Bulghur is coarsely ground wheat grains that have been parboiled, so it's quick and easy to prepare and makes an ideal storecupboard standby to use in salads as well as in hot dishes. This nutty-textured, colourful salad makes a great main dish for a summer lunch or picnic, and looks pretty enough for a special buffet.

IngredientsServes: 4

  • 250 g (8½ oz) bulghur wheat
  • 1 small red onion, very thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot, coarsely grated
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 6 baby corn, sliced into rounds
  • ½ cucumber, diced
  • 200 g (7 oz) peeled cooked prawns
  • Lime and chilli dressing
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • ¼ tsp crushed dried chillies
  • salt and pepper

MethodPrep:35min ›Cook:15min ›Ready in:50min

  1. Put the bulghur wheat in a saucepan and pour over 650 ml (22 fl oz) water. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 10 minutes or until the bulghur is tender and all the water has been absorbed. Tip the bulghur into a flat dish, spread out and allow to cool slightly.
  2. Combine the onion, carrot, tomato, corn, cucumber and prawns in a large salad bowl. Add the bulghur wheat and stir together.
  3. For the dressing, put the oil, lime juice, garlic, chilli flakes, and salt and pepper to taste in a small bowl. Whisk with a fork until combined. Stir the dressing into the salad, tossing to coat all the ingredients evenly. If not serving the salad immediately, cover and keep in the fridge.

Some more ideas

For a bulghur wheat and feta salad, replace the prawns with 200 g (7 oz) diced feta cheese. Another alternative to the prawns is diced tofu. * To make a bulghur wheat and ham salad, combine the cooked bulghur wheat with 150 g (5doz) thinly sliced Parma or Serrano ham, trimmed of all fat and cut into strips, 3 chopped spring onions, 1 seeded and diced yellow pepper, 200 g (7 oz) halved cherry tomatoes and 3 tbsp capers. Make the dressing by whisking together 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, 2 tbsp red wine vinegar, 1 tsp clear honey and 6 finely crushed allspice berries. Season to taste and toss with the salad.

Plus points

Bulghur wheat is a good source of starchy carbohydrate, dietary fibre and B vitamins, as it contains all the particularly nutritious outer layers of the grain except the bran itself. * The inclusion of raw vegetables in this salad not only adds texture and colour but also vitamins, particularly those with antioxidant properties. * Prawns, like all seafish, contain iodine, which is needed for the formation of the thyroid hormones and the functioning of the thyroid gland itself.

Each serving provides

B12 * A, niacin, copper, iron * B1, C, E, calcium, potassium, selenium, zinc

I had to skip the chilli and coriander dressing because it gave too much kick: the result was bland but just right for all the ages at the family soiree-01 Nov 2011

I've done it with prawns and I've done it again with feta cheese instead - both work really well and are delicious!-09 Aug 2010

Keep scrolling to get the full recipe for this halloumi, sweet potato & bulgur wheat salad…

We had a light, lemony chilli dressing over the whole thing. Plus there’s olives.

I really love olives. You can really make this salad your own, add as much or as little rocket and olives as you like. I’ve included the basic recipe for the bulgur wheat salad and the halloumi and sweet potato but the rest is pretty much up to you!

Oh, and if you want to add more traditional salad ingredients (tomato, cucumber etc.) then they would work so well in here too.

Samba Godhumai Payasam – Cracked Wheat Payasam

We love cracked samba godhumai/Emmer wheat in our house. You all know I am from Coimbatore. All households in Coimbatore invariably make upma out of this cracked emmer wheat atleast once a week. They make it all the time y’all. Whenever I visit my in-laws place, upma is there for dinner every damn alternative day. My husband, my father, my mom, my in-laws, everyone except me loves it. I am not a great fan of upma. I am glad I told you I don’t like upma. But Samba godhumai/emmer wheat payasam – Now we are talking baby. Its to die for. Its my favorite. I made this for my wedding anniversary today as samba godhumai is my husband Vinodh’s favorite.

This is for my American readers – This is not bulghur wheat. This is cracked wheat. So whats the difference?
What is Bulghur – Whole wheat kernels are steamed, dried and then ground coarsely to make bulghur. This makes bulghur ready to eat with minimal cooking which involves soaking it in hot water or a flavored broth. What is Cracked wheat – Its what it says. Its just whole wheat that’s cracked.

