Bulgur is a cook’s best friend

Bulgur has to be one of a cook’s best friends. Why? It’s economical, it’s a loaded-with-fiber whole grain and there is no cooking required (just a presoak)! Bulgur is a grain to turn to when it’s hot and you don’t want to turn on the stove. Of course, you can cook it by adding it to soups and stews or in a pilaf. Instead of oatmeal, top soaked bulgur with yogurt and fruit for breakfast.

Chewy, earthy wheat kernels, it is the grain used in Tabouleh salad. Tabouleh is a Middle Eastern dish of bulgur, parsley, mint, tomatoes, olive oil and lemon juice. Add flavor and crunch with cucumber, chopped green or red onion, coriander and cumin.

Presoak

For each cup of bulgur, add an equal amount of water and let stand for an hour.

  • It’s a great way to use the herbs in your garden.
  • You can use those tired peppers in the fridge. Just like our skin needs moisture, so do wrinkled peppers. In a glass bowl, microwave peppers, covered with lid, with a couple tablespoons of water for 3-4 minutes to soften. Remove the lid and let them cool until they’re easy to handle. The stuff them with the salad.
