Breakfast is, hands down, my favorite meal of the day. I almost always eat a warm bowl of oatmeal topped with cinnamon, walnuts, bananas, and blueberries. I’ve had that nearly every morning for breakfast for years, and somehow I never tire of it. However, recently I felt like I should branch out and try something new. When I saw this recipe in Feel Good Food by Giada de Laurentiis, I was really excited to try it. Especially since I’d just bought a bag of bulgur wheat from Trader Joe’s!
Be sure to use quick-cooking bulgur for this recipe; that’s what makes it so fast and easy. I loved the slightly crunchy texture of the bulgur wheat – it reminded me of steel-cut oats. I chose not to add the apple juice and agave nectar to the poached mixed berries and they were just as good, in my opinion. And, if you’ve never drizzled a little olive oil on your oatmeal, try it! I was skeptical, but it’s actually quite good (and it’s a nice way to get in some healthy fat too).
This bowl of Breakfast Bulgur Wheat was delicious. I’m not sure that it will replace my beloved bowl of oats, but it was a nice change from the norm. What do you like to eat for breakfast?
Until next time,
