If you're not familiar with bulgur, it's a grain that's used a lot in Middle Eastern dishes, specifically tabbouleh. Because it's made from cracked parboiled wheat, it only needs a soak in some hot water to become tender, making it one of the most underrated grains if you're looking for convenience and whole grain goodness. While you could skip the toasting step in our recipe, we like to include it because of the extra nutty flavor it imparts to the bulgur.


Kosher salt

¼ tsp

Uncooked bulgur

1¼ cup(s)


  1. In a small saucepan, bring the salt and 2½ cups water to a boil over high heat. In a dry medium skillet, toast the bulgur over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a medium heatproof bowl. Pour the boiling water over the bulgur and cover with plastic wrap. Let stand for 30 minutes or until the water is absorbed and the bulgur is tender. Drain any excess water.
  2. Serving size: about ½ cup
