    little_wing's Note:

    I recently discovered bulgur and am a total convert! It has fewer calories, less fat, and more than twice the fiber than brown rice. It's a low on the glycemic index and high in folic acid. AND IT COOKS FASTER THAN RICE. So, if all that doesn't convince you, just try this simple recipe. It has a nice nutty flavor and makes a great side dish to pretty much anything.

      I discovered bulgur last year and I am always on the look out for new ways to cook it. So, I had to give this one a go and I am glad I did because it was easy, tasty and a nice side to some chicken we had tonight. I used low fat margarine instead of the butter and that worked out fine. I think next time I will add a little bit more salt than I used but that is all down to personal taste. Made for the Family Picks section of ZWT4.
