What the heck is bulgur?
Yes, I had the same question when I first heard this word.
Is it wheat? Is it a grain? Is it rice?
For a very long explanation you can go here and read all about the grain, but for the short and sweet definition. This is it:
Bulgur wheat is a whole wheat grain that has been cracked and partially pre-cooked. As a whole grain, it is a naturally high-fiber, low-fat, low-calorie vegetarian and vegan food ingredient.
