Burghul is a Persian word meaning ‘bruised grain’. Not to be confused with cracked wheat (which is not pre-cooked), burghul is wheat that has been steamed or parboiled, dried and ground. It therefore requires little preparation. The tender grain has a chewy texture and a light, nutty flavor. It is traditionally used as a side dish in place of couscous or rice. Burghul is tasty and a healthy food product which is produced from wheat and water and does not contain any colorings or artificial flavors.
One of the standout qualities of bulgur is its satisfyingly chewy texture. This adds substance to meals and aids in creating a sense of satiety and contentment after eating. With bulgur as part of your culinary repertoire, you can manage portion control effectively while enjoying a gratifying dining experience.
