1 small size onion, sliced
2 tbsp canned crushed tomatoes
1 tsp red pepper paste

Saute the onion and stems with olive oil for 2-3 minutes. Add the crushed tomatoes and red pepper pastes, and saute for 1-2 more minutes. Then add the bulgur, water, chard leaves, salt and pepper. Cover and cook until all the water evaporates at low heat. Let the Pilaf stand for about 5 minutes.

The canned crushed tomatoes (or tomato puree) are like liquid tomatoes whereas the tomato paste is in a solid form of ground tomatoes:)
