    This flavorful Vegan Fresh Mint & Lemon Bulgur Pilaf is a great way to get more grains in to your diet. Bulgur wheat is a nutritious cereal grain which is easy to prepare and has a number of health benefits. Bulgur contains a variety of vitamins and minerals, as well as being a good source of fiber. When it’s cooked, its texture is similar to quinoa or couscous, but it has a bit more bite to it which is why I like it so much.

    In this recipe, I cook the bulgur directly in the broth with carrot, ginger and salt. Once all the liquid has been absorbed, I add fresh dill, mint, parsley and lemon juice for flavor and I top with with toasted, chopped walnuts. The addition of dill makes this recipe for me as I love the strong, distinctive taste that dill brings to a dish.
