Bulgur Wheat Bowls, For When You're Being Healthy AF

By Betchy Crocker

Yah, they’re the kind of bowls that def aren’t as fun, BUT they are uber healthy, so like there’s that.

If you didn’t know, bulgur wheat is not only super trendy, it’s super good for you. Cooking Light showed us how to make it and like, we respect them cause they’re all about being skinny.

Bulgur wheat, if you didn’t know, is wheat that’s been parboiled, then dried, then cracked into tiny pieces. Its fast cooking makes it all the more awesome among grains (we’re looking at you, brown rice), and its nutty taste lends itself well to everything from breakfast to dinner to dessert.

Make that shit: To cook it, combine 1 ½ cups medium grain bulgur with 3 cups of water in a medium saucepan. Bring it to a boil, then cover, reduce heat, and simmer for about 10 mins or until that shit is tender. Drain, then store. You’ll have like, 5 cups, so you can use it in shit all week. Also, a full cup of this shit is only 150 calories, so don’t go ruining it with fatty thangs.


Breakfast: Combine ½ cup of cooked bulgur with ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt, 1 tsp honey, 1 tbsp brown sugar, 1 tbsp toasted and chopped pecans, and 1/3 cup chopped fresh apples. Throw some cinnamon on top and enjoy.

Lunch: Combine 1 cup of cooked bulgur with 1 cup of roasted, cubed butternut squash; 1 cup of fresh baby spinach; 1 slice of bacon, cooked and crumbled; and 1 tbsp gorgonzola. Top with fresh cracked black pepper and bam, lunch.

Dinner: Combine ½ cup cooked bulgur with ¼ cup canned chickpeas, 1 tbsp diced red onion, 2 tbsps fresh cilantro, 1 tbsp olive oil, a squeeze of lemon, ¼ tsp of honey, and ¼ tsp of cumin. Throw some blackened chicken on top and you have yourself a bitchin dinner.
