Zingy Bulgar Wheat Salad

27 Mar

This is a great light lunch that is full of flavor. The  bulgar wheat is a great alternative to the usual grains like rice, pasta or couscous. The bulgar wheat takes a bit of time to cook but it’s well worth it. It is high in protein and really nutritious. The vegetables can be changed up if you like, but I think it is really important to have a variety of colors because it makes the dish look really appealing.


Zingy Bulgar Wheat Salad (Serves 1)

50g bulgar wheat

1/3cup frozen peas

1/2 carrot, cut into matchsticks

1 inch cucumber, cut into matchsticks

1/2 small red onion

1/4 yellow pepper, sliced very thinly

For the Dressing:

1tbsp olive oil

1/2 red chilli, finely chopped

1tsp honey

1tsp white wine vinegar

  • Cook the bulgar wheat according to packet instructions using chicken stock. Add in the peas in the last 3mins.
  • Whisk together the the ingredients for the dressing.
  • Place all the sliced veggies in a bowl, top with the bulgar wheat and peas and drizzle generously with the dressing. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
