Easy Bulgur Stir Fry


Okay #Fitfam this is one for you..I sure had a headache after a long day of cleaning and I needed something really easy to make while I watched Nollywood . I love Nollywood o 🙂 Although some stories of theirs does seem redundant, but I sure do love me some Nollywood. I decided to do a stir fried rice for my ajebutters and some stir fried bulgur for myself. And by the time I counted 30minutes, I was done with preparing dinner 🙂 It was that easy

This is a lazy recipe for one of those days when you do not want to spend hour in the kitchen. It is fit friendly too

I really do hope you enjoy this recipe. It is a good one to start your week with. You may use coarse bulgur grains for it or even rice. You may also use seafood and take out the cornstarch


This is a great recipe for the family. My ajebutters eat bulgur. They call it “the other rice” You may even use a variety of vegetables. Trust me, it is quite versatile.


I remember the first time I made my ajebutters bulgur, they made faces and looked at me with the “woman you are crazy” look on their faces. I just smiled and after another try, they got used to it.

Trust me you will love it.


No more stories.

Here is a ready to print recipe for you 🙂
