DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium bowl, combine bulgur and boiling water. Let stand 10 minutes to soften.
  • In a deep-sided skillet with a lid heat olive oil and sesame oil over medium heat.
  • Add the onion and cook, stirring until softened, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly, about 1 minute.
  • Add the chickpeas, broth, reserved bulgur (and any accumulated water at bottom of bowl), pimiento (if using), cumin, salt and pepper. Stir well to combine; bring mixture to boil over high heat.
  • Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until the bulgur has absorbed all the liquid, about 15 minutes.
  • If the bulgur seems to wet (it should be moist but not soggy), increase heat to medium and cook, uncovered, stirring often, until fairly dry.
  • Fluff with a fork and serve warm.
