Method

  • 1. In a saucepan, bring 1 cup of water to the boil and add bulghur wheat. Cover and cook for 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat and stand for 3-4 minutes, then fluff with a fork. Transfer to a large bowl.

  • 2. In a medium saucepan, heat the remaining cup of water. Add the edamame beans and simmer for 3 minutes. Drain.

  • 3. Add the cooked edamame and remaining ingredients to the bulghur wheat. Whisk together the dressing ingredients and pour over the salad. Toss together and serve.

  • Tip:

  • Bulghur wheat is easy to prepare and a great way to increase your whole grain intake. You can replace the edamame beans with peas, broad beans or snow peas if you wish.
