|Tabouleh salad with grilled chicken|
Food blog + gluttonous tendencies = expanding waistline.
TWO extra belt holes since Christmas to be exact.
Time for a lighter diner me thinks - tabouleh and griddled chicken.
|nice sweet tomatoes - hooray|
|Butterflied chicken grilling away nicely|
Tabouleh - serves 2
80g bulgar wheat
80g flat leaf parsley (aka a massive bunch)
the leaves from a few stalks of mint, finely chopped
4 finely cut spring onions
handful of nice tomatoes, in small cubes
juice of 2 lemons
very, very good glug of olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Pour salted boiling water over the bulgar wheat and leave for 10-15 mins.
Its nice when there is still a little texture to the grain i.e. don’t nuke it.
Drain, the run some cold water over the grain to chill it.
Add the cooked bulgar wheat to the other ingredients.
Stir and serve.
