Whole Wheat Bulgur Bread Recipe

Bulgur is cracked wheat, and although the bits are quite hard and crunchy, soaking them briefly softens them. It adds a unique character and flavor to this whole-wheat loaf.
This bread will keep for several days and is especially good served with a platter of sliced tomatoes, dressed with olive oil and lemon, and garnished with feta cheese.
Round out the menu with some tomato basil butter it’s good on crackers,too-and you will have an outstanding summertime luncheon.
