Bulgur #1 is a common ingredient in Lebanese, Middle Eastern, and Mediterranean dishes. Bulgur is wheat that is cooked (parboiled or steamed), removing the outer layers of bran, then ground into various sized grains that are sun-dried. For tabbouli and kibbi in Classic Lebanese Cuisine, use bulgur (burghul) #1, fine. Larger grains, like bulgar #4, can be steamed and served with lamb, chicken, beef or vegetarian style. It has a light, nutty flavor. Bulgur can be used in pilafs, soups or as stuffing. Its high nutritional value makes it a good substitute for rice or couscous.
