Healthy Chinese Style Bulgur

Mung bean sprouts are a rich source of protein and vitamins A, B, C, and E. In just one cup of mung bean sprouts there are 3 grams of protein and 0 grams of fat. Rinse the sprouts thoroughly before using.
  Bulgur 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Boiling water 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Vegetable broth/Water 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Thinly sliced celery 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Diced red bell pepper 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Green onions 3 , thinly sliced
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), minced or pressed
  Minced ginger 1 Teaspoon, peeled
  Coarsely chopped bean sprouts 2 Cup (32 tbs) (Fresh Ones)
  Canned sliced water chestnuts 1 Cup (16 tbs), drained
  Soy sauce 4 Tablespoon
  Ground black pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon

Place the bulgur and salt in a saucepan or heatproof bowl. Add the boiling water and stir just until mixed. Cover and let stand for about 25 minutes, until the bulgur is tender and all of the water has been absorbed. The bulgur should be tender but not mushy. Fluff with a fork, cover, and set aside.
Heat the vegetable broth in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the celery, bell pepper, green onions, garlic, and ginger. Cook and stir for about 3 minutes, until the vegetables just begin to soften. Add more broth or water as needed to prevent sticking.
Stir in the bulgur and mix well.
Add the bean sprouts and water chestnuts and sprinkle with the soy sauce and black pepper. Toss gently to mix. Cook over medium heat for about 3 minutes, turning with a spatula, until heated through. Serve immediately.
Stored in a covered container in the refrigerator, leftover Chinese Fried Bulgur will keep for up to 3 days.
