Wheat & Dried Fruit Porridge


From EatingWell:  September/October 1996, The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)

This high-fiber hot cereal offers a delightfully nutty change from oatmeal. Bulgur is a quick-cooking form of wheat that has been parboiled and dried. Don't confuse it with cracked wheat, which needs longer cooking.

2 servings, about 1 cup each | Active Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 10 minutes



  1. Combine apricots, currants, honey, cinnamon, salt and water in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Stir in bulgur; cook, stirring constantly, until the bulgur starts to thicken, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, cover and let stand until most of the liquid is absorbed and the fruit is tender, about 3 minutes. Divide between 2 bowls, dust with a little cinnamon and serve.
