Coarse bulgur wheat is an ancient Middle Eastern whole grain that is made from hard red winter wheat berries that have been processed to break down some of the outer layer. Because our coarse bulgar is parcooked, it is quick to prepare – one cup cooks in about 12 minutes. With its earthy, nutty taste and firm texture, coarse bulgar makes a great pilaf, and can also be added to soups, stews, and casserole dishes.

What is bulgur wheat and how to use it?

An ancient Middle Eastern whole grain, coarse bulgar wheat is made from hard red winter wheat berries that have been processed to remove some of the bran. It is then parboiled, dried, and cracked, resulting in a coarse grain that cooks quickly and packs a nutritious punch.

Use coarse bulgur as a substitute for rice to make a tasty pilaf, and to add some heft and nutrition to soups and stews. Coarse bulgur wheat can usually be used in recipes that require brown rice – they’re quite similar in taste and texture.

How to cook coarse bulgar wheat (basic instructions)

  • Rinse and add 1 cup of bulgur to 1 1/2 cups boiling water in a medium saucepan. Season to your liking.
  • Cover and reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for about 12 minutes or until the bulgur is tender and the liquid is fully absorbed.
  • Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, for another 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork before serving.

Excellent wheat bulgur

Best wheat bulgur, better than any supermarket bulgur.

I bought this for a recipe calling for fine bulgar. Instead I cooked it and added to the salad and it came out great. I am now using it as a whole grain breakfast. I add raisins or dried cranberries before cooking and serve with soy milk and maple syrup.
