What is Bulgur Pilaf?

A staple to Middle Eastern cuisine, bulgur is whole grain that is distinguished as the healthier alternative to rice. With higher amounts of fiber than brown rice and lesser calories than quinoa, bulgur is also a good source of protein. This healthy whole grain is widely used to make a popular version of pilaf, a wheat dish cooked satisfyingly in vegetable stock and other spices.

You'll see how it can change the way you and your family enjoy mealtimes together. To whip up this decadent dish, these ingredients should be prepared:

  • 1 medium size onion (finely minced)
  • 3-4 fresh onions (chopped)
  • 1 clove of big garlic (crushed)
  • 1 glass of Coarse Bulgur
  • 3 glasses of vegetable stock
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 2 cups of pumpkin or squash (chopped as small cubes and peeled)
  • 2 tablespoons of black currant or dry grapes
  • 1 tablespoon of charred pine kernel

Once you've prepped all the ingredients you need, it's time to start the magic:

  4. When it starts to boil, you may now add the chopped pumpkin and two tablespoons of black currant. Continue cooking for 15 minutes with the lid remaining closed to allow the pumpkin to soften.
