Ann’s Tips and Tricks
If you have to watch how much fiber you’re eating make this with refined bulgur, and it will lower the fiber content. Use peeled and diced fresh apples or pears instead of fiber rich figs.
You can use any type of milk for this recipe – try soy or almond milk for a dairy-free version.
Soak the bulgur in the milk the night before for a quicker cooking time in the morning.
