  • 1.

    Fill the kettle and boil it. Fill a pan with hot water from the kettle. Add a pinch of salt. Cover. Bring back to the boil. Rinse the bulgar wheat. Add to the pan. Pop on the lid. Simmer for 8-10 mins till tender. Drain well and pop into a bowl.

    Heat the oven to 180°C/Fan 160°C/Gas 4. While the bulgar wheat cooks, trim the spring onions. Finely slice them. Peel and grate or crush the garlic. Rinse the winter purslane. Pat dry.

    Pick the leaves off the parsley and mint sprigs. Finely chop them. Finely grate or pare the zest from the lime. Juice it. Pop it all into the bowl with the bulgar wheat.
