Good Substitutes For Bulgur?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I make a couple of vegetarian stews/chilis (we're not vegetarian but I cook a lot of veggie things) that use bulgur to give them some body. What kind of non-gluten grain would be good for this? I was thinking quinoa, but wondered if there were other options. It needs to be something fairly sturdy. Rice would obviously work too, but one gets sick of rice....

How about buckwheat? Not sure it would work well but I found up Wolff's Kasha at my local Wal-Mart (it was in the section with Jewish foods).

Lundberg also makes some interesting rice blends. I've had their Wild Blend and it's good.

For bulgar based salads such as tabbouleh, my go to is quinoa.

I also frequently bulk things up with lentils.

I found a roasted brown rice couscous and everyone loves it. I think it was Lundberg.

It wasn't "ricey" - it was very couscous-y.

You can also use shredded cauliflower or zucchini in the salad-y recipes that call for bulgar.

I am mostly paleo, so I tend to go for the non grain alternatives.
