Hello lovelies, I’m very pleased about the positive feedback on my new category. I’m always glad to find easy, quick and healthy recipes for my family. As a food blogger you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, but also a lot of time in front of the computer and in the office – to create new recipes and then write them down, edit pictures etc. So a meal I can prepare in 30 minutes is a life saver for me as well. And from now on I will share them with you more regularly.

The next recipe is a coconut bulgur with steamed vegetables. I used coconut milk to boil the bulgur. I admit that my original idea was to use quinoa, but then I realized I didn’t have any more in the house. Getting on an extra supermarket trip just for quinoa doesn’t quite fit into the whole quick recipe’s concept. And that’s why I decided to go with bulgur and it turned out delicious. On the side we had some steamed vegetables, that got its interesting taste from onions, garlic and ginger.

Here is the recipe:

We especially liked the taste of the roasted cashews and a touch of curry. My love for curry of any kind is already well known, you can find some recipes here and here.
