Method
  1. Put the bulgur wheat in a bowl and cover with the boiling water. Cover with a clean tea towel and set aside. Chop all the vegetables and herbs and set aside
  2. Pulse the shallot, mint leaves and bread slices in food processor until all the ingredients are chopped up small
  3. Crumble the feta into breadcrumb sized pieces. Put the mince in a large bowl and add the feta, breadcrumbs mix, salt and garlic paste. Mix it all together with your hands then shape the mixture into small meatballs. Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a pan and fry the meatballs (in batches if necessary) until cooked through - around 20-25m. Shake the pan to brown them evenly. Cut one to check they are cooked through - cook longer if needed. (You can also bake these in the oven for about 30m at 220C.)
  4. Mix the yoghurt, lemon juice/zest, salt and chopped mint leaves in a small bowl
  5. Fluff the bulgar wheat with a fork and add the chopped vegetables and herbs. Toss with the olive oil and lemon juice. Season to taste.
