Needing a break from oatmeal I came up with this. It is now one of my husbands favorites.
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup bulgur
- 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1 -2 tablespoon Smart Balance light butter spread, I use Benecol Light Spread
- 2 tablespoons honey
- Bring water to boil. Add bulgur, cover and simmer 20 minutes.
- Stir in applesauce, Benecol, and honey.
- If desired sprinkle with Cinnamon and serve.
Great breakfast! I scaled this to one serving and like another reviewer had to add a bit more water (about 2T) at about the 10 minute mark. This was soft and creamy with just a bit of a bite and the nutty wheat flavor was great with the apple and honey. I did add the cinnamon on top and really enjoyed this hearty and healthy breakfast - thanks for sharing the recipe!
What a welcome change from the daily oatmeal. I loved the texture and bite feel and who doesn't love apple and cinnamon! I do need to say that the water in the amount given here was absorbed in 2 mins and I needed to add a good bit more (sorry I didn't measure what I added)then turned the stove down to the 2 mark for a slow simmer for the next 16 mins. The end result made a great hot breakfast that was well enjoyed.
I gave this five stars, but I did not make it exactly. I used 1/2 cup bulgur and one cup of water. Cooked for ten minutes. Then added 2 T of sliced almonds, 2T of craisins, and 2 t. of maple syrup. It was incredible. I am so excited to find a new breakfast food. I was so worried becauset my bulgur got rancid on the shelf, so I now put it in the frige but it takes up so much room. Now I can use it up. This recipe can be made in a million different ways. Thank you.
