Bulgur Wheat Pilaf

  • 3 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 Onion Finely Chopped
  • 1 Tomato large chopped
  • 2 Peppers preserved in oil, chopped
  • 14 oz Chick Peas can, drained
  • 225 g Bulgur Wheat
  • 1 teaspoon Tomato Puree
  • 550 ml Stock vegetable


  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan then gently saute the onion with the Chickpeas.
  • Once the onion has softened, add the chopped tomato, peppers and tomato puree.
  • Cook for another minute, then stir in the Bulghur Wheat, making sure it is well coated in the tomato/onion/chick pea mixture.
  • Season well and pour over the stock or water. Turn down to a very gently simmer and cover.
  • Leave for 15 minutes after which time the liquid should be absorbed.
  • Remove pan from the heat and leave for 5 minutes to allow the Wheat to fluff up.
  • Serve with my Soutzoukakia Rissoles and Sauce over the Bulgur Wheat.
