Lemon-Zested Bulgar Wheat

Coconut Milk, Toasted Almonds, Poppy Seeds
1C Coconut Milk
About 1 1/2C Water
1C Fine or Medium Bulgar
1/2 Tsp fine grain Sea Salt
1 1/2 Tsp Poppy Seeds
Grated zest of one lemon
1 1/2 T Honey or to taste
1/3 C sliced Almonds toasted

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring the coconut milk and 3/4 cup of the water to a simmer. Stir in the bulgar, bring the mixture just to a boil then dial down the heat and simmer the mixture, stirring often, for 5 to 20 minutes, or until the bulgar is creamy, but still retains some texture. The size of the bulgar grains will dictate how long they need to cook. If the liquid in the pan is absorbed before the Bulgar is completely cooked, stir in more water 1/4 cup at a time until done. Stir in poppy seeds, lemon zest and honey. Serve hot in individual bowls topped with toasted almonds.
