Bulgur is a common ingredient in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean dishes. It can be used in pilafs, soups, baked goods, salads or as stuffing. Brown bulgur’s high nutritional value makes it a good substitute for rice. Compared to unenriched white rice, bulgur has more protein, a lower glycemic index, and higher levels of most vitamins and minerals.
