Durum Salad


I’m not sure if you know the brand “Ebly” or if they sell it where you live. It is precooked durum wheat and just perfect if you want a change from pasta or rice. It also tastes like a cross of both and goes really well with all kinds of dishes.


But enough background information – time to head to the kitchen:


It is a wonderful recipe for those days when it’s actually way too hot to eat anything at all. And the best thing: It’ll take just half an hour to “cook”! [ If you have a bit more patience: Let it sit in the fridge for an hour or so. ]

Okay, here we go:


Durum Salad

4 servings

  • 2 cooking bags Ebly / durum wheat (à 125g)
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 red pepper
  • 150g cheese (Gouda or Emmental, but it’s up to you)
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 200 g yoghurt
  • lemon juice


Cook Ebly according to directions in plenty of salted water (for about 10 minutes). Drain and leave to cool down. Wash and dice cucumber, pepper and tomatoes. Dice cheese as well.

Combine yoghurt, oil, lemon juice, sugar, salt and pepper. Season dressing to your taste. Mix Ebly, veggies and cheese in a big bowl. Add dressing, stir well and let it rest for at least 10 minutes.


You see, it doesn’t always have to be difficult to be yummy. Especially after a long, exhausting day when you don’t feel like cooking at all. So no need to bother the pizza delivery next door.

Do you also have some of those “Don’t really feel like cooking” recipes?


Have a lovely week!
