  • Ingredients

    100g Bulgar Wheat
    400g Tin Chick Peas Drained and Rinsed
    2tsp Harissa Paste
    165g Cherry Tomatoes Chopped into Small Chunks
    1 Small Red Onion Finely Chopped
    50g Fresh Flat Leaf Parsley Finely Chopped
    10g Fresh Mint Leaves Finely Chopped
    Juice from Half a Lemon
    1 ½tbsp Olive Oil
    Salt

How to Cook

1. Put the bulgar wheat in a large bowl and cover with boiling water. Leave for 20 minutes until the grains have softened and absorbed the water. When ready, drain away any excess liquid.

2. Combine the chick peas and harissa paste in a separate bowl. When the bulgar wheat is ready, add to this bowl and stir through.

3. Gently stir in the tomatoes, parsley, mint and red onion.

4. Drizzle the olive oil and lemon juice over the top along with some salt. Stir this through and serve.

Spruce it Up

If you want to create a small side-dish then omit the chickpeas. It’ll go perfectly alongside a lamb kebab and a pot of tzatziki.
