Fiber-rich bulgar and protein-packed shrimp to keep you full for hours! 

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic (finely chopped)
  • 1 cup bulgar wheat

  • 2 cups frozen corn
  • 1 medium red bell pepper (finely chopped)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper falkes
  • 1/4 cilantro (I put in more because I love cilantro!)

Directions:

  1. Begin boiling 2 cups water.
  2. In a separate pan, toast the bulgar:
    1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat.
    2. Add in garlic clove.
    3. Add bulgar and salt.
  3. Gradually add in boiling water to bulgar and garlic mixture, waiting until bulgar absorbs the water before adding more. Bulgar will be slightly soupy (8-10 minutes).
