DIRECTIONS:

1. Cook bulgar wheat/quinoa according to package.

2. While it’s cooking chop all vegetables, parsley, mint, garlic and lemon zest. Combine in a bowl set aside


3. Mix olive oil, lemon juice, and salt for dressing


4. Combine cooked bulgar wheat/ quinoa, all vegetables, lemon zest, garlic, mint in a bowl


5. Crumble walnuts and feta


5. Garnish with chopped parsley


7. Pour dressing on top and enjoy. ;)

NOTE: If you use water INSTEAD of the vegetable broth to cook the bulgar wheat/quinoa then ADD 2 teaspoons of salt to the water when cooking.

If raw onions do not agree with you, try sautéing they onion for 5-6 minutes instead of adding it raw. Sautéing the onion breaks down the natural chemical process in the onion that upsets people’s stomachs.
