Bulgur is the Bomb!

Bulgur is the Bomb!If you know grains – then you know bulgur. This whole grain packs a powerful nutrition punch: 4 grams of fiber in a 75-calorie 1/2 cup cooked serving.

Bulgur wheat (finely ground) is perhaps the easiest whole grain to make – the ratio is 1:1 – pour equal parts boiling water over bulgur, cover and let stand for 45 minutes. Fluff with a fork if you’re feeling feisty.

Once you have some cooked bulgur on hand, try this quick and easy bulgur salad:

  • 1 cup cooked bulgur
  • 1/4 cup chopped artichoke hearts
  • 1/4 cup chopped, canned roasted red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 Tbs lime juice
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together, chill and serve.

Fact: Makes four 1/2 cup servings.

Opinion: Tastes even better on day 2!
