Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a Dutch oven or large saucepan over medium heat. Add bulgur, onion, cabbage and carrots; cook, stirring, until the vegetables begin to soften, about 1 minute. Add broth and soy sauce (or tamari); bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until the bulgur is tender and the broth is absorbed, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve hot, sprinkled with peanuts and parsley.



Note: Bulgur is made by parboiling, drying and coarsely grinding or cracking wheat berries. Don't confuse bulgur with cracked wheat, which is simply that--cracked wheat. Since the parboiling step is skipped, cracked wheat must be cooked for up to an hour whereas bulgur simply needs a quick soak in hot water for most uses. Look for it in the natural-foods section of large supermarkets, near other grains, or online at kalustyans.com, buylebanese.com.
