Bulgur and Chickpeas with Greek Vegetable Trio
Whole grains, legumes, and a large proportion of veggies make a healthy tasty meal! Cook a large batch of chickpeas and bulger wheat ahead of time for an easy recipe. Cooked grains and beans are great to have on hand throughout the week. For each serving:
1 cup cooked bulgur wheat
½ cup cooked chickpeas
1-2 cups mix of roughly chopped tomato, cucumber, onion
Fresh herb of your choice (parsley, mint, cilantro, oregano)
Feta cheese (optional)
Dressing- mix together the following according to your taste:
Lemon juice – or vinegar if no lemons are handy
Chickpea cooking liquid, unless you have used canned chickpeas then use a bit of broth
Tahini – just a touch, or omit if you do not have any on hand
Garlic – minced then mashed
Salt and pepper and chile flakes to taste
Briefly warm the bulgur and chickpeas in the microwave, or serve at room temperature. Combine all the ingredients with the dressing, or combine bulgur, chickpeas and dressing, then top with veggies, feta and herbs.
