Zeynep’s Secrets – Super Healthy Bulgur Salad

Today I want to share with you the recipe to a super healthy salad, known as Kisir.
Kisir is the Turkish name of the Bulgur salad and very popular in Turkey.
Bulgur is a form of wheat. It is low in calories and fat, rich in protein and fibre, rich in mineral magnesium and helps reduce weight.

This is what you need:

– 2 cups of Bulgur / wheat
– 4 cups of boiling water
– 1 cup of olive oil
– 1 table spoon of tomato and paprika paste
– 1 tea spoon of paprika powder
– 1 onion
– 2 tomatoes if you wish
– Parsley
– Spring onions
– Lettuce
– 2 lemons
– 1/2 cup of olive oil
– Spices & seasoning (salt, black pepper, paprika, cumin)
– Dill
– Mint

FirstBulgur Salad wash the Bulgur and add 1 cup of Bulgur into a bowl. Add 1 cup of boiling water to the bowl, close the lid and wait for 10 min.

Meanwhile start chopping the parsley, onion, spring onions, mint, and dill into little pieces.

After 10 min the Bulgur should have absorbed the water. Now you can start adding the tomato and paprika paste, lemon juice, olive oil, the spices and then all the greens which you chopped earlier.

Mix it all well with your fingers.

Now take one piece of lettuce and one table spoon of the salad, wrap it in the lettuce and enjoy!

What a roller coaster year!

2015 is over and I have only great memories! This year felt like a super roller coaster without ever slowing down.
I was very lucky to have hosted yoga workshops in London and abroad, presented for two big yoga channels, been part of many Hollywood films and met plenty of inspiring souls.

I would like to thank everyone who supported me on my path to get to where I am and to everyone who attended one of my classes. I hope to see you again next year.

I am super excited for the new year with more events, workshops in London, abroad and retreats to come. Please stay tuned on my social media channels for further info.
