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 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.
