1 cup bulgur, large grain, washed and drained
2 cups hot chicken broth
(or 2 cups water and 1 chicken bouillon)
1 large onion, chopped
1 large tomato, diced
1 cubanelle or green pepper, chunk
2 green onions, chopped
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp salt (if you use a bouillon then 1/2 tsp salt)
Sautee the onion with the butter in a medium-sized pot. Add the tomato, green pepper, green onion, salt and warm chicken broth. When the water stars bubbling, pour in the bulgur and stir. Cook on low heat with the lid half covered. Stir occasionally until the water evaporates.
Serve Bulgur Pilaf with Ayran or Cacik. It's a tasteful, light and healthy dish you can have for lunch on its own. It also goes very well as a side dish with any kind of chicken meal.
* This is a vegetarian dish (use two cups of water instead of chicken broth or bouillon).
