Cooking with Bulgur

Bulgur is wheat that’s been parboiled, dried, and cracked into nibbly bits. It cooks fast and tastes good. A Sunday batch can go into soups, salads, and more to boost your weekly whole-grain quotient.

How to Cook
To cook, combine 1 1⁄2 cups medium-grain bulgur and 3 cups water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes or until tender. Drain, if necessary. This will yield 5 cups, so store extra in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Nutrition
A full cup of cooked bulgur has only 150 calories, a hearty 8 grams of fiber, and nearly 6 grams of protein.
