Curried Bulgur and Mediterranean Bulgur / Bulgur com caril e Bulgur ao estilo mediterranico

I have to say I forgot about Bulgur wheat, until my dear friend Sandra made it when I was visiting a couple of weeks ago, since I came back I already cooked it twice, the curried bulgur it’s her recipe (I didn’t really ask so some things might be mixing 😉. I also made Mediterranean style bulgur, they are both very delicious indeed., they may look similar, but believe me, they taste very different! 🙂

For the bulgur use the rice technique : 1 bulgur for 2 water. Fry some onion and garlic in olive oil and add the bulgur salt and water and let it cook for 30 in low heat plus leave the lid on for a further 5 to 10m or until fluffy.

Choose your veggies of choice and chop them finely I used carrots, red peppers and zucchini and peas (just for the 1st). For the 1st recipe you fry the veggies with olive oil, onion and garlic, tomato passata ,paprika, chili and curry powder until soft. When all is mixed add some feta on top.
For the Mediterranean add the veggies plus some parsley and chopped sun dried tomatoes and fry in olive oil onion and garlic until soft. To spice it up I added chili oil (very hot) and a lot of fennel seeds.Mix the Bulgur with the veggies.I added some rucula, soft greens, linseed and sunflower seeds. ❤

P.S. Finally found an amazing restaurant with a vegan buffet, I’m seriously in love! If you live in Italy it’s in Rimini and it is called Bio’s Kitchen

Ja me tinha esquecido o quanto eu adoro bulgur! A minha querida amiga Sandra lembrou-me e ja fiz 2 receitas esta semana. A de Caril é dela e fiz tambem uma receita ao estilo mediterranico.

Para fazer a bulgur, fazer como se estivessem a fazer arroz, ou seja por cada medida de bulgur usar 2 de agua. Eu gosto de fritar cebola e alho em azeite e depois colocar a bulgur, agua e sal e deixar cozinhar com tampa durante 20 a 30m, depende da bulgur e depois com o fogo apagado mas com a tampa deixar absorver o resto da agua, durante mais uns 10m .

Escolher os vegetais : eu usei cenouras, pimentos vermelhos, courgette e ervilhas (so para a primeira), cortar bem fininhos e fritar em azeite, alho e cebola. Para a 1a receita os temperos sao sal, paprika, pò de caril , malagueta e polpa de tomate. Quando os legumes estiverem cozinhados, mas nao demais, misturar bem com a Bulgur e adicionar queijo feta.
Os temperos da 2a receita sao malaguetas picadas (usar bastante, sal, pimenta e muitas sementes de erva-doce, adicionar tambem se possivel tomates secos ao sol cortados aos bocadinhos (ou fresco se nao houver) e bastante salsa. Quando pronto misturar com a Bulgur e adicionar sementes de girassol, de linhaça, e agriao e rucula, servir quente ou frio, otimo para marmitas tambem! Embora tenham um aspecto parecido o sabor é completamente diferente e podem usar os vegetais que desejarem. Bom apetite x
