Adding a bulgur dish to your repertoire is no herculean labor: The Spruce Eats says for every cup of grain, add two cups of liquid and bring it to a boil. As soon as the pot is boiling, cover it and bring it back down to a simmer, letting it cook for about 12 minutes before draining.
While you can add pretty much anything to it, we’d argue the most famous bulgar-based dish is tabbouleh salad. Once your bulgur is ready, mix it in with some chopped tomato, cucumber, and green onion; oil; parsley and mint; salt; and a squeeze of lemon or lime juice to your liking (via The Mediterranean Dish). The Spruce Eats adds that on top of making bulgur the base for pilaf-style dishes, its consistency is perfect for making patties and croquettes that would make your mouth drool.
And speaking of making your mouth drool, The Spruce Eats claims bulgur gives off a scent like fresh popcorn when cooking, so if you intend on cheffing some up, you might want to pick out a movie in advance.
