Such a great side dish! Fresh and amazing!
2.5 cups of Bulgar Wheat. You can also use other things such as couscous, quinoa, etc.
5 cups of water to a boil and drop in your 2.5 cups of bulgar. This is your typical 2:1 ratio. Stir gently with spoon to mix in well. After 3 minutes, turn heat off and let sit for 12 min.
The water should be absorbed and bulgar should be soft but not chewy. Refrigerate to cool down before adding ingredients.
1 bunch of mint pulled off of stems
2 tomatoes deseeded by cutting off each end and unrolling with knife
There will still be some seeds in the grooves. Remove with finger or spoon. Tomato seeds are naturally bitter.
2 Cucumbers. Ends cut off, split, and deseeded with table spoon.
Now cut each half into 1/8ths (Turning 1 whole cucumber into 1/16ths)
In a small mixing bowl, combine cucumber, tomato, mint, 100ml of olive oil, juice from 3 lemons, tbs of salt, tbs of pepper, and tbs of cumin. Mix well and pour into cooked bulgar.
I used a food mold and garnished with micro greens.
