  • Bulgar is derived from wheat and sold in either coarse, fine, or extra-fine form. The taste and texture is similar to cous cous. It is highly nutritious and makes for a very tasty side dish, snack, or small meal.

Directions:
Step 1) Prepare the bulgar (or cous cous). Basic cooking instructions: 1 cup bulgar to 2 cups of water. Rinse bulgar. Bring water to a boil, add bulgar. Return to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and cook for about 15 minutes until soft.
Step 2) While the bulgar is cooking, chop the tomato into small chunks. Pull the leaves off the parsley and set aside. Dice the onion.
Step 3) When the bulgar is finished, fluff with a fork and add one teaspoon of olive oil. Combine with the chopped ingredients from step 2. Add squirts of lime to taste. Mix and serve.
