Bulgur, for those that don’t know, is a form of wheat that has been parboiled and broken into smaller particles. Bulgur is popular in Turkish, Middle Eastern and Indian cuisines, and is rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. You cook bulgur in the same way as cous cous: put dry bulgur in a bowl, top with boiling water, cover, let stand for 5-10 minutes and fluff with a fork. In case there is extra water, drain bulgur in a fine mesh before fluffing it with a fork.
Ingredients for 2-4 servings
1 cup cooked bulgur
1 cup cooked lentils
1 carrot, finely diced and sauteed in oil
3 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
smoked sea salt
2. This salad is best served warm. It can be a meal in itself or accompany grilled meat, roasted chicken or steamed fish.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with your family and friends tomorrow!
