This bulgur pilaf is hearty, healthy and perfect for any day of the week. It can be eaten as a main or side dish. This is a vegetarian version but you can easily add some beef in it to add more protein. It’s packed with fiber and the kids love it!
Being Lebanese, we tend to eat alot of rice with our meals. This is a great way to switch things up and keeping it healthy. Some people like to serve this with some plain yogurt on the side or enjoy it with pita bread. Either way, once you try this, I know you’ll enjoy it! It’s such a simple meal that is packed with flavour.
To make this a vegan meal, simply switch out the chicken broth for vegetable broth.
