Orange and Green Bulghur Wheat Salad

I decided to get some new and exciting ingredients to reenergise my cooking. I felt like everything I made was just meh. Even I didn’t want to eat it so how could I serve it to others!

I made an order to my favourite health and bulk food store, Huckleberry Farms.

I picked up some dates, bulghur wheat, buckwheat groats and maca powder. I have been so excited to have stuff to add to my salads to make them more exciting than iceberg lettuce and tomatoes.

You should make this salad because:
It is super colourful!
It keeps in the fridge for a few days and transports well
Whole grains are awesome
It tastes delicious
It is super easy to make.

how to cook bulghur wheat

rocket salad with whole grains



1 cup bulghur wheat
1 carrot, grated
1 zucchini, grated
250g orange cherry tomatoes, chopped
75g soft cheese
5-6 handfuls rocket
zest and juice of half a lemon
1 tsp of soy sauce
salt and pepper to taste


Cook up the bulghur wheat: 2 parts boiling water to 1 part wheat. Cover and leave to soak for 20 minutes. Drain any excess water.

Mix together soy sauce, lemon juice and zest, and 1/3 cup of water.

Chop or crumble the cheese. (I used Camembert but Feta is fantastic too.)

Combine everything in a bowl and toss together. Ass salt and pepper to taste.
