Mixing up your grains is a great way to increase your plant diversity which means your gut bugs will be happy 😁
You can use most grains (e.g. quinoa, brown rice, buckwheat) interchangeably in salads so try using a different grain at your next meal. This week I used bulgur wheat which is a middle eastern grain (a bit like couscous)
As always make in advance and batch cook!
200g halloumi, sliced
1 cup of bulgur wheat
1 big handful spinach
15 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 red pepper, chopped
1 tbsp harissa paste
3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
1 bunch of mint (optional), chopped
Cook the bulgur wheat according the instructions.
Gently fry the halloumi for a few minutes until golden.
Once cooked & cooled add the bulgur wheat to a large bowel with the harissa paste and olive oil mixing well.
Add the spinach, tomatoes, red pepper, mint (if using) & halloumi.
(makes 3 portions)
Enjoy! Michelle x
