Delicious and fresh dish from the Middle East. Use bulgur as the base for this salad of superhealthy greens, feta cheese and spices
How to do it
200g bulgur wheat

Tip the bulgur wheat into a heatproof bowl and just cover with boiling water, then cover with cling film and set aside for 10-15 mins or until tender. Put the kale in a food processor and pulse to finely chop.
Stir the kale, mint, spring onions, cucumber and tomatoes through the bulgur wheat. Season with the cinnamon and allspice, then dress with the olive oil and lemon juice to taste. Scatter over the lemon zest and feta. When you prep, scoop the salad onto leaves of Baby Gem lettuce.
