Bulgur wheat and quail eggs salad

Makes 2 portions


  • Bulgur wheat, 70 g
  • Quail eggs, 6
  • Cherry tomatoes, 8
  • Blue cheese, 75 g
  • Baby spinach or rocket salad, 1 handful
  • Salt, pepper
  • Extra virgin oil


  1. Cook 70 grams of bulgur wheat according to package directions. I like to season the water to make the salad more interesting, I put salt, freshly ground pepper, chilli flakes and a pinch of dried basil. You can choose any seasoning to your taste. Cool it slightly down.
  2. Hard boil quail eggs, 4-5 minutes should be more than enough.
  3. Half tomatoes, you can use them fresh or cook in the microwave about 1 minute on medium power.
  4. Build the salad in individual plates - place half of the bulgur in each plate, put half a handful of salad leaves, place halved quail eggs and tomatoes. Crumble blue cheese on top and drizzle with olive oil.
  5. Grind some sea salt and black pepper on top.
