In honor of Brightland x Slow Factory's exclusive partnership, she has shared her recipe for Taboule, a Lebanese vegetarian salad, with us using ALIVE.

"Taboule is a delicious parsley salad where all the ingredients are chopped in tiny pieces. Chopping the ingredients with precision can serve as a beautiful way to engage in culinary meditation."
