We recently sent out some recipe packs to some of our members with the challenge to either follow our recipe or to make their own.
Our member Preeti took our roasted vegetable and bulgur traybake and adapted it to make it her own. She also added a delicious mint yoghurt dip. Well done Preeti!
Here is a video on our YouTube channel of Mandy making her original bulgur traybake recipe:
Here’s Preeti’s recipe:
250g bulgur wheat
3 medium size onions
2 -3 cloves of garlic
2-3 medium size carrots
half red cabbage

Prepare your vegetables first. Slice your onion, chop garlic cloves, cut courgette and carrots into half moons. Slice the bigger pieces of broccoli (you can eat the stems too) and cut half of your cabbage up into small pieces.
Put the chopped onion, garlic, courgette, carrots and broccoli into your roasting tin. As you add the red cabbage separate the leave .
Add 1 tbsp olive oil, black pepper and salt to taste and stir everything well. Put the tray in the oven for around 30 minutes, or until the vegetables are cooked.

Take another pan and add 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp ground cumin seeds, your tin of chopped tomatoes and the coriander paste. Stir well and cook for five mins, add roasted vegetables.
Drain and rinse the butter beans and add to the dish stir again and cook for 1 minute.
