Bulgar wheat pilaf

If you are looking for ways to consume less in the way of animal products, this recipe may be just the ticket. I had it last night and it WAS AMAZING!

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 medium onions, sliced thinly
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 pound mushrooms
  • 1 cup bulgar wheat
  • 1.5 cups broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 teaspoon tarragon
  • chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat the oil in a skillet that can go in the oven over medium heat. Add onions and garlic. Cook until fragrant and the onions are starting to carmelize. This should take around 15 minutes.
  2. Stir in mushrooms and cook about five minutes.
  3. Add broth, bulgar wheat, water and tarragon (you can also add salt and pepper to taste). Bring to a boil.
  4. Cover and put in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the liquid has been absorbed.
  5. Toss with parsley and walnuts and serve. Enjoy!

This is a filling and flavorful meal that I will have again and again.
