    justcallmetoni's Note:

    At first glance, the origins of this dish may be a bit confusing. We associate risotto with Italia and the spices are North African. Truth be told, the dish is actually from Cyprus. Bulgur is a frequent menu item for me and I'm looking forward to trying this one as pumpkins become more readily available in the market. The original recipe calls for a much larger amount of oil, I've reduced it to make this dish a little lighter. Posted for the Zaar World Tour.

    1. 1
      Place oil in a large heavy saucepan over medium high heat. When the oil is hot (not smoking), add the cinnamon and stir-fry for 10 seconds. Add the onions and cook for 2-3 minutes allowing the onions to color a bit around the edges.
    2. 2
      Add the diced pumpkin, bulgur and salt. Stir-fry for 3 minutes. Add water or broth, stir and bring to a boil. Cover the pot with a lid and reduce to a low simmer and cook for 30 minutes. Lift the lid, cover the pot quickly with a clean dishcloth, return lid to pot. Remove from heat and let stand for 15 minutes.
    3. 3
      Stir gently before serving.

      I used pumpkin for this recipe, and I don't think it's my favorite type of winter squash. Maybe I would have liked it more if I'd used butternut or acorn... this was a good recipe, but a little bland. It needs some more spices, or maybe a little salt. Overall good though. Thanks.

      Excellent! Healthful, tasty and just a little sweet. You could probably add some honey if you wanted. I made this with butternut squash and vegetable broth. I'm starting to eat more bulgur myself. Thanks as always Toni!
