Vegetarian Bulgar Wheat Pilaf style

Bulgar Wheat is a whole grain that cooks quickly and very nutritious without a lot of grainy taste.

  • 1.5 cups uncooked bulghar wheat
  • 3 cups water
  • 1/4 cup margarine
  • 16 oz sliced mushrooms (button is fine, but the earthier, the better in my book!)
  • 1 bunch scallions, chopped
  • 1/2 red onion (optional)
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • Lime from one key lime
  • 1 tbsp dry chili powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
Rinse your bulghar wheat through a thin sieve or by pouring water in and out (without losing all the wheat).

Add 3 cups water and bring to a low boil in a thick pan (I tried to minimize cleaning and used a wok, not recommended as the veggies didn't take the flavor of the spices well). Cover. Allow to simmer after the boil until almost all the water is absorbed, around 15 minutes.

In a separate pan, melt the margarine and add your chili powder, salt, pepper and your sliced vegetables. Stir well and cook until your mushrooms are well done. About this time, your wheat will be done. Mix the two together...

Squeeze lime juice on top... and SERVED!
