So easy to make, and so satisfying.
What is burghul?
It is a wheat product that is steamed, and toasted, then they are cracked into small pieces.
Steaming in advance makes burghul a very quick dish to prepare.
Cracked wheat often mistaken for bulgur is slightly different in that it is made of whole grains and is not pre-steamed or cooked before it is cracked into small pieces.
This really is a tasty food. Give it a try!
How to Cook Burghul
This is a very easy process indeed!
Pour two cups of boiling water over the burghul, stir, and cover for 20 minutes.
Remove the lid and you will have a nice moist soft grain that is ready to eat.
And this is where you can add things to it to reflect your tastes.
