Surprisingly Delicious Sleek

Searching for a healthy and nutritious meal. Try this Sleek.


Course: Vegetarian

Cuisine: Syrian / Lebanese


  • 2 bundles pak choi
  • 1 cup black eyed peas
  • 1 cup bulgur wheat cous cous or quinoa, soaked
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste optional
  • 3 cups water for pak choi


  • Wash and chop the pak choi leaves discarding the white stalks. Place in 3 cups boiling water until wilted.
  • Drain and set aside.
  • Pressure cook the black eyed peas for 18 minutes. Drain.
  • In a large bowl mix the black eyed peas, bulgur wheat, pak choi, black pepper and salt.
  • In a medium sized pot heat the olive oil and caramelize the onions.
  • Note: As I’ve said before caramelizing onions is easy. Just take your time and let them brown slowly until you get the desired colour. I like mine light brown.
  • When the desired colour is reached add the mixture of black eyed peas and pak choi and toss for about 2 – 3 minutes.
  • Optionally, pour the Sleek into a dish afterward. Allow to cool. Serve.
