    About this recipe: This is a deliciously wholesome dish, which is perfect as a main course or as a side salad. Bulgur is tossed with avocado, crispy bacon and flaked tuna.

    Makes: 4 

    • 250g dry bulgur wheat
    • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and diced
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 225g streaky bacon
    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
    • 2 (185g) tins tuna, drained

    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:1hr 

    1. Place the bulgur wheat into a saucepan with at least 3 times its depth in water. Bring to the boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Add water if necessary to prevent burning. When the wheat is tender, stir in a pinch of salt and simmer for 5 more minutes. When done, drain and set aside to cool.
    2. Place bacon in a large, deep frying pan. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside. Place the diced avocado into a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then toss with lemon juice to thoroughly coat.
    3. In a large bowl, combine the tuna and cooled bulgur wheat. Add the bacon and the avocado with its juice and toss gently. Serve as a meal or as a salad.

    Excellent - we really loved this recipe!! My husband and I made it as a meal, and served it on top of some lettuce. It was so tasty with the mix of bacon, tuna and avocado. I definitely recommend this dish!  -  16 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Not bad but after tasting it found it a little bland so I added extra pepper and a little onion powder. No one really liked the dish except me so there's a lot leftover...as mentioned by another reviewer...I will add tomato and onion on a bed of romaine to the leftovers and see how that goes!  -  26 Oct 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
