Bulgur Pilaf

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by winkki

A nice, chewy variation on rice pilaf from "Betty Crocker's New Int'l Cookbook." Easy to make and yet a bit exotic and middle-eastern.

Very good basic recipe, I used it as a base of my dinner. I put in a can of kidney beans, can of tomatoes, some cumin and cayenne pepper to make it a full meal, rather than a side dish. It was delicious and extremely filling. It would be a great side dish without my additions and look forward to using it that way. Thanks for sharing! :)
