Robert is cooking us dinner tonight. He's already got it cooking in the crockpot/slow cooker. Last time he made this dish, he made it with rice. This time, we are trying some bulgur wheat in it instead of rice because we won a couple of packs of bulgur wheat at Slimming World before Christmas.
Having never tried bulgur wheat before, neither of us knows what to expect or whether or not we will like it. I hope we do like it or all of the other ingredients in our dinner will be wasted.
The dish Robert is making is this: chopped carrots (4 to 6), chopped onions (2 large white ones), chopped celery (a few stalks), chopped swede (one), chopped turnip (one), chopped broccoli (one bag), Quorn chicken-style pieces ("fake chicken" for those of you who don't have the Quorn brand of vegetarian dishes), and chicken stock (substitute vegetable or onion stock for vegetarians). Add all ingredients with water to the crockpot. Cook on high for two hours and then on low for a couple of hours. Add in rice or bulgur wheat when almost finished, giving time for the rice to cook properly and soak up the seasonings and liquid. Eat.
Bulgur wheat is supposed to be a really healthy food.
Ever tried bulgur wheat? What did you think of it? I'll let you know my verdict once I've tried it.
