Mediterranean cuisine has brought us some of the healthiest foods in the world, and also some of the tastiest. And though there are plenty of healthy menu items here at Petra Bistro, it’s hard to beat our Tabouli for fiber, vitamins, minerals, vegetarian protein, and fresh-tasting flavor. Here’s a look at a few of the ingredients, and how much they have to offer!

  1. Bulgur

This ancient grain is not only fiber-rich but also high in protein with a low glycemic index, meaning that it’s great for anyone watching their blood sugar or carbohydrates. It also contains potassium and iron!

  1. Onions

Onions are one of the world’s oldest panaceas. They’re used across cultures to treat inflammation, high cholesterol, increase antioxidants, and prevent cardiovascular disease and blood clots.

  1. Garlic

Another classic superfood, garlic contains few calories yet so many other beneficial elements, including manganese, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Selenium, Fiber, and notable amounts of Potassium, Phosphorus, Iron, and Vitamin B1!

  1. Parsley

Packed with nutrients, parsley is so much more than a garnish, and Tabouli makes excellent and amble use of this powerful green. It is an excellent source of Vitamin K (at 554% of your Daily Recommended Value!), Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and folic acid and iron, both of which prevent anemia.

  1. Mint

Mint is an incredibly potent digestive aid. It can help ease nausea, settle a stomach after a meal, prevent bowel spasm and pain, and promote the health of the teeth, gums, and entire digestive track.
