I wanted to give a shout about bulgur which is a commonly used cereal food in the Middle East. It is made from wheat and is very versatile and compared to unenriched white rice, bulgur has more fiber and protein, a lower glycemic index, and higher levels of most vitamins and minerals.
I think the nutty taste is much better than the rather bland couscous.
Here is a popular recipe in our house:
Bring 5 dl water to boil and add 250 grams of bulgur.
Let this boil for about 5 mins - test to ensure the bulgur has gone soft.
Drain well and bring to a bowl.
While the bulgur is cooking, fry some
chop up some parsley.
Add this along with some
to the cooked bulgur and
season to taste.
