  • 1 - small red onion, chopped
  • 15ml - olive oil
  • 250ml - bulgur wheat

1. Heat the oil in a small saucepan and fry the onion until glossy. Add the bulgur wheat followed by 500ml water and bring to the boil. Boil for 5 minutes.

2. Turn the heat off. Add the peas to the bulgur wheat, put the lid on the pot and steam for another 5 minutes or until the peas and bulgur wheat are cooked and all the water has been absorbed.
