My mother made this nutritious side dish all the time when we were growing up. I enhanced the recipe with a bigger variety of dried fruit to find an interesting balance between the sweet and salty flavors. —Ninette Holbrook, Orlando, FL


  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 cups bulgur
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped


  1. In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook and stir bulgur until toasted. Stir in salt, pepper and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, until tender and liquid is almost absorbed, 10-12 minutes.
  2. Stir in 1/3 cup each of the almonds, raisins, cranberries and apricots. Serve with the remaining almonds and fruit.
