Turmeric Spiced Bulgur Recipe by Spicie Foodie

Happy Sunday everyone! As you can see instead of snapshots I have a recipe for you today. It’s been a very busy week with little spare time. On top of that my husband has been ill with a cold and I’ve just begun feeling the effects. I’m hoping I can will it away…we’ll see what happens. So because I’m not feeling too good right now I’m keeping it super short.
