Summer Squash with Bulgur Wheat
Bulgur is a quick-cooking form of whole wheat that has been cleaned, parboiled, dried, ground into particles and sifted into distinct sizes. The result is a nutritious, versatile wheat product with a pleasant, nut-like flavor and an extended shelf-life which allows it to be stored for long periods of time. With so such a wonderful flavor and remarkable health benefits you will wonder why bulgur hasn’t been in your cupboard sooner!
