Leek Bulgur Pilaf

(Pırasa Aşı)

Leek Bulgur Pilaf
3⁄4 cup bulgur, large grain, washed and drained - I always use Turkish Bulgur which tastes better:)
1 cup hot water
1 leek, washed, thinly sliced
1⁄3 cup canned chickpeas, rinsed
5-6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp tomato paste
1⁄2 tsp red pepper paste, hot

Sauté the leek, tomato and red pepper- and tomato pastes with olive oil for 2-3 minutes at medium heat. Then add the remaining ingredients, stir. Turn the heat down to low. Cover and cook until all the water evaporates. Let the Pilaf stand for about 5 minutes.

Serve with home-made yoğurt or Ayran or Cacık on the side.

2 servings.
