Basil & Lemon Bulgar Wheat

Basil & Lemon Bulgar Wheat

Bulgar Wheat is a source of nutrition I consider to be clean; it will also still give you the kick of carb you need every so often. Simply adding some Basil and Lemon can give it some flavour and be a great addition to any meal.

It’s quick to prep and cook, which is what we love! – just make sure you time it to be ready with the rest of your meal (probably best to save it til last!)

Step 1:

  • Measure out how much wheat you will want and pour into a pot

Once you have this you will know how much water to use – for every cup of bulgar wheat, use 2 cups of water

Step 2:

  • Boil the water and pour it over the wheat (the water should cover the wheat)

Step 3:

  • Add the basil and squeeze the lemon into the water

Step 4:

  • Cover the pot and leave for approx. 5-7 mins (this will again depend on how much you are cooking)

Step 5:

  • Check on the wheat by mixing it around and ensuring all the water has been absorbed
  • If it has, mix it a couple of times so the lemon and basil flavouring spreads

Step 6:

  • It’s now ready to serve!
