Bulgur, Broccoli and Feta Cheese Pilaf

The tang of feta cheese gives this simple dish character. For a pleasing accompaniment, try sliced oranges and red onion drizzled with vinaigrette.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup uncooked bulgur
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3 to 4 Tbs. olive oil
  • 4 medium cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 medium tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1 bunch broccoli, stalks peeled and cut into bite-size pieces, florets separated (5 cups)
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese (5 oz.)
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper

Preparation

  1. In small saucepan, combine bulgur, salt and 2 cups water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside, covered.
  2. Meanwhile, in large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring often, 30 to 60 seconds; do not brown. Stir in tomatoes and cook 2 minutes.
  3. Add broccoli and oregano; mix well. Add 1/4 cup water, cover and increase heat to medium-high. Cook until broccoli is just tender, uncovering and stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in cooked bulgur, feta and pepper. Drizzle with remaining 1 to 2 tablespoons oil and serve.
