    cup bulgur (dry)

    cup dried apricot, diced
  • 12
    cup onion, diced
  • 3
    ounces sliced almonds (I use half of a 6 oz package, that's why it is not measured in "cups")

DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare bulgur according to directions on package (usually boil 2x as much water as you will make bulgur, take off heat, add bulgur, stir, let sit 5 mins).
  • Stir saffron into bulgur (you can do this at any time, you can add saffron into the water as it boils -- I usually do -- or you can add it after the bulgur is made -- which I did when I forgot it!).
  • While bulgur is cooking, sauté onions in butter over med-high heat, as soon as onions begin to get soft (2 mins) add apricots. Lower heat to med-low and sauté for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Add sliced almonds to the apricot/onion mix.
  • When bulgur is ready, add apricot/onion/almond mix; fluff and serve!
