Vegetarian Bulgur with Peasالبلغر مع البزالية


When my friends invited me for grilled kabob, I decided to make this dish to take with me. It is perfect to serve with meat kabob or vegetable kabob.
1 ½ cup coarse bulgur
1 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
12 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 teaspoon Arabian spice (bahar)
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup frozen peas
½ cup pitted black olives
¼ cup water
In a pot, bring water to a boil. Add salt, and drop the bulgur in the water. Leave it to boil for 10 minutes.
Remove the pot from the stove and pour the bulgur into a colander to drain.
In a deep pan, heat the oil and sauté the onions. Season with salt and spices. Add the peas and stir. Simmer for 5 minutes and add the black olives. Add the bulgur to the onion and peas mixture and add ¼ cup of water. Cover the pan and leave it to simmer on low heat for 15 more minutes until bulgur is soft. Check if it needs more salt.
Serve it with cucumber yogurt salad and pickles.
If you cook this recipe as a side dish, you can serve it with grilled kabob, or grilled chicken.
