Hey All,
My friend just gave me a GIANT bag of bulgar, does anyone know any good recipes that use bulgar (preferably a lot of it)?

LOL, well you are no help :P

Bulger is a wheat by product, usually used in tabouli, but I can only eat so much of that. I am looking for other recipes because this is a giant bag.

I have never cooked with bulgur (as it is called in most other parts of the world, I think) but here are two things you could do:

1. Bulgur is very similar to couscous, but with the difference that is is more of a "whole-wheat" version. You could use it in any of the recipes using couscous.

2. Search in Google for bulgur + recipe: this will give about 173,000 search results. There might be something useful in that.


BTW: Just how big is that bag you got given? If it's just too big to eat before it goes off, perhaps feeding birds or chickens with it might be the go........

Its a Kg bag, which is big considering I am one person who has never eaten it before, and bulgur is pretty light.

I looked at the recipes online too, I just like to see if other people I know have tried and true recipes I can borrow, sometimes online recipes are hit and miss :)

Thanks all!

Hmmm. Experiment!!! Can you grind it up in a coffee grinder and use it in recipes? Might bring an interesting flavour and heaviness to the recipe.

Unfortunately bulgar isn't something I am too familiar with. I say, try it in everything. Try putting it in soups when you make them, like you might with pasta. Try making a sort of "cream of wheat" out of it for breakfast. Soak it in twice as much water overnight, and see what kind of texture you are dealing with.

Good luck! :D
