Bulgar/Bulghur or Bulgur wheat is made from par-boiling then baking whole grains of wheat (usually Durum Wheat) which are then cracked into roughly uniform fragments. The grain retains some of its natural bran in this process making bulgur wheat a nutritious choice for cooking.
This particular type of wheat product has been popular in the Middle East, North Africa, Turkey and the Mediterranean for centuries in dishes such as Tabbouleh (see recipe below), Kibbeh and Pilaf. Bulghur wheat can be used to add extra fibre and nutrients to bread and can be used instead of breadcrumbs in stuffing.
