Lamb chops, simply grilled, bulgar with vegetables, spring greens

Bulgar with vegetables
Another of my favourites tonight- bulgar wheat with vegetables, very simple to make. First, put bulgar in a bowl and pour enough hot water to cover by about an inch and a half. (200g of dried bulgar is more than enough for 2 people.) Let soak for about half an hour, adding more water if necessary. Meanwhile soften a chopped onion, diced carrot and strips of red pepper. Add chopped garlic and cook another couple of minutes. Put in 1 tsp smoked paprika then tip in the bulgar, some salt and half a tin chopped tomatoes. Stir well, cover and cook over low heat for 20 minutes.
I tend to use onion, carrot and red pepper as the basic flavourings. Sometimes I add different flavourings such as harissa paste, or oregano, or sundried tomatoes.
