Much as I love eating with the tinies I can’t say I am always game for what is on their menu. Monday has ended up being a pie lunch, which in itself is delicious and devoured by them, but not always what I necessarily want to eat, particularly after the weekend. SO as the ‘little people’ dig deep into whatever pie happens to have materialised from Sundays leftovers I have devised this rather clean, crunchy and healthy alternative that literally takes less than 10 minutes to knock up.

Bulgur salad with tomatoes, celery, radish and yogurt

Serves 1 hungry mummy

  • 70g of uncooked bulgur wheat
  • 2 sticks of celery diced
  • 6 radishes, quartered
  • 4 cherry tomatoes, diced
  • Basil or Parsley – 1 handful roughly chopped
  • Splash of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of natural yogurt
  • A drizzle of Pomegranate molasses

1. Cook the bulgur as instructed on the packet.

2. Place the chopped celery, tomatoes, radishes and herbs in a good sized bowl large enough to hold the cooked bulghar. Toss with the olive oil, a good pinch of Maldon sea salt and a good grind of black pepper.

3. Add the cooked and drained bulghar, toss the salad so it is well mixed, add a dollop of natural yogurt on top and a splash of pomegranate molasses, serve immediately and eat as soon as you can between feeding the ‘little people’!
