I love bulgur wheat and this is a very easy to make recipe. It is perfect for a picnic, lunchboxes or a side dish. You can add any fillings of your choice and change the herbs if you prefer. 40g of feta cheese is a healthy extra A choice, so bear that in mind when adding your cheese. As always, feel free to tag me in your creations. I love seeing my recipes recreated.
Syns: FREE, when using cheese as part of your healthy extra A choice
Time Taken: 20 minutes
- 1 cup of bulgur wheat
- 2 cups of boiling water
- 1 oxo vegetable cube
- Diced red onion
- Diced cucumber
- Diced pepper
- Tin of chickpeas (drained)
- Chilli flakes
- Chopped fresh parsley and coriander
- Feta cheese
Put the bulgur wheat in a pan with the boiling water and crumble the oxo cube to it. Cook on a low heat, covered, until all the water has evaporated and the bulgur is cooked.
Whilst the bulgur wheat is cooking, prepare and your veg and herbs you want to add to it.
Once the bulgur is cooked, use a fork to fluff up the grains and let it cool completely before adding the veg and herbs.
Mix through some feta cheese and season to taste
