Spicy bulgur wheat salad

    25 min

    This recipe is similar to an authentic tabbouleh, but I like to spice it up a little with cumin and cayenne pepper! It's very versatile. I also like to include red onion and peppers. Try it and see what you think.

    1. Place the bulgur in a saucepan; cover with the vegetable stock and bring to the boil over medium heat. Simmer on low for 15-20 minutes or until bulgur has swollen in size. Transfer to a salad bowl and allow to cool slightly.
    2. Stir red onion into the bulgur until well combined. Add diced tomatoes, peppers and chopped herbs; mix again.
    3. Whisk lemon juice, olive oil, cumin and cayenne pepper together until well blended. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
    4. Pour dressing over bulgur wheat; fluff with a fork and serve or chill.

    Make this salad every other week with quinoa or bulgur wheat. Also add sweetcorn as hubby loves the stuff. Goes down a treat.  -  06 Apr 2018
