I have prepared here an easy option to cook. You can combine any vegetables you want but I have added as followed:

Get ready: (4-6 servings)

  • bulgur wheat 1.5 glass
  • 2 medium white onions sliced
  • 1 red pepper bell cut on squares
  • 1 green pepper bell cut on squares
  • 1 aubergine cut small pieces
  • few baby corns cut on half or three pieces
  • 2 inches of sliced fresh ginger
  • 2 tbs of thyme
  • 2 tbs of sage
  • 1 inch of fresh red chili
  • Himalayan salt
  • 3 tbs of hemp oil
  • 1 tbs of coconut oil
  • spring onion for serving
  • fresh coriander for serving

Cook the bulgur in salted water as on the package and leave on the side.

Preheat the coconut oil on the saucepan and throw in the thyme and sage for a couple of seconds. Next add onions, chili and ginger. Fry for few minutes until onions get slightly cooked stirring once for a while. Add peppers and aubergine. Add a few spoons of water and let it cook. You can season it with salt now and let it soften. Cook it on medium heat, when the vegetables get soft enough, turn on the high heat and roast t slightly. Add the baby corns now and fry for a couple of minutes, stirring once for a while. Do not let the vegetables to burn out. Season with salt again and add the cooked bulgur wheat. Mix well, add hemp oil and coriander leaves. Let it cook for another 2-4 minutes stirring in at all the time. Serve with fresh spring onions. I love to add few leaves of fresh rocket and spinach on the side sprinkled with hemp oil.

Enjoy
