Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onion in hot oil until golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir tomatoes through the onion; continue cooking until tomatoes soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Pour beef broth over the onion and tomato mixture; bring to a boil.
  2. Stir bulgur into the boiling broth; season with salt and black pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook at a simmer until the bulgur begins to soften, about 5 minutes. Add lentils and chickpeas; continue cooking until the moisture evaporates and the bulgur is tender, 3 to 5 minutes more.
  3. Remove the skillet from heat. Set aside to cool about 30 minutes. Fold mint into the bulgur mixture to serve.

Okay, I made it as directed and it's not bad!!! But I suspected the proportions mights have been off. My suggestion would be to increase the lentils 1/2 cup and the chickpeas 1/2 cup and you should be on point. The bulgur just seems to be rather top-heavy. In any case, healthy & filling!!! Love me some Middle-Eastern Cuisine ;-)

Nice recipe, I added in some ground beef and switched a cup of rice for the two cups of bulgur.

Good recipe! Like the other review said, I decided to increase the amount of lentils and chick peas. That seems to be a good decision. Otherwise a good, healthy dish. I keep thinking it needs just a little bit more of something. Either more tomatoes, a little curry powder / garlic, something like that.
