Perhaps the best known bulgur wheat dish is tabbouli, a Lebanese salad featuring bulgur, parsley and mint in a lemon dressing. Par-cooked and dried whole wheat, bulgur is a whole grain loaded with nutrients and fiber and a healthy alternative to pasta in dinner salads.

Although package directions often recommend boiling and stirring, a no-fuss way to prepare quick-cooking bulgur is to simply soak in boiling water.

It only takes a few minutes to assemble to salad but a longer time is specified for preparing, soaking, and chilling the bulgur.
