I thought this was delicious and super fuss-free. For some reason, opening up the fridge in the morning to find "cooked" bulgur delighted me more than it probably should have... Anyways, the only drawback was I found myself hungry a couple hours later, but I'm hoping it was just a fluke. The 1 cup of bulgur ends up making enough for just a little over 3 servings so I'll be eating this a few more times.
This is amazing! Like a PB & J for breakfast. Personally, I preferred it without the yogurt. The best part about this recipe is you can mix it up a bit. It is perfect as is, but you can use any berry, you can use any nut butter, and you can use any nut. Whatever you have on hand works. Also, you can prep a few on Sunday night and they are set in the fridge for breakfast all week. Just grab and go!
I used 1 extra large strawberry, did not add Greek yogurt and peanuts. It wasn't bad, but I think I need to try again to get used to that texture in a warm cereal. Maybe next time I'll add the Greek yogurt.
I would definately eat this again and will likely add it to the morning routine. My problem with the recipe is a technical one. It says it makes enough for one. But the amount of dry bulgar called for is 1 cup. If you only use 3/4 cups in the dish then preparing 1 cup dried is going to give you way more than you need. It is nice to have extra around if you are going to use it but the recipe does not point this out. I also think that adding the peanut butter prior to heating in microwave (maybe for 20 seconds or so) would help to mix it in as it would be a little melted. It is a good basic recipe with plenty of room for experimentation.
