Bulghur With Red Pepper and Peas

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by zeldaz51

A quick whole-grain side dish. The bulghur will be slightly al dente; if you prefer it softer, add 1/4 c. more liquid and cook an extra 5 minutes. From "Diabetes Cooking for Everyone", by Carol Gelles. Exchanges: 1/2 bread, 3/4 vegetable, 1/4 fat.

You just cannot go wrong with bulgur! I served this as my entire lunch by itself. I will be making this often. I like to use bulgur in place of rice and it is much quicker and easier to cook as well as having protein in it as well.
