Print Email

1 cup bulgur
2 cups water
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk, such as almond or soy
1/4 cup flax seed meal
1/2 cup dried fruit, such as raisins, cranberries, or cherries
1/2 cup nuts, such as slivered almonds, chopped walnuts or pecans
1 banana, sliced
amber agave syrup, for serving

Combine bulgur, water, and salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer until bulgur is tender and water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Pour in milk and warm gently.
