Bulgur and Butternut Squash

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by kelly in TO

Bulgur is more nutritious than rice and couscous, and you can use it in so many recipes, i.e. soups, baking, pilafs, or as stuffing. This recipe is a take off of the more traditional barley and squash dish, but it's healthier, lower in fat and wonderful. This is also a low glycemic dish. You can serve this as a side to meat, or serve as is with a side salad and some apple slices.

Really good with goat cheese instead of feta, too. I liked the unusual combination of flavors (sage, cheese, bulgur, squash). I'm not normally much of a butternut squash fan, but this recipe helped me overcome my irrational aversion.
