Overnight Bulgur Breakfast Bowl

Bulgur is a quick-cooking whole grain made from wheat kernels that have been cracked into small pieces and parcooked.  It’s a traditional ingredient in the Middle Eastern salad known as tabbouleh.  For this recipe, combine 1 cup of bulgur and 1 1/2 cups of milk in a bowl.  Cover and refrigerate overnight.

In the morning,  add a chopped pear or apple, 2 tablespoons of almond butter, 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, and a dash of cinnamon. Top each serving with plain or vanilla yogurt.

Serves 4.

Nutrition Note: For a gluten-free substitute, use gluten-free rolled oats in place of the bulgur.
