One-Pan Sausage Bulgur Wheat Recipe

Bulgur Wheat has a warm nutty flavor. It can be cooked right into your recipe in 20 minutes which makes it perfect for this One-pan Sausage Bulgur Wheat recipe!

An antique spoon sits in the center.One of the best things that I’ve done in the past couple of years is to expand my horizons by including whole grains where I can, and I think bulgur wheat, specifically this One-pan Sausage Bulgur Wheat recipe, is my favorite yet.

Fresh tomatoes sit in the background over a striped napkin.Whole grain used to mean rice and usually white rice. We just didn’t have a lot of whole grains available when I was growing up. Since then white rice has been swapped out for wild rice. We’ve fallen in love with farro and spelt, and my newest obsession is bulgur wheat. I’m loving the stuff.

One of the greatest things about bulgur wheat is that you can cook it with your other ingredients, and it’s done in 20 minutes. You don’t have to cook it separately for 45 minutes or soak it overnight before cooking it. Another great thing about bulgur wheat is that it is high in dietary fiber, 8.6g per cup and half the calories of quinoa! There are so many health benefits that I hope you will see for yourself how great bulgur wheat is.

It’s quick, easy, delicious, and clean-up is a breeze.

This is a must try for me. Do I soak the bulgar before adding it to the pan?

Not sure why you rated it without trying this recipe which states you don't have to soak it and it can be added to your other ingredients.

Love this recipe! This looks like string beans adobo, which is a famous recipe here in the Philippines. I would love to give this a try.

This looks delicious and healthy! I love bulgur, but I don't always know how to use it, other than in tabbouleh (which I love). Thank you for this great idea!
