Bulgur wheat is a very healthy alternative to grain that originated in the Middle East and the Mediterranean.
Before it is packaged and sold, the bulgur grain goes through a process where it is parboiled and then drained from cracked wheat.
Bulgur has a chewy texture, a light nutty flavor, and has many health benefits.
Bulgur can be found in natural food stores. It can be found in large grocery stores, but check the packaging to make sure it hasn’t been stripped of its beneficial bran and germ properties.
Make sure the word ‘enriched’ isn’t included anywhere.
Bulgur cooks very quickly because it’s already pre-cooked making it an ideal and healthy breakfast alternative. Add your preferred hot liquid of choice (milk or water), your favorite toppings, and it’s ready to eat.
Eating 2 cups of bulgur will give you 34 percent of your daily regular fiber requirement, which has been shown to reduce the chance of developing breast cancer as well as other forms of cancer.
Bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Remove from the heat, stir in 1 cup of uncooked bulgur wheat and a pinch of salt. Cover and let stand for 20 minutes. Drain any excess liquid, fluff, and serve.
Bulgur doesn’t need to continually cook over heat (unlike other grains and rice).
You can also add as much water as you like, and it won't impact the grain.
The larger the grain, the more cooking time.
Eating bulgur helps to eliminate chronic inflammation, which fights against many diseases.
