Bulgur wheat salad with vegetables and feta cheese

4 Jun

The great nutritious benefits of bulgur wheat are way undermined, i personally think it doesn’t get enough “media attention” (can we actually call it that?) being such a great substitute to processed carbohydrates such as white rice or pastas, you can include bulgur in so many different dishes, hot or cold, in salads, and even turn it into a sweet twist with some raisins and fruit.

It tastes absolutely delicious and really does keep you full, our body needs its carbohydrates for energy especially active people if you like to cycle or go jogging. Instead of substituting your rice which you have been “frightened” of because of what you have read online, that definitlly, 100% does not mean all carbs are bad!!!!! And bulgur wheat is a great ingredient to add to your diet.

Ingredients:
4 tbsp raw bulgur wheat
1 tomato chopped
1/2 onion chopped
4 mushrooms
1/2 egg plant
40gr feta cheese
2 tsp olive oil
Lettuce
Cucumber
Parsley

Chop the onions and add to a pan with the olive oil, add in the tomato. Add bulgur and water and leave to boil.

In a pan add chopped egg plant and mushrooms on low heat for 10 minuets until tender.

When bulgur is ready mix in the mushrooms and egg plant, mix in the feta and start combining on low heat.

Pour on top of your salad and season with some cayenne pepper.

You have your carbs, your protein, your veggies, and your healthy fats! And most importantly it tastes absolutely amazing and allows you to have a plate full of food. Thats what makes a delicious and nutritious meal 😉 No need to have one piece of lettuce and cucumber on an empty plate to be categorized as “healthy.”
