But oh my gosh, this toasted pumpkin seed sauce…it’s like nothing I’ve ever made before. And jeeze is it good. I won’t be making this dish again but I’ll definitely incorporate this sauce into some other dishes. Plus, pumpkin seeds are also high in soluble fiber. So win win!
