  • Pyrex Bakeware and Storage Containers



  • cup bulgur wheat 300 g
  • 3 cup stock (or water for babies under 1) 600 ml
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


  • 12 oz shrimp 360g


  • 2 oz parmesan cheese 60g
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Lemon and Herb Flavoring

  • juice ½ small lemon
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 3 tbsp chopped dill


  • Heat the oven. Preheat the oven to 180°C / 350°F.
  • Chop the onion and garlic into small pieces.
  • Oven cook the bulgur. Place the bulgur in a roasting tin and add the chopped garlic, onion, olive oil and black pepper. Pour the stock over it (or water if for babies under 12 months), mix thoroughly and place in the oven for 20 minutes
  • Add shrimp. If using shrimp you add it in for about 5 minutes, until it turns pink. If you are using already cooked shrimp then just add them a minute before you are ready to take out the bulgur.
  • Make it creamy. After 20 minutes once the bulgur has absorbed all the water, remove from the oven and mix in the fats - cheese and more olive oil. The cheese will melt and it will become all creamy.
  • Add the lemon and herb flavoring. Drizzle lemon juice, and stir in the herbs. If you did not use stock or salt yet then salt the part served to parents and toddlers at this stage.
