My own pot of gold
Sometimes you just throw ingredients together and it works
I love experimenting with food, throwing things together, I rarely follow recipes exactly, it’s just the way I like to cook. As a vegan, one of the few things I have to be really vigilant I’m not missing is B12. This dish has it in abundance
Butternut, beetroot and chard bulgar
1 butternut squash (chopped finely)
2 handful of chard
2 cups bulgar
1 cup nooch (nutritional yeast)
1- make dressing by blending 2 handfuls of basil, 1 cup olive oil, 5 cloves of garlic and 1/2 cup nooch
2 - boil the bulgar - 1 cup water per cup bulgar. Bring to boil in a heavy based saucepan, then reduce to a simmer till water absorbed and bulgar fluffy, add 1/2 cup nooch one done.
3 - place the chopped veg into individual oven dishes, cover in basil dressing. Roast at 220• for 50 minutes
4 - mix the bulgar and the veggies together
5 - eat hot or cold
great as a side dish
