My Aussie husband and I went to an amazing Lebanese restaurant called Haz during our lunch break. They had a great lunch deal on so we ordered that. I had Kisir and vegetable moussaka and my husband ordered hummus and lamb tagine. Both dishes were tasty, in fact Kisir was so tasty that I got an inspiration to find a recipe and try to make one of my own. I made it last night and it turned out to be pretty nice and refreshing. Next time I would add mint in the recipe as I am a big fan of mint. I would also add some olive oil and garlic to the original recipe so below you find the tweaked version of the recipe.
4dl (2 cups) bulghur wheat (fine or medium grade)
1/2 bunch spring onions, chopped
1/2 cucumber chopped
1 tbs fresh dill chopped
2 tbs parsley chopped
(1 tbs mint finely chopped)
1/2 clove of garlic pressed
juice from 1 lemon
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 red capsicum/pepper
3 tbs tomato paste
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1. Cook the bulghur in a boiling water until soft.
2. Chop all the greenies, combine the ingredients together and mix well. In the end add the bulghur.
3. Try the flavour and add some spices if needed.
4. Put it to the fridge to cool and serve when nice and chilled.
