    Debbwl's Note:

    Bulgur is a light whole wheat grain that is a good substitute for rice. It can be cooked or soaked. *I prefer cooked but am posting direction to both here. Have a friend that is new to whole grain cooking and has asked if I would post some basic cooking directions.

      Many times, with recipes like this I have a difficult time deciding which to prepare, so . . . I did 'em both ~ Cooked half a batch & soaked half a batch! We, too, much preferred the cooked bulgur, but still, the soaked version was very acceptable, & both do make for a nice change from the often-served rice! Thanks for sharing it!

      Simple, healthy and great tasting. I always have bulgur on hand but, for some reason, highly underuse it. I don't know why because I really like it and it's always a welcome break from rice and potatoes. I paired this with a North African seasoned beef stew for DH and I enjoyed just the bulgur cooked as directed with just a 1/2 tsp of butter on it. It was easy on a tummy that was feeling a bit off last night. Thanks Deb :D

      I tried the new way: soaked bulgur.
      Thanks Debbwl, this came out perfect, not to dry, not to wet and fluffy! I think that for this way a not oversized bowl is convenient.
      My daughter found out that I prepared the bulgur with a new method and she found it wonderful!
      In this way everybody can prepare a warm lunch in the office. You only need hot water to the dry ingredient/s! Perhaps you can add some salt, pepper, dry-roasted onions and a teaspoon tomato paste to the bulgur in advance. After soaking it with hot water you have a ready meal! Why not?

      I prepared the bulgur plain with a fava bean stew (fried onions, cooked fava beans, celery stalk, white wine, salt, pepper and a tomato paste).
