Back to yet another healthy week now of noshing after weekend of letting it go. Bulgur Wheat is supposedly a wonder food that cuts the fat and bloating over of other carbs and grains, so I’m experimenting here. I’ve used it once before and I think I must have cooked it wrong but this time, I actually followed the instructions on the packet and didn’t make up my own J
I’m making enough to serves two people, but I’ll put one portion in the fridge for lunch tomorrow.
2 Peppers (I’m using mixture of red and yellow)
100g Bulgur Wheat
50g feta cheese, crumbled
2 tbsp chopped fresh mint
4 cherry tomatoes diced
Salt & pepper
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees
Slice the peppers down the middle and remove the membrane
Place the peppers cut side up in an oven proof dish in one layer.
Add water from a recently boiled kettle to come up a quarter of the way of the pepper
Bake in oven for 15 mins until softened
Meanwhile, prepare the bulgur wheat according to packet instructions
Mix then with the mint, feta and tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper
Stuff the holes in the peppers with the bulgur wheat mixture and bake for a further 10 minutes
Serve with a crisp green salad or for something more substantial add a grilled breast of chicken, or some fish.
