Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That said we tend to eat more during the said meal to keep us fuelled for the day ahead. Though sometimes, we pack in more calories than what we really need.
Regardless of your diet plan, being Pinoy, one of the biggest struggles is to surrender white rice. Health gurus would often just deride it as a cheap energy that your body takes time to process.
But if you grew up loving the familiar starch, combined with a savoy viand, Duru Bulgur is the wisest alternative that can fill any rice-shaped void.
Sharing with you a quick and simple Garlic “Rice” recipe using Duru Bulgur
1 cup Extra Course or Course Duru Bulgur
1 ½ cups Water
2 tbsp crushed fresh Garlic
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Fish Sauce
1.) In a pot, heat oil and add crushed Garlic. Saute until aromatic.
2.) Add Duru Bulgur, sauté until grains are well coated.
3.) Add Water. Bring to boil, and immediately turn to low heat.
4.) Cook until water has evaporated.
5.) Let the mixture sit in the pot, covered, for 20 minutes.
6.) After 20 minutes, add Fish Sauce, and using a fork, fluff up the bulgur.
Far from the deleterious reputation of its white rice counterparts, the health benefits of Bulgur are countless. The three most important ones are the following:
Promotes healthy heart. People who consume 90 to 225 grams of whole grains per day are 20% less prone to heart disease risk. Eating whole grain like Duru Bulgur, one that is rich in fiber, antioxidants, and protein can help you lessen the risk of heart disease.
Assist in controlling blood sugar. Aside from heaving a significantly lower glycemic index than pasta or rice, Duru Bulgur is a good source of fiber and phytonutrients. These attributes could help your body regulate blood sugar to normal levels.
Great for both vegans/vegetarians, and meat-eaters alike. Bulgur is a good source of manganese, Vitamin B Complex, Folic Acid, Iron, Magnesium, and Plant-based proteins.
