Great recipe to replace white rice pilaf. Helps to level blood sugar. Sodium is a little high. Try to find a low sodium bullion cube, or use a low sodium chicken broth in the can. You can also omit the margarine, to save on the fat.

Recipe Ingredients for Bulgur Pilaf

2 oz (1/4 cup) dry spaghetti, angel hair broken into small pieces
1 tsp olive oil
1 cup cracked wheat, bulgur #4
4 bullion cubes, chicken, tones brand
2 tsp margarine
4 tsp butter buds
2 cups water

Recipe Directions for Bulgur Pilaf

In a medium sauce pan, over medium heat brown the angel hair pasta (or vermicelli) in the olive oil. Keep a close eye as the pasta will brown quickly. Add the bulgar (or white rice if you prefer), bullion (or canned broth) margarine, butter buds and water. Stir all ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cover with a tight fitting lid. Simmer for 20 minutes until liquid is absorbed. Do not stir the rice mixture while it is cooking, it will turn sticky/mushy.
