Bulgur instead of Couscous?
Today, we were out of milk, and it was sort of sunny and everyone was feeling a little out of sorts, so I dragged everyone on the 10 minute walk to Mega - just to get milk and stop in at the little toy store across from it and pick up some craft-y something to do with the kids who will be coming over tomorrow. It's my daughter's birthday this week, so we're going all out!
Anyhow, we were at Mega. And I noticed that they had bulgur (see above - it's called burghul here, I believe that is a derivation of the Arabic name for this food) on sale for 2 NIS for 500 g. And that is WAY cheaper than buying whole wheat couscous. And the only time I have ever prepared bulgur, I thought it was just about almost the same as couscous, so maybe I could get away with making bulgur and calling it couscous and saving a bunch of money?!
Anyhow, I have no idea what to do with my bulgur. Please share your favorite recipes!
