In the spirit of trying new wheats and pulses, I went and bought a kilo of bulgur wheat. I was determined to make amazingly complex dishes with this and it would taste amazing and I would love it. Except then Tuesday rolled around and I had no time for dinner and even less patience for complex food. So I made a salad with a bunch of leftovers. It was the simplest add-everything-and-stir meal, but it tasted delicious. Can’t believe I never tried bulgur before, it’s my new favorite thing!
Boil the bulgur in 2x the amount of water.
Cut red pepper, cherry tomatoes, olives (as many as humanly posible, if you like olives. Seriously, this dish can handle the olives) and half a red onion.
Drain can of chickpeas.
Have at the ready cut up fresh or dried basil, parsley and garlic powder.
Add cubes of Cheatin’ rashes and some cheese (both optional).
Add all together and stir. Add lemon juice to taste.
