Make your turkey tabbouleh differently

Follow the recipe above, but omit the turkey and add 100g smoked tofu pieces, fried first in a little rapeseed oil. (Nutrition per serving: 193 kcals, protein 13g, carbs 26g, fat 4g, sat fat 1g, fibre 3g, sugar 6g, salt 0.2g).


  1. Heat the grill and line a baking tray with foil. Mix the yogurt, garlic, paprika and a squeeze of lemon, then stir in the turkey. Arrange on the tray.

  2. Meanwhile, cook the bulghar following pack instructions, then add all the remaining ingredients, including the rest of the lemon juice. Grill the turkey for 5-8 mins, then serve hot or cold with the bulghar salad. Will keep in the fridge for 2 days.
