Turkish Style Bulgur Pilaf
Healthy and delicious!!
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoon Turkish tomato paste (or use regular tomato paste)
- 1 cup bulgur wheat (I used quick cooking bulgur from Trader Joes)
- 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
- 2 teaspoons salt
Heat a medium saucepan with the olive oil. Add the tomato paste and cook on medium heat for a minute or two. I bought some Turkish tomato paste from Istanbul. I got the spicy kind, which has chilies in it- but regular tomato paste can be substituted. Add the bulgur and stir. Add the broth and salt and bring to a boil. Lower the heat, cover and let cook for 10 minutes. Turn heat off, fluff with fork and let sit for another 5 minutes. Check for seasonings and serve.
