5 A Day Bulgur Wheat

5 A Day Bulgur Wheat


1 medium chopped onion
1 cup chopped broccoli
1 cup shredded carrots
1 small chopped green pepper - may use red or yellow pepper
1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley or 2 Tablespoons dried
1 teaspoon canola oil
1 1/2 cups dry bulgur
2 cups chicken broth, low-sodium
8 ounces canned, drained chickpeas


1. Wash and chop fresh onion, broccoli, carrots, pepper and parsley (if using fresh parsley).

2. Heat canola oil in a large skillet. Add onions and cook until soft.

3. Add bulgur and stir to coat. Add 2 cups chicken broth to the skillet, bring to a boil.

4. Lower the heat, add remaining vegetables and chickpeas. Cook for 10 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed.

5. Add parsley and stir. Serve warm or cold.

Note: Bulgur comes from wheat. It is actually the kernel of wheat, cracked for cooking. It has a nutty, chewy flavor that is sure to please the healthy appetite, and contains fiber. Canola oil is a healthy choice for vegetable oil.)
