- A Delicious, Quick, Hearty Grain
I LOVE the rich, slightly toasted wheat flavor and light texture of this product. It can easily be eaten at every meal of the day!
Once the water boils, it takes a scant 20 minutes to cook and is extraordinarily versatile. (Any veggie, meat, sauce or spice can be added to make an infinite number of culinary variations!) I buy the giant 25lb bag to save money. It keeps beautifully in the freezer for at least a year.
(It would probably keep longer than that, but I usually eat it all in just a few months!)
It's a large part of the base of my food pyramid - a good, whole food.
- My favorite breakfast!
- I think I might be addicted to this! I eat it 3-4 times a week for breakfast. Put a little olive oil in the water as it is boiling. Then only add a dash of salt and pepper (sometimes garlic pepper) and a teaspoon of butter. I tried it without butter today and that is good, too, and better for me! I usually make two servings and store half for the next day. Add a little water and reheat in the microwave and it's as good as the first day. Good stuff!
- I love this stuff
- I order this in the 25# bag break it up and pop the bags in the freezer for a longer shelf life.I use this at least 3 times a week and usually more often.When I want it as a snack or make it into a salad I take a cup of bulgar and add 1.75 cups of boiling water to it (with a pinch of salt in the water) Cover it tightly and leave it on the counter overnight.. the next morning its the perfect texture.I also use it a great deal as a grain in wheat bread, I will take 1 cup of bulgar, then add 6oz of room temp water, cover it tightly and leave it on the counter overnight. It has a nice soft but chewy texture to add into bread for the next day.I have never been disappointed with Bob's quality!!!!!
- Staple in my pantry
- I combine bulgur with white rice to make a healthier dish with more flavor and fibre. More people have asked for my "recipe"!
