Bulgar and Peas: Because You Can't Have Rice and Beans Every Day
It’s shrinky dink cold and snowy on April 16, so instead of a salad today I’m going with a warming, stick to your ribs one pot dish. Easy Pea-sy.
1 leek, cleaned (they’re filthy) and sliced thinly into half moons
2 T coconut oil
2 t salt
1 T turmeric
Juice of 1 lemon
1 T sumac
1 T fenugreek
1 C dry bulgar
2 C frozen peas
¼ C tomato paste
2 C water
Pinch of pepper
Melt the coconut oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
Add the leek and a pinch of salt. Stir and sauté for 3 minutes.
Add all other ingredients except for the water. Stir to combine and cook for 3 minutes.
Add the water and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to the lowest setting, cover and simmer for 20 mins.
The water should be totally absorbed. Taste and adjust seasoning.
