See foodies with ‘Chicken & Shrimp Fried Bulgur’

We raved all about the health benefits of bulgur wheat in this Bulgur jollof recipe we shared a while back. Bulgur is a lower calorie alternative to rice. it can also be enjoyed as a breakfast cereal.
This fried “rice” like recipe is a personal favorite of mine. it’s simple and tastes very much like fried rice at lower calories.
