  • Anna Cheer - I am a huge Nosh fan, but this recipe is a terrible blunder that I can't ignore. Bulgar wheat is absolutely NOT gluten free. This recipe has been up online for a long time and has the potential to cause a lot of harm to unwary people needing a gluten free diet. Please sort it out as soon as possible.
