This is just beautiful for sitting outside with on a summer’s lunchtime but it can also evoke sunny days eaten indoors mid-winter.
Gorgeous strong flavours from the feta and onion, combined with bulgur wheat or wholewheat couscous. This epitomises the Mediterranean diet that Nuush builds its nutrition around.
This makes a really good packed lunch too.
Place the bulgur wheat in an ovenproof dish and cover to 1.5 cm above the surface with boiling water. Microwave uncovered, on full power, for ten mins. Or, if you have more time, cook it on the hob as per instructions on the pack. If using couscous cover it with boiling water to 1cm above its level, cover and leave to stand for six mins, then fork it fluffy!
Place the cooked grain in a serving dish and add all the other ingredients and gently combine using salad spoons
Cucumber falls into the same family as melon and is a good source of flavonoids, vitamin K and molybdenum. Molybdenum, acts like a catalyst to many processes that take place in the body, such as the action of certain enzymes – a spark plug if you will. With its skin kept on it’s also a good source of fibre to nourish your vitally important gut microbes.
Red onions are a not only a great source of the antioxidant, quercitin but are rich in flavonoids, which are responsible for their colour. Flavonoids are compounds found in plants that offer them protection agains the elements and against disease and they pass that quality on to us. Another good source of fibre, onions provide food for the microbes in your gut, which in turn produce beneficial fatty acids.
