About this recipe: 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.


Serves: 4 

  • 100g bulgur wheat
  • 300ml vegetable stock
  • 1 red onion, finely sliced
  • 2 large tomatoes, diced
  • 1 red, yellow or green pepper, finely sliced
  • 1 large bunch of parsley, chives or mint, finely chopped
  • For the dressing
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pinch cumin powder, or to taste
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  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.
