Bulgar Wheat & Bean Salad [VEGAN].

Here's a recipe for a simple, vegan bulgar wheat & bean salad that is perfect for a quick midweek dinner. Click to link to find out more!

After mentioning in my Asian Noodle Salad recipe that I don't really do salads, I've kind of got a taste for their veggie goodness, especially now that spring is here. This last week I wanted something really quick and easy to put together, so I came up with this delicious (even if I do say so myself) bulgar wheat and bean salad that can be thrown together in about 15 minutes - perfect for a weekday dinner.

I've been feeling so inspired lately to eat a healthier diet. In fact for the last couple of weeks I've been feeling really great and I think my diet along with copious amounts of water has a lot to do with that. I honestly think that going vegan has been the best thing for my diet. I've never eaten a diet so nutritionally rich in my life, plus I'm eating foods and meals that I would have never batted and eyelid at before. 

Anyway, enough jibber jabber, let's get down to business...  

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

serves 2 with lunch leftovers

♥ 90g bulgar wheat
♥ 1 can of mixed beans, drained
♥ whatever other veg you fancy e.g. sweetcorn, edamame beans, kale, cucumber, tomato...you get the gyst.
♥ whatever dressing you fancy - I went for balsamic (2tbsp balsamic vinegar, 2bstp olive oil, salt, pepper and a dash of lemon juice)

WHAT TO DO:

♥ Cook the bulgar wheat as per the pack instructions, this is usually to boil it for around 8-10 minutes.
♥ Add the mixed beans and any other veg that you fancy into a large bowl and mix together.
♥ Once cooked, drain the bulgar wheat and add into the bowl, mix to combine with the  other veggies.
♥ Add the dressing of choice and serve - I also decided to garnish with some avocado for some healthy fats.

See, I told you it was super simple. And it tastes so good. Just look at all those colours, it's like eating a freaking rainbow.
