Bulgur with Roasted Pointed Cabbage
Bulgur with Roasted Pointed Cabbage


Make a dressing by combining the sunflower oil, dijon mustard and freshly ground pepper.
Finely cut the spring, pointed cabbage and put in an oven tray.
Drizzle the dressing over the cabbage and sprinkle the fennel seeds on top.

Roast in a 200C (gas mark 6) for around 10 - 15 minutes. The roasting time depends on how finely you've cut the cabbage: very fine roast for 10 minutes or less, the coarser cut the longer the roasting time.

Put the bulgur in a pan with water, bring to a boil and boil for 15 minutes.

Mix together the roasted cabbage, cooked bulgur, red pesto  and chopped mint and season with salt and pepper.
