Spinach, herb and bulgur salad…

This salad is packed full of flavour and goodness…to make this I chopped fresh spinach and coriander in a blender, added fresh garlic, spices, pomegranate molasses and olive oil. I think stirred it through freshly cooked bulgur wheat, cooked my way.

This was great eaten with some roasted tomatoes and some of my white bean, buttermilk and tahini sauce from my previous post 💚

Fresh herbs and quinoa salad..

In this bowl is a salad I made recently topped with a newly created dip/sauce and sprinkled with some dried barberries and za’atar.

For the salad, I chopped fresh coriander and parsley with garlic and sunblush semi dried tomatoes. I stirred in some olive oil and seasoning as well as some ground roasted cumin seeds, before mixing it with quinoa cooked my way.

To make the sauce/dip, I blended soft white cooked beans with buttermilk, tahini, lemon juice and garlic until I got a consistency and flavour that I liked.

Sorry for the lack of weights and measures but I do tend to just throw things together!

Have fun in your kitchen!
