I’m so far enjoying being healthier and trying to shift the wobble I’ve got going on round my front as well as trying to heal my tummy from the problems I have with it. Doing this has given me the opportunity to try new fun ingredients as well as cook with things I never thought I’d eat, let alone have in my kitchen!
Last night I cooked with bulgar wheat for the first time in my entire life and I’m completely in love with it!
It was 20:30 and I hadn’t eaten dinner yet so decided to whip up something quick with the ingredients I had in my cupboards. I don’t usually like to eat late like this, but Jon and I were up working late and became memorised by a game of Lego chess (such a nerd).
So guys… This meal is entirely vegan and comes in under 250 calories. It also completely filled me up!
I made it up as I went and honestly felt as creative and awesome as Deliciously Ella probably does on a daily basis so I wanted to show it off and give you all something to try!
I call this meal…
Tofu and bulgar wheat salad (for short: YUM)
- 1/2 yellow Pepper
- Two tomatoes
- Tender baby leaf salad
I chopped all these up and tossed them in some salt, pepper and onion seeds.
- I fried the tofu in some seasoning I have from china (completely vegan). Top tip for tofu: make sure your pan is very hot! You want to hear the tofu sizzle when you drop it in the pan. I do love tofu… yummy!
- I put 100g of bulgar wheat into a pan with some vegan stock (only a pinch), rinsed it off a couple of times and then left it on the hob with about 2cm of water above the bulgar wheat line.
After all this was done I simply put it all together in a bowl and ate it far too quickly because it was so scrummy!!If you have any awesome recipes like this or tried this please let me know! I love hearing from you all. X
