[Food Series] Herbed Goat Cheese and Pepper Bulgur

I had never heard of bulgur until I met my husband 17 years ago, but once I tried it, I was a fan! Bulgur is a really light and fluffy whole wheat grain that is naturally high in fiber and low in fat. It’s the grain that you’ll find in a traditional tabbouleh recipe and it’s a staple in our pantry. Ready in 15 minutes, this dish is definitely a quick, healthy and delicious mid-week family meal that won’t break the bank! Enjoy!

Ingredients
9oz of Bulgur
2 tablespoons of Olive Oil
2 tablespoons of Butter
1 large Shallot
1 tablespoon of Herbs de Provence
1 Orange Bell Pepper
1 Yellow Bell Pepper
3oz Herbed Goat Cheese
Salt & Pepper
Start the bulgur to cook in a deep pot, following the directions on the package. Meanwhile, thinly slice the shallots and in a heated pan with the olive oil and butter, saute them on a low heat for 5 minutes. Thinly slice the bell peppers and then add them and the herbs de Provence to the shallots. Once the bulgur is ready, drop the goat cheese into the bulgur in tiny dollops, then pour in the shallot and bell pepper mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste and stir until the goat cheese is fully melted and incorporated. Serve and enjoy!
