  • 300g bulgur wheat
  • 2-3 de-seeded sweet pointed ramiro peppers
  • 1 large white onion
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 2 tblspns extra virgin olive oil
  • to taste salt & pepper
  • 1-2 (de-seeded) chillie (birds eye if possible)

Recipe Method

Slice the ramiro peppers in half, then remove all the seed and place on a baking tray. Chop the onion into four pieces, and add to the tray. Add the garlic (whole with skin) and chillies (whole). Coat everything well with the olive oil, then place in a pre-heated oven at 200 degrees C (fan) 190 (non-fan) for around 30-40 minutes until the peppers are beginning to caramlise around the edges. Remove the garlic and chillies after 15 minutes to stop them becoming overcooked.

Cook the bulgur wheat as per the packet instructions (I use the same absorbtion method as for rice - 2 parts wheat to one of water, then bring to the boil, put on the lid and simmer till all the water in absorbed).

Once the peppers are cooked, chop each half into two, and add to a bowl with the bulger wheat, followed by the onion. Chop the chillie and mix into the bowl. Finally remove the skin (or squeeze out of the skin) from the roasted garlic and mix into the wheat. Serve and enjoy :-)

    Lovely, made these as a side for the lamb kofta's (which were really delicious as well!). Too much for us though so we had it as a tasty lunch the next day.
