¾ cup dry bulgur
⅛ teaspoon ground ginger
1 Tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
⅓ cup chopped unsalted peanuts
1 green onion, thinly sliced

Directions

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. In a medium saucepan, bring broth, bulgur, ginger and soy sauce to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer until liquid is absorbed, 12 to 15 minutes.
  3. Fluff bulgur with a fork. Stir in peanuts and green onion. Serve warm.
  4. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.

Notes

  • Serve as a side dish, or use as a base for sauteed vegetables.

Comments

We made this to go with grilled tandoori chicken and zucchini. Very nice and super simple whole grain side. I used some vegetable stock rather than dried bouillon. I love how easy and no-fuss bulgur is.
