What is fine bulgur wheat and how to use it?
A fast-cooking nutritious grain, fine bulgur is made from hard red winter wheat berries that have been processed and hulled to remove some of the bran. When cooked, fine bulgur is tender and fluffy and has a nutty earthiness. It is somewhat similar to couscous and can be used as a substitute.
How to cook fine bulgur wheat (basic instructions)
- Rinse the amount of fine bulgur you need and place it in a bowl.
- Add plenty of hot water (about double the amount of bulgur).
- Allow it to sit for about 15 minutes or so, until the bulgur has softened and absorbed all the water.
