READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by VegSocialWorker

From Change the list of ingredients to suit your own tastes, keeping the ratio of bulgur to water. We liked it with walnuts, dried cranberries, brown sugar, a splash of milk, cinnamon and cardamom. The serving size depends on how much you eat. It served two of us perfectly.

I was looking for something other than oatmeal for breakfast, and I was very happy with this selection. I made the bulgur as directed, but only added a bit of sugar-free maple syrup and some leftover cooked apples. I did put a pinch of salt in the cooking water. I don't think it needed anything else.
