Herb-Flecked Bulgur Wheat

Bulgur wheat is a quick-cooking whole grain you’ll want to keep on hand for an easy side dish. Chop up the herbs while the bulgur stands. You can vary this recipe in any number of ways – use vegetable or chicken broth in place of the water, stir in your favorite fresh herbs or garnish it with toasted nuts and a sprinkling of feta or goat cheese.

herb-flecked bulgur

1 cup water
1 cup fine- or medium-grain bulgur
4-5 tablespoons mixed chopped herbs (we like 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley, 2 tablespoons finely chopped basil and 1 tablespoon finely chopped mint)
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Bring the water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add bulgur. Cover, remove from heat, and let it stand for 10-20 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork. Stir in herbs and lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Notes: Cook Time: 10-20 minutes
