Beetroot, Green Bean and Orange salad

Beetroot, Green Bean and Orange salad

with Bulgur Wheat and Feta

Sweet, with an earthy caramel taste, beetroot is great in a salad. Pairing this versatile purple veg with orange and greens creates a salad full of vivid colours. The robust flavour of orange works really well with mint, as does the tart and tangy feta cheese that is crumbled over the salad. Served on a bed of bulgur wheat, the chewy texture of this grain makes it a great partner for stronger flavours in the fruit and veggies. There’s zero compromise on flavour in this dish!

In the meantime, trim the green beans.Pick the mint leaves from their stalks and roughly chop (discard the stalks).Peel the orange and cut in half. Slice widthways into 1cm wide half-moons.Crumble the feta. Chop each beetroot into 6 segments. Fill a saucepan with water and bring to the boil (for the beans later on).

Once the onions have caramelised, stir in the cumin and cook for 1 minute. Pour the water for the bulgur (see ingredients for amount) into the pan and bring to the boil. Once boiling, stir in the bulgar wheat, bring back up to the boil, pop a lid on the pan and remove from the heat. Leave to the side for 12-15 mins or until ready to serve.

Meanwhile, once the water is boiling, add the beans and a 0.5 tsp of salt. Boil until just tender, 3-4 mins. Once cooked, drain in a sieve and run under cold water to cool. Set to one side.
