Cracked Wheat (Bulgur) Pilaf


1 onion, diced
2 green chilli peppers (omit if you don't like chilli or you can substitute with red capsicum), diced
4 ripe Tomatoes, peeled and diced
1/2 cup cracked wheat (bulgur), washed
2 tablespoons Canola Oil (Olive oil if you prefer)
2 cups hot water
1 cube chicken stock powder, or use chicken stock if on hand (optional)


1. Sweat the onion and peppers in the oil, add the tomatoes and cook on low heat crushing the tomatoes as you cook it.

2. Pour in the hot water and boil up the tomatoes, then turn the flame to low heat and add in the bulgur, let it simmer for 10 minutes.

3. Finally mix in the chicken stock powder and season with salt. I don't like my bulgur pilav too dry so i turn off the heat when its a little juicy.

I usually serve this dish with some chicken. In this instance I marinated some chicken drumsticks and potatoes with paprika,olive oil, salt and pepper and cooked in an oven bag for 1.5 hours at 180c.

Thank you Dilzy's Kitchen. This recipe has an interesting high and low GI combination. Good for immediate and prolonged energy release. I wasn't hungry for quite sometime.
