As I mentioned before Thomas, my husband, got his cholesterol checked and it was shockingly high so I bought this book to help me learn what foods help to lower harmful cholesterol, fight toxins and what foods to avoid etc. The book has over 50 lunch and dinner recipes and provided the inspiration for this Bulgar salad. This was my first time cooking Bulgar wheat but it certainly won’t be the last time. It’s unbelievably simple to prepare and the fluffy grain accepts stronger flavored ingredients. It’s perfect for a lunch or dinner but I made it for dinner tonight with some roasted sweet potatoes and mixed leaf salad with a drizzling of olive oil, beautiful. The sweet and cinnamon flavor from the sweet potato was such a good combination with the bulgar wheat but to please a fussy teenager I topped it with a pan fried pork chop. Honestly, this was a real treat.
