I recently discovered bulgur and am a total convert! It has fewer calories, less fat, and more than twice the fiber than brown rice. It's a low on the glycemic index and high in folic acid. AND IT COOKS FASTER THAN RICE. So, if all that doesn't convince you, just try this simple recipe. It has a nice nutty flavor and makes a great side dish to pretty much anything.
