Harissa Sweet Pepper Bulgur

This recipe is perfect when you want something slightly lighter but something that also packs a punch. The harissa comes at you hard in this recipe but the sweet pepper and preserved lemons give such a contrast it’ll be a staple for when you want something quick, easy but (more importantly) extra delicious too.

  • 1 preserved lemon, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 tsp harissa paste

  • 80g fine bulgur wheat


  1. Start by preparing the bulgur according to the packet and set aside.
  2. Mix the harissa together with the olive oil in a small bowl and drizzle over the prepared bulgur.
  3. Add all the remaining ingredients, mix thoroughly and serve.
