I love having a new twist on a favorite meal so I decided to try bulgur as the base for my hot cereal this week. The results were a very pleased momma. I loved the texture (closer to steel cut oats than oatmeal) and I love the addition of Greek yogurt and peanut butter. I chose to use vanilla Greek yogurt with walnuts + strawberries the first day and blueberries the second; point being any fruit would work here (I think tomorrow I’ll try a banana or peaches). I also like that it made enough for 3 days! Bulgur’s somewhat sweet taste was great for hot cereal and it only contains ~150 calories per cup. If you are feeling bored then give it a go you won’t be disappointed. It will keep you stomach and taste buds satisfied.
