DIRECTIONS

  • In a covered saucepan, saute the onions in the olive oil for a few minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the salt, pepper, basil, bay leaf, and rosemary or marjoram.
  • Cover and cook for about 10 minutes, unil the onions are translucent and beginning to brown.
  • Stir in the bulghur. Toast for about 2 minutes, until the bulghur begins to darken.
  • Add the water, cover tightly, and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat to very low.
  • Let the bulghur steam for about 15 minutes.
  • Each grain should be separate and tender, but not chewy. Add a little more water if the bulghur seems underdone, but be sparing, or it will become mushy.
  • Remove the bay leaf and serve hot.
