Recipe from What's For Lunch, Honey?  

Bulgur Mixed Veg and Feta (04) by MeetaK

Ingredients

500g mixed vegetables of choice, cut or chopped into bite size pieces and steamed for 5 -6 minutes - I used broccoli, carrots, corn, parsnips and cauliflower
3/8 l vegetable stock
300g bulgur
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
3 small springs rosemary, coarsely chopped
3-4 springs thyme, coarsely chopped
1 can (425 ml) cherry tomatoes
200g feta cheese, cut into cubes - I used herb flavored feta
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil

 

Method

To prepare the bulgur add 1 tablespoon of oil into a large pot and sauté the garlic and onions. Add the bulgur and sauté for another minute. Pour in the stock and cook the bulgur according to the instructions on the packet. Normally it will take somewhere between 10 to 12 minutes.

After the bulgur has cooked add the can of tomatoes to the pot, salt and pepper to taste and allow to simmer for another 6-8 minutes. This allows the bulgur to soak in the juices from the tomato juice and softens the tomatoes.

Now throw in the steamed vegetables and herbs, stir well. Mix in the feta and drizzle with the remaining olive oil. Serve hot as a side or as a main.
