Bulgur Sprouts Salad
In my last post, I promised you more Recipes with the Nutritious Sprouts & here I am with an Ecstatic Salad Recipe which combines Bulgur Wheat & Sprouts with a Lebanese Flavour which is a Cuisine I am very fond of even being Vegetarian.
I have already given the benefits of Sprouts in my earlier post & the advantages of Bulgur Wheat are also manifold. Known as Dalia /Lapsi na fada it has been used in Indian Cuisine since ages & one more World Cuisine that uses the Bulgur Wheat a lot is the Lebanese.
When traveling to Europe, being a Vegetarian sometime you start looking out for some other options besides pizza & pasta. That’s when my love for Lebanese food started, although people think its mainly non Vegetarian, they have some Delicious Vegetarian Food.
This Bulgur Sprouts Salad is not only super Nutritious but also Amazing with so many flavors bursting together. I have added Pomegranate seeds ( another Lebanese Favourite ) spices like chili powder & cumin powder which make it really Robust.
So let’s get started with the Recipe for
Bulgur Sprouts Salad
