I enjoyed this recipe a lot. The flavor was excellent and I was glad to have a recipe that uses bulgur and barley which I bought awhile back but have hardly used. I have a couple of questions about the recipe though. First the instructions say to add yogurt at the same time as you add milk, however the ingredients list does not include any yogurt so I wasn't sure how much to add. I tried with about 2 Tbsp plain greek yogurt but I'm not sure that was right. Secondly I live alone and would like to cut down the recipe to 1 serving so I do not eat more than I should. I would be happy for some feedback on both these concerns if possible. Thanks Read More
