It’s a healthy option. It’s a plant based protein packed warm salad. Colourful and charming, and most important of all delicious!

Serves 4

  • 1 and 1/2 cups of bulgur wheat
  • 1 small butternut squash
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 pomegranate
  • 3 organic tomatoes
  • 1/2 bunch of coriander
  • 4 small red onions
  • 1 lemon
  • salt & pepper
  • dried herbs
  • olive oil

Cook the bulgur light and fluffy, I used a ratio of double the water for a cup of bulgur.

Wash & cut your butternut in big chunks, and place skin down on a baking tray. Slice garlic and add them on top of the butternut along with salt, pepper and herbs. Add to the tray 4 small peeled red onions.  Drizzle some olive oil. Bake at 180 for 20 min.

In a bowl, make some salsa. Chop tomatoes, small red onion and chopped coriander, salt and the juice of the lemon.

Prepare your pomegranate and put seeds in a bowl.

Once your bulgur is ready place in a big bowl, add 3/4 of your salsa, your pomegranate and add the roasted butternut squash. Keep the roasted red onions to plate.

Mix well and check for seasoning.  Add a little olive oil and more lemon if needed too.

You can now serve in a bowl, giving each one of your guest a nice red onion on top of the salad bowl. Looks fantastic and tastes better!
