Bulgur — steamed, dried, crushed wheat kernels — is a snap to prepare and goes well with a variety of herbs. Try chives, cilantro or mint.

Ingredients

table salt

½ tsp

uncooked bulgur

1½ cup(s)

fresh lemon juice

3 Tbsp, or to taste

olive oil

4 tsp

black pepper

½ tsp

crumbled feta cheese

½ cup(s)

mint leaves

½ cup(s), fresh, chopped

Instructions

  1. Combine 1 1/2 cups of cold water and salt in a small pot; bring to a boil and stir in bulgur. Cover pot, remove from heat and set aside until bulgur is tender and water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Fluff bulgur with a fork; allow to cool.
  2. Spoon bulgur into a serving bowl. Add lemon juice, oil and pepper; stir well. Add cheese and mint; stir gently, but well. Yields about 3/4 cup per serving.

Notes

Toss in some roasted grape tomatoes for additional flavor and lots of color (could affect SmartPoints value).
