Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cups bulgur (dried cracked wheat)
  • 1 1/3 cups cold water
  • dried fruit of choice, chopped (I love craisins, apricots, raisins, papaya)
  • nuts (pecans are yummy!)
  • favorite spices (cinnamon or nutmeg work well)
  • seeds (sunflower, pumpkin)
  • brown rice syrup

Directions:

Add the bulgur to cold water, bring to a boil, and then down to a simmer. Simmer in a covered pan for 12-15 minutes. I love to cook it so that it pops out, a little like popcorn, and is very moist like oatmeal. After it is cooked thoroughly, add the dried fruit, seeds, and nuts…however much you want. A handful of each, perhaps. It’s your recipe now. Add spices if you want. Then, put it in a cute little bowl and drizzle it with plenty o’ syrup. I must admit I used honey, but brown rice syrup, corn syrup, or maple syrup would all work very well. Serve hot! Leftovers can be refrigerated, preferably without the syrup on top. Eat leftovers within a couple days. Yum.
