Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. 

Boil 1 1/2 cups water and pour over the bulgur in a mixing bowl. Cover and let stand to cool to room temp, 30 minutes. 

Meanwhile, arrange the fennel, red bell pepper, chile pepper and zuchhini on a baking sheet and dress with EVOO and salt and pepper. Arrange the butternut squash on a larger baking sheet, dress with EVOO and season with salt and pepper and a little freshly grated nutmeg. Roast until the vegetables and squash are tender and brown at the edges, 17 to 20 minutes. 

In a large mixing bowl, whisk up two-thirds of the lemon juice, about 1/2 cup EVOO, and some salt and pepper with 2 cloves garlic. Working in a large bowl of water, separate the pomegranate seeds and add to the mixing bowl, along with the parsley, mint, onions and bulgur; toss to combine. 

In a small bowl, whisk up the yogurt, 1/4 cup water, tahini, the remaining lemon juice, the remaining clove garlic, cumin and some salt and pepper. Pour into a container and refrigerate. 

Cool the roasted vegetables and combine with the tabbouleh. Store, covered, in the fridge for a make-ahead salad supper. 

To serve, heat a griddle pan and douse with a splash of water. Add the naan and blister 30 seconds on each side. Fill each naan with shredded lettuce and tabbouleh salad and top with the dressing, nuts and optional chopped hot pickled vegetables.
