25g Bulghur Wheat
2 large On-the-Vine Tomatoes
1 large bunch of fresh Flat-leaf Parsley, leaves washed, dried and finely chopped
6 small fresh Mint leaves, washed, dried and finely chopped
1 small Red Onion, peeled and finely diced
2-3 tbsp fresh Lemon Juice
2-3 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Sea Salt


Fill and boil a kettle of water, then put the bulghur wheat in a small bowl and cover with 50ml of the boiling water. Stir well, then set aside for about 20 minutes, until the wheat has absorbed all of the water. Remove the green stalks from the tomatoes and make a small cross at the base of each fruit. Place the tomatoes in a separate bowl of boiling water, ensuring each is submerged fully. Wait for 30 seconds, then drain away the water. When the tomatoes are cool, peel them and discard the skins. Cut the tomatoes into quarters, then discard the seeds. Dice the remaining flesh and transfer it to a serving bowl.

Add the parsley, mint and red onion to the serving bowl, and mix until well combined with the tomatoes. When the bulgur wheat is ready, separate the grains with a fork and then add the wheat to the tomato mixture. Drizzle over the olive oil, add the lemon juice and season to taste with the salt. Mix well to ensure all the ingredients are coated evenly, then serve.
