Lis and Ivonne are having a party and everyone is invited. They are such busy little bloggers they've asked us all to bring some food to share. In New Zealand this is called a Pot Luck dinner or Bring a Plate.
I'm taking this Beetroot Tabouli. The Laughing Gastronome posted this idea on her blog last week . I tried it out on the family who pronounced it a huge success. You'll love it too.
Visit Emma's blog to see her version.
Salt and pepper
The amounts will depend on much salad you wish to make. In the above platter I used a cup of bulgar wheat and four beetroot.
For each 1/4 cup bulgar wheat add 1/4 cup boiling water. Rest for 10 minutes.
Wrap beetroot in foil and roast for 1 hour at 160C. Cool, peel and cut into cubes.
Add oil, lemon juice, chopped herbs and salt and pepper to soaked bulgar wheat.
Taste and adjust as required.
Stir through beetroot cubes.
Place salad on platter.
Sprinkle crumbled fetta over.
Add onion slices.
I wrote this post a couple of days ago ready to enter into Ivonne's La Festa al Fresco before I went on holiday. When I was ready to post this I checked Emma's blog and under the comments discovered Bea had made and posted the same salad. Before I made the Beetroot Tabouli I emailed Emma to ask if she minded if I took her creation to Ivonne's party. She very kindly said she didn't mind. I hope Bea doesn't mind also.
