  1. Mix together the oil, honey and harissa, then drizzle half over the aubergines and pepper. Season well. Heat a griddle pan, then cook the veg for 10-15 mins, turning until lightly charred and cooked through.

  2. Meanwhile, tip the bulgur wheat into a large bowl and pour over boiling water so it is well covered. Let it sit for 10 mins until softened and plump, drain, then pour over the remaining dressing, the lemon juice, zest and mint leaves. Season well and toss everything together. Serve the roasted vegetables on top of the bulgur, drizzled with yogurt, if you like.

I made the paste instead of buying - it works well, not worth buying the real deal probably. Also, would be nice with a red onion and either bits of chicken or bits of quorn chicken, marinaded in the paste.

Enjoyed this as a light and healthy supper following biiiig buffet lunch! I threw in a courgette instead of a second aubergine and used dried mint with some fresh coriander in the bulghar wheat as that is what I had in stock. Also lime zest instead of lemon with a bit of extra lime juice thrown in. Would make again - came out nicer than I thought it might!

This is fine, but not a patch on the Spiced Bulghar, Chickpea & Squash salad elsewhere on this site. My advice is don't bother with this one and do the squash version instead!

Not bad, but not great either.
