Superfood Smoked Chicken, Quinoa & Bulgur Salad


Prep Time: 



  • 2 - 4 People



1/2 a Smoked Chicken, sliced (I bought mine from James Whelan Butchers, available to purchase online)

A large handful green beans, blanched & cooled quickly to retain their green colour & nutrients

50g peas, fresh or frozen, blanched & cooled quickly to retain their green colour & nutrients

½ a  cucumber, diced

A handful of alfalfa sprouts

3 tblsp toasted pumpkin & sunflower seeds

1 avocado, chopped

50g red quinoa ( I like  red quinoa as it has a nuttier texture but feel free to use white, I prefer to cook it for less time than most packs state as I find it can become soggy)

50g cooked bulghur wheat, room temperature

Small handful flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped

Small handful mint, roughly chopped

2 tblsp lemon juice

3 tblsp extra virgin olive oil


A fresh-tasting lunchtime or light evening meal with the added benefit of being really quite good for you by The Tasty Tart! It is quick to put together but the flavours pack a punch and leave you feeling nicely satisfied. The avocado, parsley, alfalfa sprouts, peas ,green beans & seeds provide plenty of vitamins, minerals, good fats (avocado) and plant nutrients while Quinoa has a very high protein & fibre content but the bulghur provides your carbs-a meal in one bowl!  

Simply combine all the ingredients above and check for seasoning! Seemples
