In my quest to try out some new lunch ideas I thought I would give bulgur wheat a go. I made this recipe the night before and left it in the fridge overnight and it was absolutely delicious! Really easy to put together and the bulgur wheat makes a nice change to cous cous!
Serves 1 = 5sp (previously 5pp) each
40g Bulgur Wheat, dried
½ teaspoon cumin, dried
30g half fat feta (I use aldi’s greek style salad cheese as its really low in points!)
Handful of cherry tomatoes, quartered
1/8 of red onion, finely diced
Half a pepper, finely diced
Finely chopped mint and/or parsley (or basil even!)
Juice of ½ of a lemon/lime
Cook your bulgur wheat according to the packet instructions. Mine need to be boiled for 15 minutes and left to stand for 10 minutes. Put your cumin in with the bulgur wheat before you boil it. Meanwhile chop up the rest of your ingredients, combine everything in a bowl, add in the bulgur wheat once cooked and finally mix in your lemon/lime juice. Serve with a handful of salad leaves or a pitta bread if you fancy!
