Bulgur is a great ingredient for making veggie burgers. It is a small grain whose tiny size helps the burgers hold together. It has a chewy texture that is pleasing to the burger palate. These Bulgur Burgers (try saying that three times fast) have a simple flavor that will go with just about any of your favorite toppings. I find myself gravitating to this burger quite frequently in the summer – it seems perfectly suited to tomatoes, lettuce, and cucumbers from the garden.
