Welcome to Syria – Herby Bulgur with Muhamara



Not much fun going on in Syria lately ( a long lately unfortunately…) I wish there was something like a peace-dish.
This would be mine! So stop fighting, sit down and enjoy your delicious culinary marvels!!

Be aware of dismembering a Pomegranate… I had a tiny civil culinary war in my kitchen: pink walls, cupboards , sweater (and YES I decided to put my newest sweater on for the occasion…) If someone has a recipe to take out those stains, please let me know 😦

Here we go:

For the Bulgur, easy-peasy boil 1 cup of water and add 1 cup of Bulgur. Leave to cool down. The Bulgur absorbs all the water! Don’t forget to season.
Take all the fresh herbs you can get your hands on (mint, basil, dill, parsley ) and chop very fine. Add to the cooled down Bulgur with some good quality olive oil!

Roast 2 red peppers in a very hot oven until you see them turning black, take of the peels and put into a food processor together with lemon juice, roasted walnuts, 1 tsp of cumin seed, 1 crushed clove of garlic , 1 tbsp of Tahini and a tiny bit of Harrisa.

Add some fresh crunchy veggies, I used green asparagus and radishes.

Great for a summer day!
