Hi guys! Its Foodie Friday and today I am sharing another cool recipe from Disney’s Cookabout that was featured on their recent shows. The cooking show sees kids learn where our food comes from, visiting farms around the country before heading back to the kitchen to learn to cook with the ingredients.

Add the bulgur wheat, quinoa and the water to a medium sized saucepan and bring to the boil on medium heat. Add some salt.

Cook for 15 minutes with lid on the saucepan until all the liquid has been absorbed.
