Author Molly Patrick of Clean Food Dirty Girl


  • 1 cup bulgur 175g
  • 1 cup water 235ml
  • 2 tomatoes about 1 1/4 cups / 235g, diced
  • 1/4 cup red onion 30g, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup parsley 10g, chopped
  • 1/4 cup mint 3g, chopped
  • 1 green onion discard the root end and use the whole thing - green and white parts, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 or 6 turns cracked black pepper


  1. Place the bulgur into a medium-sized mixing bowl and set aside. Measure out 1 cup of water (235ml) and bring it to a boil.
  2. Pour the water over the bulgur and stir.
  3. Place a cover over the bowl and leave it be for one hour (I use a plate to cover the bowl).
  4. After an hour, place the bulgur into a large mixing bowl and add the tomatoes, red onion, parsley, mint, green onion, lemon juice, cumin powder, salt, and pepper.
  5. Gently mix with a wooden spoon so all of the ingredients get incorporated.
