Wholemeal Bulgur Wheat is a delicious side dish with a slightly nutty flavour, which is suitable for salads, bulgur or sweet breakfast porridge

Wholemeal Bulgur Wheat is a popular side dish with a slightly nutty flavour and aroma. It is made by cracking whole wheat grains, thus retaining the maximum amount of bioactive substances. It is a food ingredient rich in complex carbohydrates, which provide the body with energy slowly and gradually. This is why it comes in handy when you're looking for foods to help fight hunger. Bulgur also boasts a high fibre content and will be appreciated for taking care of your digestive system and intestinal microbiome. It is also low in saturated fat, which you will appreciate, for example, during a diet.


Bulgur stands out for its simple preparation, yet there are many ways to prepare it. It can be cooked like any other side dish. Boil it in water in a 1:2 ratio for about 15 minutes. However, you can also just boil it for 5 - 10 minutes and then let it cook under a lid. If you don't feel like cooking it, you can put it in cold water for about 1 hour and let it swallow up.


Wholemeal Bulgur Wheat is great in both sweet and salty recipes. It tastes great as a side dish to meat, fish, tofu, robi meat or other vegetable meat alternatives. It is also a great ingredient for a variety of salads. You can use it to make, for example, traditional Arabic tabbouleh salad, which, in addition to bulgur, contains fresh herbs, tomatoes, onions, lemon juice, and olive oil. Moreover, you can also conjure up a salad with other vegetables and ingredients to taste. Bulgur can also be used to make delicious bulgur risotto, pancakes, fritters, and can be used to thicken soups.


If you want to try sweet bulgur, you can make porridge with fruit, whey protein and nuts or nut butter. You can also use bulgur to bake sweet pudding, muffins or other desserts. It can also be made into bulgur wheat porridge with milk in the same way as rice porridge. As you can see, bulgur is a versatile and nutritious food that will for sure become a staple in your kitchen.
