Bulgur for Breakfast

Updated: Feb 25, 2021

I have to admit, when I poured out my first cup of Bulgur I was skeptical. It looked like brown gravel... more like something you'd put in the bottom of a fish tank than your breakfast bowl.

Why did I insist on torturing myself for breakfast? Bulgur has so many healthy benefits it has been named a superfood. It is packed with vitamins, minerals, and fiber plus it has 6 grams of proteins per serving.

So I pushed aside my skepticism and pressed on. Can I just say wow? This delightfully light, but filling, nutty bowl of goodness was not at all what I was expecting. But here I am actually enjoying this bowl of Bulgur and scraping the bottom of my bowl as I blog.


1 Cup Bulgar Wheat

2.5 Cups Water

1/4 Cup Brown Sugar

1/2 tsp Salt

1 Cup Sliced Almonds

1 Cup Blueberries

1 Cup Strawberries sliced


Rinse Bulgar in a colander and place in small pan.

Add water and salt, cover, and let sit for 1 hour.

Bring to boil, then reduce to simmer for 12 minutes.

When done cooking, add brown sugar to taste.

Top with fresh sliced strawberries, blueberries and almonds.
