Method

  1. Put the bulghar wheat and spices in a large bowl, season with salt and pour over 140ml boiling water. Cover with cling film and leave to sit for 10 mins. Fluff with a fork, then add the chopped dates, parsley, chickpeas and most of the almonds. Pour the dressing ingredients into a glass jar with a fitted lid and add some seasoning. Shake well and pour over the salad.
  2. Just before eating, mix the spinach through, top with the clementine slices and scatter with the remaining almonds.

I searched for 'wheat free' and the first recipe offered is this one. How ridiculous can you get. Bulgar wheat is wheat with all the attendant problems.

Can we keep to discussing food and recipes on this site, please, which is what it is intended for and forget the inappropriate advertising as above.

For a lunchtime meal this is rather high in both calories and carbohydrates, even if they are mainly grains and pulses. I'd probably want a nap after eating this!

I thought it looked and sounded nice but I don't have the ingredients. Calories all be it good ones rather high.
