Bulgur Lovin'!

>> Sunday, September 6, 2009

There are lots of interesting options for carbohydrate accompaniments to your meal besides rice, pasta, and potatoes out there, and one of my new found favorites is bulgur!

Bulgur is a cereal food made from several different wheat species, but most often from durum wheat. It is usually sold parboiled, dried and de-branned, but whole-grain, high-fiber bulgur can be found in natural food stores. Bulgur has a light, nutty flavor, and finds its home in many Turkish, Middle Eastern, Indian and Mediterranean dishes.

Here is my latest invention!

1 cup bulgur (dry)
2 peppers, each of a different color (green, yellow, red, or orange), chopped
1/2 small onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, crushed
one big handful of parsley, chopped
1-2 tbsp lemon juice (to taste)
1 tsp each cinammon and cumin
ground pepper and a touch of salt, to taste
3 packs of Splenda (1g each)

Cook the bulgur as per package directions, but using water only (don't use any oil, even if cooking instructions recommend it - you don't need it!). Put veggies in a bowl and add the bulgur. Add remaining ingredients, stir, and enjoy!

Makes 6 servings.
