How to use
Bulgur is extremely versatile and easy to use. Some of the most popular applications are:
Pilaf: Bulgur can be used as a base for a delicious pilaf. Sauté onions, garlic, and other vegetables in a bit of olive oil, then add the coarse bulgur and toast it for a few minutes. Add your choice of broth or water, season with herbs and spices, and simmer until the liquid is absorbed and the bulgur is tender.
Tabbouleh Salad: Tabbouleh is a classic Middle Eastern salad made with finely chopped parsley, tomatoes, onions, and soaked bulgur. The coarse bulgur adds a nutty, chewy texture to the salad. Mix it with the other ingredients and dress with olive oil and lemon juice.
Stuffed Vegetables: Coarse bulgur can be used as a filling for stuffed vegetables like bell peppers, tomatoes, or zucchinis. Mix the bulgur with sautéed onions, garlic, herbs, and diced vegetables. Stuff the mixture into the hollowed-out vegetables, and then bake them until they're tender.
