MeatlessMonday: Black Olives, Red Peppers & Feta Cheese Wheat Salad

Mummy’s Fast & Easy

Happy Meatless Monday guys!

Here’s a quick, easy and tasty recipe for those of you, who like me, love grains.
The recipe I made is kind of Greek inspired wheat salad. I know many of you probably have not tried hulled wheat yet, and if you haven’t I strongly recommend it.
Not only it tastes amazing, it’s very filling and apparently has got numerous health benefits.

I usually have it sweet with lots of honey, cinnamon and walnuts, it really tastes divine(will probably post the sweet version too) but basically I wanted to try and make something savoury.
This is really simple, especially if, like me, you’ve cooked the wheat in advance – just cook a pot and store it in the fridge. It usually lasts for a week. Oh, did I mention it helps for weight loss?

Here’s what you need.
