I made this just as suggested and it was wonderful. It was very easy and so tasty. I really loved this one.
Delicious, easy and low in Carbs
I'm trying to include more grains and less potatoes/pasta in our meals. I had purchased bulgur and gotten chicken out of the freezer for dinner. I searched for someway to use them together and found this recipe. It was easy to make as a week night meal and I paired it with steamed broccoli. I doubled the cumin and cinnamon because we love cumin and such a small amount of cinnamon would have little impact. I also used currents instead of raisins and increased the amount to about 1/4 cup. My 11 year old enjoyed it...said it reminded her of the flavors of oatmeal. I reheated leftovers for lunch, which worked well. But I also think you could eat it as a cold salad.
Bulgur should be with the grains in the grocery store. Trader Joes carries it now (that's what I used) and it should be readily available in a natural foods store as well. It may be labled "bulgur wheat".
I second patriciasfrick's question.
What is bulgur and where (what part of grocery store) do you find it?
Delicious and easy to prepare meal! I love new ways to prepare bulgur and this is now a favorite for my family.
