When you have driven for 3 hours in the pouring rain and finally arrived home in one piece, thank goodness. You feel ravenous with an appetite so big you could ‘eat a horse’.
You reach for the refrigerator and there’s nothing there within reach that would satisfy your humongous appetite. What’s your natural reaction?
Reach for the phone and call your favourite take-away facility for a delivery that will take care of your appetite, right? No, we would do no such thing.
It doesn’t take a lot of work to cobble a meal together. Once I had a peek in my kitchen cupboard and I see something remotely resembling bulgur wheat, and a further peek into my refrigerator and green peas come into view, then I know I’m sorted.
With those two key ingredients, I know I could rustle up something together very quickly that is just as delicious as it is satisfying too.

How to make the egg fried bulgur wheat with green peas
>> Slice up your onions, garlic, tomato and sweet peppers (bell peppers). Break eggs, sprinkle some salt on the eggs and whisk them.
>> Pour twice the amount of water in relation to the amount of bulgur wheat into a cooking pot. So, I am talking about a ratio of 2:1.water to bulgur wheat. Heat up water and allow to boil. Add the vegetable stock powder to the boiling water and stir together to make a broth.
>> Pour the bulgur wheat into the boiling vegetable broth. Stir together and allow to cook for about 12 minutes checking every now and again, to ensure the broth does not dry up before the bulgur wheat is properly cooked. You may need to add some more water if the bulgur isn’t done yet.
>> When the bulgur wheat is nearly cooked and the water beginning to dry up, add the green peas and stir together. Allow to cook for about 2 minutes. Set bulgur wheat with green peas combo aside.
>> In a skillet or wok, pour in 3 tablespoons of rapeseed oil and turn on heat.
>> Add the onions and garlic. Stir together and let fry for about 1 minute.
>> Add the tomato and sweet pepper (bell pepper) and stir.
>> Add your seasoning agents – salt, turmeric and cinnamon and stir together. Allow to cook for another minute.
>> Add the eggs to the veggie fry up and stir for about a minute.
>> Now pour the previously cooked bulgur wheat and peas combo into skillet with the veggie stir-fry. Mix all the content of the skillet together by stirring. Let cook for another minute whilst stirring every now and again. Turn off heat.
That’s it. Your egg fried bulgur wheat with green peas is ready.
It’s time to feast your eyes and feast your mouth.
