Steamed Bulgar with Grilled Vegetables

cook 20 mins
  • 250 g (8 oz) bulgar wheat
  • 600 ml (1 pint) vegetable stock or boiling water
  • 2 red or green peppers, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 courgettes, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 large onion, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 200 g (7 oz) mushrooms, halved
  • olive, vegetable or flavoured oil (such as chilli oil), for drizzling
  • tzatziki or minty yogurt dip, to serve (optional)
  • Pour the bulgar wheat into a large pan and pour over the stock or boiling water. Heat until simmering and simmer gently, covered, for 7 minutes. Set aside until the liquid has been absorbed.
  • Meanwhile, thread the pieces of vegetables onto 4 long or 8 short metal skewers, then drizzle with a little oil and arrange on the rack of a foil-lined grill tray or a foil-covered baking sheet. Cook under grill preheated to a medium-hot setting for 15–18 minutes, turning occasionally, until the vegetables are just tender and lightly charred.
  • Spoon the steamed bulgar into dishes and serve alongside the veggie skewers. Serve with a dish of tzatziki or minty yogurt dip, if desired.
