Here are my nominees:


Now for the wonderful recipe I want to share with you today.  This is one that my sister shared with me and it is so yummy and healthy!  I love the nuttiness of the bulgur and the sweetness of the pears.  It is such wonderful flavor combinations.  Topped off with vanilla yogurt makes this a perfect little breakfast!

I made this dish stovetop but my sister made it in the crockpot which got rave reviews.  If, unlike me, you can plan ahead a little and get this dish ready the night before, I’m sure it is even more delicious in the crockpot. 

I do hope you enjoy my friends!


1 large pear, diced

1 cup fruit nectar (I used apple juice)

1 cup water

1 cup uncooked bulgur

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1 pinch of salt

4 oz (or 1/2 cup) lowfat vanilla yogurt

Place all ingredients (minus pear and yogurt) in a large saucepan and bring to a boil.  Add the diced pears. Mix and cover pan.  Reduce heat to a very low flame and simmer until liquid is absorbed and bulgur is tender. About 12-15 minutes.  Serve in a bowl and top with yogurt.

    This looks delicious and a nice change from my bowl of oatmeal!

      Yes it is a nice change. A little nuttier than oatmeal. Thank you!

    Congratulations to the award and congratulations to your nominees. Big fan of bulgur, but never thought about having it for breakfast. Looks and reads very tasty. Something I’m going to dry.
