Happy Tuesday guys! Today’s recipe is Butternut Squash & Root Veggies Bulgur Salad – a beautiful Fall salad that you’re gonna fall for! 🙂 Seriously, it’s so colourful, packed with so many vegetables, crunchy and simply delicious! Not to mention the health benefits! 🙂 Bulgur wheat, beetroot, butternut squash & radishes are just a few of the yummy ingredients!
As the weather is getting a bit chilli (or a lot) I can’t stop but think about heart-warming and comforting recipes like stews, soups and salads too. There are so many amazing Fall salads that I love and this Bulgur is one of my favs. It’s so nourishing and tasty and yet very healthy, packed with vitamins and minerals. All you need is beetroot (which we’ve been having a lot recently), radishes, butternut squash, some corn and chickpeas (optional). The dressing was very simple – extra virgin olive oil, fresh lemon juice and salt, you can never go wrong with this dressing. However I also added some of my spicy avo mayo (recipe hopefully coming soon) which is one of the most delicious dips ever (my opinion and taste 🙂 ). It’s the simplest thing to make – chilli flakes, avocado, lime & olive oil. It tastes delicious with rapeseed oil too. Of course, that made the salad even more filling and this meal filled me up for a long time. If you prefer, you can add some sliced avocado instead.
