Method

In a large microwave proof bowl, cover bulghar wheat with stock. Cover with cling film and microwave on High for 4 mins. Set aside, covered; it will absorb the stock within another 5 mins. Make a dressing with spice mix, lemon zest and juice and olive oil, then season to taste. Add the onion, chickpeas, peppers and coriander, toss through the cooked bulghar wheat and serve warm or cold.

I made this without normal peppers which I just softened in a frying pan first. I added a few chilli flakes too to give it a bit more of a kick. It is really tasty hot with Moroccan style meatballs too!

This is a lovely filling sadly which is surprising considering how low it is in calories. Had never tried bulghur wheat before, but will be using it more often now as it is somehow more satisfying than cous cous.

This is a great recipe and have made it on a number of occasions and I am usually asked for the recipe. Tastes great and pretty to look at and wonderful with bbq meats or plain roast chicken.

This is a fantastic recipe. It looks good, it tastes fresh and it is healthy for you. I made it on Mothers' Day as I held a BBQ. It was very quick to make and popular too!

I love this salad for lunch, it's delicious and very filling.
The only thing I've changed is how I prepare the bulghar wheat, I've tried it in the microwave but it didn't cook through properly, so I soak the bulghar wheat in the stock for 30 mins and cover it with a plate instead.
