  • Bring a large pan of salted water to boil over high heat.
  • Add the broccoli and cook until it is crip tender but still green, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Drain the broccoli and rinse it briefly under cold water.
  • Using the same pan, add the oil.
  • Then add the onion, garlic, pepper, and oregano if using.

  • Add the tomatoes, bulgur, water, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to low.
  • Cover it and cook until all the liquid is absorbed.
  • Start checking at 10 minutes but it may take up to 15.
  • Turn off the heat and add the broccoli and the black beans.
  • Cover the pan and let it sit until the bulgur is tender but still slightly firm.
  • This will take about 10 to 15 minutes.
