Marcia's Bulgur Wheat Salad

This recipe was given to me by the nanny of the boy I tutor. It makes a delicious light accompaniment to a main meal and is easily transportable for a picnic. Personally, I prefer bulgur wheat to cous cous - it's far less 'cardboardy' and has a better texture.

Serves 6 as a side for dinner

500g bulgur wheat
10 spring onions
small bunch of fresh mint
3 lemons
3 tbs olive oil
1 tsp Bouillon vegetable stock powder
1 punnet of baby plum tomatoes

1. Add the bulgur wheat to a large bowl and cover it fully with boiling water. Add the bouillon to the bowl and stir. Cover with cling film. Leave to stand for 30 minutes.
2. Chop the mint, spring onions and tomatoes finely.
3. Juice the three lemons.
4. Combine all of the ingredients in one bowl.
