Bulgur Salad

Spicy, sweet, fresh and healthy too: kisir

Add your personal twist to your kisir with countless ingredients. We will help you get started with a delicious recipe packed with grains, but feel free to be more generous with spices if, for example, you like a bit more heat.

Its many vegetables and the fine pre-cooked wheat grains (köftelik Bulgur) make kisir rich in fibre. As such, it is the perfect addition to a healthy diet. They already knew that centuries ago: from Syria and Lebanon, these ingredients, which have a long shelf life, were part of the cargo on merchant ships. Via Turkey, where it is a favourite with the Arab population, the dish found its way to Europe. Originally, it was eaten in a spicy version with a tangy tomato and pepper puree.

Time to get started

  • Put the fine bulgur in a bowl and pour 125 ml of boiling water over it. Leave to rest until the moisture is absorbed and the grains are soft. Did they not soften? Add some more boiling water until they are soft and fall off a fork.
  • In the meantime, chop the parsley, cut the tomatoes into cubes and the red and green pointed peppers into small pieces, shred the red onion and cut the spring onions into rings. Also slice the Romaine lettuce into thin strips.
  • Mix the squeezed lemon juice, olive oil and 1 tablespoon of tomato puree through the bulgur. For more heat, you can mix in some chili flakes.
  • Mix all the vegetables with the bulgur in a salad bowl. Finally, add the pomegranate and olive oil dressing, and salt (to taste).
  • Suggestion: For a refreshing taste, mix in delicious sour pomegranate seeds or/and finely chopped fresh mint leaves.
  • Party suggestion: Serve this healthy dish by scooping it onto small Romaine leaves. Put them on a large serving dish. All guests can help themselves to a healthy 'boat' of deliciousness.
