Mexican Spiced Grain Bowl – LEAH ITSINES

Mexican Spiced Grain Bowl

I LOVE POWER BOWLS! Instead of rice, I swapped for Macro Australian Bulgar Wheat, only at @woolworths_au which is a source of fibre and protein! The best thing is....all you need to do is soak it in boiling water for 10 minutes and drain...so no water ratios need to be guessed here haha!! This recipe is perfect for a dinner party because you can prep all the ingredients (plus more!) and everyone can choose to make their own bowls, meaning EVERYONE is happy (including the kiddos!). If you wanted, you could add some chickpeas, shredded chicken or some cooked beef strips!
