So, once again this recipe is from my all time favourite blog, Chocolate Covered Katie. Her delicious, simple, and easy to follow recipes are always the first things I look at when I’m in the mood to cook or bake. Katie, if you see this, your blog is amazing! Keep it up! 🙂

This recipe is a lunch and dinner-time favourite of mine. It takes a bit of preparation because the bulgur needs to be cooked, but it’s oh so worth it.

In my meals, I’m a fan of mostly vegetables and less grains and other things, so I altered Katie’s recipe a little. I substituted the bok choy for kale, and used half the bulgur, but it turned out delicious! I had never cooked bulgur before seeing this recipe, but I sure do cook it often now!

The Recipe 

Bulgur Pilaf

Serves 4.

Ingredients:

1 cup vegetable stock

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 teaspoon sesame oil

2 1/2 teaspoons fresh, grated ginger

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 zucchini, chopped

5 green onions, cut into about 1-inch pieces (don’t use the roots)

2 medium carrots, finely diced

3 cups bok choy or spinach (EVTK’s version: use kale)

1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic

4 cups cooked bulgur (it works best if you chill this in the fridge for a few hours before using) (EVTK version: 2 cups)

Directions:
1) In a bowl, combine the first 5 ingredients. Set aside.

2) Preheat a pan or wok over medium-high heat and sauté the carrots and zucchini in your sauté-liquid of choice.

3) Add in about 1/4 of the stock mixture. Stir-fry for 3-5 minutes.

4) Add the green onions, bok choy (or spinach or kale), garlic, and another 1/4 of the stock mixture, and stir-fry for another 3 minutes.

5) Add the bulgur and the rest of the stock mixture. Stir constantly for about 5 minutes.

(All credit for the recipe goes to the lovely Katie) 🙂

These burritos, made by Glutenfreeda Foods are delicious. They have vegan ones, vegetarian ones, breakfast ones, and more. I usually get the gluten free and vegan burritos, and eat them for lunch.

Sometimes there are days when it’s literally impossible to cook something to eat for lunch, and these burritos are lifesavers on those days. I will definitely continue to buy them. 🙂

The burritos are easy to cook and have a nice, dense-but-not-gross texture and taste. Make sure to cook them long enough though so that the bread will soften. I usually take mine out of the freezer in the morning and microwave them for about 1 minute & 30 seconds at 12. You can take them out of the wrapper and grill them or bake them too!
