Happy Monday guys! The recipe of the day is Grilled Vegetables & Halloumi Bulgur Salad – packed with crunchy veggies, grilled Halloumi and bulgur wheat, this salad is not only super delicious but very nutritious and healthy!
And because it’s Meatless Monday, it’s a great meat free option to have today.
It seems I haven’t posted a MM recipe for a long time! So it was about time! The truth is I post whenever I can. I know I should probably make a schedule and stick to it but it’s really difficult and my plan almost never works.
For example, I had quite interesting recipes to test, photos to edit and of course blog posts to share. And of course, lots of other stuff to do. 🙂 What happened? Well, chickenpox happened. 🙂 Not me, but my daughter got it so we stayed at home for the whole week. And I had to make sure to entertain her and the little one too. I barely had time to cook. But this is over now, so we are back to our normal schedule – nursery, playgroups with the baby and the only time I’ve got is when they nap. So the longer the nap, the better the work I manage to do. Hopefully I’ll be able to upload a few yummy recipes this week! Fingers crossed! 🙂
Anyway, I think you get the point, back to this gorgeous Grilled Vegetables & Halloumi Bulgur Salad…
It’s one of the simplest recipes to make and yet it’s so delicious and very filling. Bulgur in general is quite filling so if you need a meal to keep you up for longer this is the one. There are tinned veggies you can use, if it’s more convenient for you, but the freshly grilled veggies would taste better.
I also added a generous serving of hummus which I had in the fridge for a couple of days. It worked really well with the veggies and even the bulgur. 🙂 It also probably doubled the calories! 🙂
And I used Chilli Halloumi which is so tasty! Now that I found it in my local shop I always get in my weekly shopping and add it to salads, bbqs, sandwiches. It is quite spicy, so if you’re not hot food lover go with the normal Halloumi.
Here’s how to make this salad.
- 300g bulgur wheat, cooked
- 1 eggplant, grilled and sliced
- 1 zucchini, grilled and sliced
- 10 sun-dried tomatoes
- 150g Halloumi, grilled and sliced
- 2tbsp olive oil
- 1tbsp lemon juice
- salt to taste
- In a bowl, combine the bulgur with the vegetables.
- Add the olive oil and lemon juice, season with salt. Mix well.
- Arrange the grilled Halloumi cheese pieces on top and serve.
