Pomegranate Bulgur Pilaf

(Nar Aşı)

Pomegranate Bulgur Pilaf
1/2 cup bulgur, large grain, washed and drained -I always use Turkish
Bulgur which taste is better:)
1 cup hot water
1 medium onion, sliced
5-6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp red pepper paste
1 tsp red pepper paste, hot

1/3 cup Pomegranate
Creamy yogurt

Saute the onion with olive oil for about 2-3 minutes. Add the tomato and red pepper pastes, salt and pepper. Continue to saute for about 3-4 more minutes. Then add the bulgur and warm water. Cover and continue cooking until the bulgur is well cooked, i.e., when all the liquid has evaporated.

Garnish with pomegranate. Serve the Pomegranate Bulgur Pilav Creamy Yogurt by the side.

The pilav is the national dish of Turks (from central asia). So there are more pilav, vegetable and soup recipes with bulgur. I will continue to post them:)
