Bulgur and Tomatoes

Recommended Posts

Found this on the WW board from DEBBIOINMA.

 

Sounds like it is pretty good.

 

 

I made this tonite.. it was DEEEEELICIOUS!!

1 T olive oil

1 medium onion, chopped

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 cup bulgur

1 1/3 cups chicken broth

1 can diced tomatoes

1-2 teaspoons salt

 

over medium heat saute onions in olive oil until they are translucent. add garlic and bulgur.. cook for about 2-3 minutes. add chicken broth and diced tomatoes. bring to a boil then reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 20 minutes or until liquid is mostly absorbed.

 

i used it as a side dish.. but it woould be AMAZING if you added shrimp and sprikled it with fat free feta!!

Donna,

Thanks...looks good...and like it would lend itself to Southwestern spices.

This was very good. Since my husband didn't like it....he's a white-rice man....I have plenty left and it will make great lunches along with a green salad. Thanks for taking the time to post this recipe....it'll be a standard for me.

I make something like this using chili powder and low-fat cheese (the cheese would make it non-Core tho) - I call it "cheesy chili bulgur" - DH was skeptical at first, but became a convert.

I bet this would be great with a bag of fresh spinach added at the end, just enough to wilt the leaves. Yum!!

NOw I read about the spinach, I just made this and had some spinach in there but of course didn't think of it.

 

This was wonderful, would definitely make again, and easy too as all is made in the frying pan. Yum

The spinach does sound like a good addition. I think I'll try it that way next time.

can you do something similar with pre-done bulgar? i have a whole pot of it in my fridge that i made yesterday, and am trying to figure out what to do with it.

 

i am still not sure i like it. i found a coarser variety while i was in the states, but still not sure what to do with it now that it's done and in my fridge! lol!

LT,

You can saute up some onions, garlic, mushrooms and mix with the bulgur in a frying pan to heat it through. Great for a pilaf/side dish. Or use Chinese-y stuff for a stir fry.

 

Did you cook it in chicken broth? Add some salt? Those two things make a HUGE difference in the taste of the cooked bulgur.

 

Did you use the fine ground? I don't like it as much as medium or coarse, with my real preference is coarse all the time.

 

If you want an interesting go at it, try putting some of the cold bulgur in a bowl, top with fresh or canned (in own juice/drained) pineapple and some FF feta cheese. I add 1 tsp of my oil to this as well as raspberry balsamic vinegar and if you can find it, Ken's Lite Raspberry/Walnut viniagrette, 1 T only. (1 point)--or something similar.. The balsamic and oil that you add help stretch that dressing. I also have added strawberries, green onion, cooked chicken to this.

 

It is tangy/sour/sweet and very interesting.

 

But I'm weird, I eat cold bulgur out of my prepped stuff all the time.

I made a quick version of this yesterday. Not as good but good in a time pinch. I drained a can of tomatoes over microwave bowl. Added water to the tomato broth to make it two cups, added a bouillion cube and 1 cup of bulgur and nuked for 15 minutes. When bulgur was done I added the tomatoes and mixed in.

This would be good, doing it SueC's way, with those Rotel diced chillis and tomatoes, making it a mexican bulgar type thing.

 

Add in some ground beef mixed with taco seasoning and/or some refried beans and you have a full meal, with very little prep time.

Bumping this up... I'm making my menu for the week so I was looking for a good bulgur recipe and it looks like this is a winner! :) I'm gonna try the diced tomatoes with the green chilies and add diced chicken breast with a little LF cheddar.

1 cup cooked bulgar = 2 pt.

 

 

Figure out your oil per serving; 1 tsp.=1 pt. :salut :bcb_smile

I keep simplifying this and it is still so good. Made it last night. Just dumped a can of tomatoes in fry pan and added some bulgur. About a half cup. As it cooked down I just added some water then I added some ff feta and some spinach to wilt down. DH even asked for some and liked it! HAd some more for breakfast this am. I like how the flavor changes with the type of canned tomatoes you use.
