I have been loving bulgar wheat lately so I thought I would come up a recipe which is healthy, satisfying and is great served cold – making it is perfect thing to take to work for lunch.
300g bulgar wheat
1 tin of sweetcorn
1 tin of chickpeas, rinsed
1 red pepper, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic
1 tsp chilli flakes
handful of basil
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp onion powder
Salt and pepper
[Makes 6 portions and lasts around 3 days refrigerated in an air tight container]
– Put the bulgar wheat in a pan and cover with hot water, a good few inches above the level of the bulgar wheat. Once this has come to a boil, put the lid on and reduce to a simmer for 10-15 minutes until cooked.
– Meanwhile sauté 2 cloves of garlic in olive oil until fragrant, finely chop the remaining glove of garlic and then add all of the garlic to the rest of the ingredients in a bowl.
– Once the bulgar wheat is cooked drain and mix everything together.
This is such a filling, satisfying and versatile recipe. I know I will be experimenting with some different flavour combinations in the next few weeks! Hope you enjoy 🙂 x
