About this recipe: Prunes wrapped in Parma ham are threaded onto skewers with onions and yellow peppers, and served with a piquant apricot sauce and a spicy bulghur wheat pilaf. All that is needed to complete the meal is a green salad.
Replace the prunes in the kebabs with ready-to-eat dried apricots and use red peppers instead of yellow ones. Add 170 g (6 oz) cooked peas to the pilaf with the bulghur wheat, plus ½ tsp ground cinnamon with the ground cumin. If you like, garnish with chopped fresh mint.
Bulghur wheat is not only a good source of fibre, but like many cereals it also provides B vitamins: 100 g (3½ oz) contains three times the RNI for vitamin B1 and two and a half times the RNI for niacin. * Prunes provide plenty of fibre as well as some iron. The vitamin C from the apricots in the sauce will help the body to absorb the iron.
