Bulgur Salad with Edamame and Cherry Tomatoes

Photo: Randy Mayor; Stylist: Jan Gautro

The vitamin C from lemon juice aids iron absorption. Serve bulgur salad with grilled chicken, lemony hummus, and toasted 100 percent whole-wheat pita wedges to round out the meal. Substitute fresh shelled fava beans for edamame, if you like. Fava beans also supply protein, fiber, and B vitamins.
