Bulgur is an edible cereal grain made from dried, cracked wheat. Usually it is made from durum wheat, but sometimes is made from other kinds of wheat. It is most often part of Middle Eastern meals in countries like Syria, Lebanon, Jerusalem, and Turkey. It is chewy and nutty and really good with anything you’d like to add to it. You can eat it any time of day!
Bulgur is considered a whole grain, meaning that the entire wheat kernel — including the germ, endosperm and bran — is eaten. Do you remember why eating a whole grain is healthier?
That’s right! You get all the vitamins, minerals, and fiber if you eat a whole grain!
