A fresh-tasting lunchtime or light evening meal with the added benefit of being really quite good for you by The Tasty Tart! It is quick to put together but the flavours pack a punch and leave you feeling nicely satisfied. The avocado, parsley, alfalfa sprouts, peas, green beans & seeds provide plenty of vitamins, minerals, good fats (avocado) and plant nutrients while Quinoa has a very high protein & fibre content but the bulghur provides your carbs-a meal in one bowl!


  • 1/2 a Smoked Chicken, sliced (I bought mine from James Whelan Butchers, available to purchase online)
  • A large handful of green beans, blanched & cooled quickly to retain their green colour & nutrients
  • 50g peas, fresh or frozen, blanched & cooled quickly to retain their green colour & nutrients
  • ½ a  cucumber, diced
  • A handful of alfalfa sprouts
  • 3 tbsp toasted pumpkin & sunflower seeds
  • 1 avocado, chopped
  • 50g red quinoa ( I like  red quinoa as it has a nuttier texture but feel free to use white, I prefer to cook it for less time than most packs state as I find it can become soggy)
  • 50g cooked bulghur wheat, room temperature
  • Small handful flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped
  • Small handful mint, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
