Bulgur with Ginger & Orange
Bulgur is ubiquitous in Middle Eastern cooking but also pairs deliciously with Asian seasonings. This simple side dish is perfect with beef, lamb or poultry. For variations, substitute toasted sesame seeds for the almonds, or carrot juice (it is surprisingly good and certainly nutritious) for orange juice.
Ingredient Note: Fiber-rich bulgur--whole-wheat kernels that are precooked, dried and cracked--is sold in natural-foods stores and large markets.
