I didn’t even know what bulgar wheat was till I moved to Worcester.
It is delicious when you know what to do with it.
This is a recipe my friend gave me that I changed a little.
One cup of bulgar wheat.
Three cups of tomato sauce
One medium minced red onion
One red diced pepper
One bunch of diced parsley
One bunch of scallions
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Wash the wheat and carefully drain the water off. It is too fine to put in a strainer so just try to get as much water out as you can.
Add the tomato sauce.
Put the onion, red pepper and parsley in the food processor and pulse till a fine chop.
My friend dices and chops everything by hand.
Add to the bulgar and tomato sauce.
Dice the scallions and set aside for the topping.
Mix the lemon juice, oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper together
Pour over the bulgar and mix well
Place in a pretty dish and top with the scallions
Serve with pita chips or as a side salad
