Method

  1. Put the bulgur wheat into a sieve and rinse under cold water. Tip into a large pan and pour over a kettle-full of boiling water. Place over a high heat and simmer for 20 minutes, until tender. Drain, then rinse with cold water and drain well again. Set aside.
  2. Put the chilli, spinach, spring onions, coriander stalks and three-quarters of the leaves into a food processor, with half the olive oil and half the lime juice. Blitz to a paste, then stir into the bulgar wheat. Spoon onto a platter.
  3. Preheat a griddle pan over a high heat. Griddle the pepper and peach slices for about 5 minutes, until lightly charred. Scatter them over the bulgar wheat.
  4. Add the avocado chunks to the salad along with the remaining lime juice and feta. Drizzle with olive oil, scatter over the remaining coriander leaves and serve with lime wedges.
