About this recipe: Very basic yet tasty side that goes well with roast chicken or kebabs. Any type of dried fruit can be used, such as sultanas or dried apricots, but I prefer cranberries.


Serves: 2 

  • 225ml (8 fl oz) water
  • 8 tablespoons bulghur wheat
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • 1 knob butter
  • 30g (1 oz) dried cranberries

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Bring water to a boil in a pot, and mix in bulghur, stock cube and butter. Cover pot, reduce heat to low, and simmer 15 minutes.
  2. Fluff cooked bulghur with a fork, and gently mix in the dried cranberries.


Easily make this into a vegetarian dish by using vegetable stock instead of chicken stock.
