Buttery Bulgur Wheat with Almonds

Such a simple dish which is great for a lunch time when you want nourishment without being weighted down. Perfect for a Monday lunch after a weekend of excess..

Ingredients (for one)
one spilling handful of bulgur wheat
one sizable knob of butter
salt & pepper
one good handful of flaked almonds

To cook:
Cook the bulgur wheat according to the pack instructions, which usually involves covering with water and bringing to the boil and simmering for about 8 - 10 minutes, or until all of the water has been absorbed..
Separate the grains with a fork and season, add the butter and stir through. Set aside for 5 minutes and allow the butter to soak in.
Add your flaked almonds and eat greedily from a large bowl.