Lets go make some awesome dawsome godhumai payasam. Come with me.
Add half a cup of cracked wheat, 3.5 cups water and pressure cook the wheat in water for 4 whistles/10 minutes.

Strain the water from the wheat after its cooked. Add the jaggery to the strained water and bring the mixture to a boil. Let it boil for 3-4 minutes.

Add in the strained cooked wheat, a cup of coconut milk, 1/4 teaspoon of cardamom and a pinch of salt and let it simmer in very low flame for 3-4 minutes.

When the payasam is simmering, take a small pan/kadai and heat ghee. Add the raisins and the cashews and fry till golden brown.

Once the cashews are brown, add the hot ghee mixture to the payasam. Remove off heat.

Serve hot or chilled.

Day One &ndash &lsquoFeast Day&rsquo

Snack: Up to two snacks - 5GL each

Breakfast: Blueberry Pancakes

© Ian Greig Garlick

Delicious blueberry compote oozing out of sweet pancakes. Blueberries are a superfood, rich in powerful antioxidants.

Makes 4 large pancakes &ndash serving suggestion 1 pancake per person


50g (2oz) cornflour
50g (2oz) quinoa lour
35g (around 11/2oz) xylitol
210ml (7fl.oz) skimmed milk,soya milk or nut milk
2 ½ tbsp. water
1 medium egg
4 tsp coconut oil for frying (1 tsp per pancake)

For the filling

4 tbsp blueberries
2 tsp xylitol
1 tbsp water
1 tsp lemon juice

How to Prepare

  1. Make the pancakes by blending all the pancake ingredients except the coconut oil in a blender until smooth
  2. Melt one teaspoon of the coconut oil in a frying pan and tip to coat the whole pan surface. Spoon in half a ladleful of the batter (a quarter of the total batter) and tip the pan to spread it evenly in a circle around the base.
  3. Cook for 30 to 45 seconds, then turn with a spatula (or the more adventurous can attempt to flip) and cook the other side for a similar length of time, until pale golden.
  4. Remove from the pan and keep warm(place on a plate and cover with a clean, dry tea towel) until it is ready to be served. You will have to add another teaspoon of oil to the pan between pancakes to make sure they do not stick.
  5. To make the blueberry filling, place the blueberries in a pan with the xylitol, water and lemon juice and heat gently until the berries start to burst and release their juice, producing a berry compote. Spoon a bit into the middle of each pancake and fold up.

Lunch: Omelette with Smoked Salmon and Asparagus

© Ian Greig Garlick

This dish ticks a lot of boxes, with the oily fish providing omega-3, the egg providing a hefty dose of B vitamins and the asparagus adding fibre and vitamins. You can take this recipe and vary according to taste or what you have in the fridge. &ndash try wilted spinach and sun-dried tomatos.


3 free-range or organic eggs
Pinch of salt
50g (2oz) fine asparagus spears, trimmed
Knob of butter or coconut oil
1 heaped tbsp. of smoked salmon
Freshly ground black pepper
Wedge of lemon, to serve

How to Prepare

  1. Beat the eggs and alst together in a bowl.
  2. Put the asparagus on to steam for about 5 minutes or until al dente &ndash take care to take it off the heat as soon as it is cooked. While this is cooking, make the omelette.
  3. Heat a small frying pan over a medium heat, add the butter or oil and move it about the pan to coat the base and sides, then pour in the eggs. As the omelette starts to set, repeatedly run the back of the fork across the base of the pan to lift up some of the mixture and let the uncooked egg spill underneath and cook.
  4. When the base has coloured and set, put the asparagus over half the omelette and top with the smoked salmon. Sprinkle with black pepper, then carefully fold in half and leave for 30 seconds or so to cook the middle before easing it out of the pan and onto a plate. Serve immediately, with a wedge of lemon.

Heat a frying pan and toast the bulgur wheat for 2-3min until golden. Tip into a bowl pour over stock. Cover and leave to soak for 10min.

Add the nuts, cabbage, carrots, turkey, cranberries, cheese and most of the mint. Season. Use a fork to mix everything together.

Segment the oranges: put on a board and slice the top and bottom off each. Using a sharp knife, remove the peel and white pith from the oranges, then slice between the membrane to remove the segments.

Top the salad with the oranges, any juice and remaining mint, then drizzle over the olive oil and serve immediately.

Use up leftover ingredients in this dish. Instead of the turkey, try sausages, ham or even finely chopped stuffing next time round.
