What is Bulgur?

Bulgur is a word of Turkish origin, which is spelled in many different ways: Bulgur, but also Bulgur, Borghol, Borgol or Burgul!

As I told you, it is a derivative of durum wheat. Wheat grains are removed from their husks (bran) and then pre-cooked by steam. They are then dried and crushed. To cook, bulgur must be hydrated with boiling water.

Bulgur is a very popular ingredient in Middle Eastern cuisine: many dishes are made from this grain in Lebanese and Syrian cuisine, but also in Turkish, Iraqi, Greek, Bulgarian and Armenian cuisines. It is sometimes eaten plain, but is often embellished with vegetables, such as semolina, or used in pan-fried dishes, mezes or soups.

Simple Bulgur Recipe

Bulgur is cooked in the same way as rice or semolina, and can be used in many preparations. Its cooking method depends on the method with which it was made, so it is essential to refer to the packaging of your product.

You can cook the bulgur or rehydrate it by absorption. I prefer this second method which gives fully hydrated grains that don’t fall apart (this is a risk with over-cooked grains).

1 part bulgur to 2 parts water

Like rice, it is not recommended to cook it in large amounts of water. All you need to do is rinse your bulgur to remove dust and starch that remains on the surface. Then cover it with boiling water. Count 2 amounts of water for 1 volume of bulgur. You can also bring your water to a boil, cook on medium heat for 2 minutes, then turn off the heat and keep covered to rise. Allow 15 to 20 minutes for a thoroughly dehydrated and soft bulgur.
