Lime Poppy Seed Breakfast Bulgar
A fresh stash of poppy seeds propelled me to put a spin on the classic lemon-poppy seed combination. Deviating from the standard citrus, I gave the underrated seed a new partner in crime: the lime. Heavily freckled with tiny poppy seeds, this uniquely textured bulgar radiates an especially tangy flavor from the lime. Honey balances the acid with subtle sweetness and currants punctuate the scene with bursts of fruity flavor.
I probably would fail a drug test today with all the poppy seeds in my system right now...
LIME POPPY SEED BREAKFAST BULGAR
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup bulgar wheat
2 Tbsp ground flax meal
1/3 cup currants
zest and juice of 1 lime
1 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp poppy seeds
1. In a small saucepan bring milk and 1 cup water to a boil. Add bulgar and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 15-20 minutes -- add 1/4 cup at a time of additional water if it absorbs before bulgar is cooked through. The bulgar should be creamy, yet retain its texture.
2. Stir in flax meal, honey, lime zest and juice, poppyseeds and curran ts to serve. Top with additional milk if you like.
